Holiday Foods

Here are a few pictures of things I made over the holidays. I'm not going to go into much detail here, but I wanted to get these posted. If you have any questions about the stuff listed, leave a comment and I'll add more. Oh, and you can click on the picture to see it better.

Chocolate Streudle: I had some thick philo dough that had to get used so I made this. It was a bit crunchier than I would have liked. Great flavor.

Baklava: Great as always. This one I did on my own. The filling was walnuts I believe. I did make too much syrup so they were a bit stickier than usual.

Assorted Candies: Peppermint Bark, Chocolate Chews, Caramels, Chocolates, and Cashew Coconut Brittle: These were given out as Christmas gifts. This was the first time I made candies such as these. The peppermint bark and the brittle went over the best. I've been asked to make more brittle next year.

Fig and Walnut Tart: I saw this in a magazine and thought I would give it a try. It was good, a bit time consuming though. Everything was made from scratch. In the future, I would use the crust again but would pass on the figs and walnuts. Figs still are not my thing.

Fig and Walnut tart? Hm. I used chopped figs in molasses cookies, and I thought the flavors complemented each other well. My mom thought it was a bad idea (normally, it called for raisins), and Nala thought they were awful (but he doesnt like dark molasses flavor).

I needed to use up molasses and dates, so the recipe worked for me (and I love both ingredients, too).
