I thought I should create a thread for desserts, sweets, confection-making, etc. For selfish reasons, of course. I made a clafouti the other night. Not just a clafouti; a heaven-sent, got-religion,

Thanks to Pingarina for spreading the love. I made a plum clafouti for dessert last night (using the batter recipe Omni posted). We enjoyed it enormously.

What did Ali serve last night - was it sauteed pears?

Yuletide Bread, a Swedish recipe.  I'd been hanging on to this recipe for weeks, nudging N to make it.  Despite the name, it's not a yeast bread, but rather a cake/quick bread.  It's not super-sweet, and goes really well with coffee/tea--nice for breakfast or an afternoon break.

Oh God I wish I had someone I could nudge to make this.

N made two desserts this past weekend. One was a simple combination of Baker's Ginger Nuts (the spiciest ginger cookie I've ever had) and Bird's Custard; the other was a bake/casserole with sweet potatoes, coconut milk, regular and golden raisins, and pecans.  Now these were made separately and made to be eaten separately, but frankly they're pretty good together.

We have a family tradition of making poop emoji cookies for Purim (hamenstachen are coming). Boy helped with the decoration. Also known as our critique of the last 12 months.

Look, I know I didn't make them.  And objectively, they are not a high-quality product.

But let me just say how insanely I love Joyva ring jells (from nearby Bushwick:  I must have passed by their factory about a million times).

If anyone were to make a Genin-level version of this, I would be their BITCH.  Forever.

The heart wants what it wants. I like them too, my grandmother used to have them sometimes. Wierdly, or I guess not so weirdly, you can get something similar here around Christmas.

Yes, Joyva jelly rings are IT.  I should have gotten a K for P version.

Joyva halvah, OTOH, was always kind of dry to me, with the texture a bit like the inside of a Butterfinger.  I never really liked halvah until I had the bulk version (ie, sold in blocks at Sahadi) for the first time.

Are these anything close to what you are hoping for?
