Lassy Mogs. A Newfoundland favourite; well spiced, soft cookies with a deep molasses flavour and filled with dried fruit and crunchy pecans. Irresistible!
Simnel Cake. A British Easter tradition. A light fruitcake with a layer of marzipan baked into the centre, then topped with a traditional marzipan decoration.
Peach Fruitcake. A decades old family recipe for a dense, flavourful and very moist fruitcake for the Holiday season, with instructions for soaking in brandy too.
The Best Classic Canadian Butter Tarts. There’s a reason why we have a national obsession with these sweet, buttery, caramel-y tarts. I’ve sampled them in many places across the country and this thick pastry version is my favourite. Don’t do the raisin debate, just leave them out if they are not your thing. Everyone should be able to enjoy them as they like them.
Christmas Pudding. This simplified recipe is baked, not steamed but still has all the great molasses spice flavour of a traditional pudding. Incredibly delicious with our Rum & Butter Sauce!
