I have antlers on my car this year (much to ATs dismay), a lovely tree, Christmas themed tea-towels in my kitchen and a wreath on my door.
I love Christmas.
Like many bakers out there, I think it’s a wonderful opportunity to bake gifts and try out all the yummy and uber-fattening recipes that I don’t feel justified making through out the year.
Spiced nuts, melting moments, rocky road….I could go on.
This year, my heart goes out to Melting Moments….those buttery, crumbly, calorie laden little miracles.
I made some edible gifts for KTs teacher this year that included these cookies.
I’ll post the Melting Moments recipe shortly, but in the meantime, I shall alert you all to a great recipe I found on Tastespotting for Spicy Maple Glazed Walnuts .
This recipe is really easy and the flavour combination is almost perfect. The only thing I would suggest is baking the walnuts in the oven a little after coating them with the spiced sugar.
It just hardens the sugar onto the nut, and becomes a little less messy.
