Remember these little gems? They were one of this first recipes I attempted. Not very hard…but I still thought I could improve on the time and effort level. Here’s how they originally looked like in the book, followed by the way they turned out the first time I made them…..
Kind of Christmasy all on their own right? Well here’s my new and improved version….
Still cute ! And instead of mixing almond paste, and using lots of butter(and dishes !) , I used a yellow cake mix, mixed with some almond meal (ground Almonds) and still used the frozen raspberry pieces and the single fresh raspberry tucked into the middle of each. Easy-Peasy ! Plus…it had the added bonus of making many more than the original recipe !!! Truly going to be one of our favorites !
