Christmas Baking Time: Reminiscing on some classics

I can't believe Christmas is here again!  I have just finished making my 300 or so alfajores and 100ish mince pies for the wonderful little baking gifts I love to give friends and family as a start to the festive season!  I thought I might just reminisce on a few recipes I have written about that always made Christmas so wonderfully special... as always Christmas is a time of wonderful memories that were always created by the many treats and traditions that my mum would make every year...

It is priceless the memories she has left my brother and I, who have always retained the magical moment that is Christmas... I miss you mum... In my own little way - with every Alfajor I make... I hope to carry a small measure of who you were... and a memory of all the smiles that you brought to my every day and culminated with such amazing times at Christmas every year...Merry Christmas!

Alfajores are still the most sought after delight every Christmas... don't let another one go by without making a batch!

Classic Fruit Mince Pies... need I say more?

Bizcochuela Blancaflor... the lovely cake which is the perfect antidote to chocolate bathed, creamed filled treats of Christmas days...

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
