This is my favorite time of year, and it’s also my busiest. Not only because of the holidays…no matter how much I try to get everything organized, somehow I end up having a greater amount of work all around, but I still want to have homemade goodies for my family, part of what I like about this time of year is time in the kitchen with my daughter, especially if I can find a delicious, festive and easy treat. This recipe is just that.
The original recipe calls for fresh cranberries to make the spread, but since we don’t find fresh cranberries in Guatemala, my version uses canned whole cranberry sauce. Make sure you don’t get the jellied cranberry sauce that you slice, I don’t know if that would work. I added a bit more sugar, and let it simmer for a while so it thickens, I also added some orange zest to give it extra flavor.
This is great for coffee, it’s not too sweet and the dough is flaky and it almost melts in your mouth. I guarantee you won’t be able to have just one piece! To make them a bit more festive, you could use silver-colored sprinkles on top of the melted white chocolate. Use them before the chocolate hardens.
