Recipe review - Almond Addiction Pge 24 Festive Flavour cookbook
« on: November 22, 2010, 02:22:50 am »
This is a big 5/5, why didn't I find it last year  ???  The recipe has omitted to tell you to line the tin but later tells you to remove the paper.  The edges may get overbrown but just cut them off and eat them yourself  ;)  I may dip the corners in chocolate later, as suggested in the recipe but they are just delicious as is and a must for your Christmas hampers.

Ohh Goodie.  I've just ordered a copy of this to inspire me for Christmas.  Thanks for the review  - always good to know a recipe has been tried and tested.

They do look lovely. I must go and check out the recipe as I don't remember it.

Oh Judy these look so good.  I've been very good lately and not made any desserts for a while, but I think I could sample one or two of these.  I'm off to check out the recipe too, great photo BTW.  :D

Thanks Julie, nice compliment from someone whose pictures sell any recipe  :) ;)  Just took the edges around to Mum to nibble on and she loved it.  I had to tell her to limit herself to one piece a day though as she has put on weight lately - her answer was 'yes Judith'.

ROFL. That is the sort of thing my Mum would have said, and then proceeded to do exactly as she wanted.

I wondered what this recipe was when I first read your reply Uni - how could I have forgotten this one, it is a little gem.  Must make a list of all the things I do from year to year for hampers - might make things a bit easier when the time comes around again.  Trouble is I'd probably lose/misplace the list  :-))
