Yes, the title is a reference to Game of Thrones!! But well, I also did promise the recipe of these cookies to several people. And I am finally writing the blog post while waiting for the first episode of final season of Game of Thrones!
I had a little bit of rum left from previous bakings, and I started to think what I could do with it. I didn’t want to make yet another cake – instead I made these cookies which have oh so many other delicious ingredients as well!
Erm, well, I’m about to have a heart attack at this very moment. So I decided to work on this blog post. The thing is, I am not about to have a heart attack because of pineapples.
I’ve been working on dried fruit & nut combinations lately. And this cake is the best result so far. I mean, seriously, I could have eaten the whole thing by myself if I didn’t have a place to take it..
Vegan baking is not difficult. At all. And here is a good example.
These cookies are for those who love chocolate, who can’t get enough of chocolate, who can live on chocolate alone, who dream about chocolate at night.. so these cookies are for those who are like me!
Ok, lately I’ve been trying to bake healthier cakes (well, not always, but frequently!). This is such a trial. This loaf cake is only sweetened with honey and sweet potatoes, which also give colour and texture. The result is a sweet – but not “too sweet” – cake.
So, I associate ginger / ginger cake with winter mostly. That’s why I made it often in the past few months. Most of them were regular cakes but this one is gluten free!
When I was in Istanbul last month, I tried to find out the recipe for the one dessert I missed for many many years. This orange jelly dessert, that I remembered a bit differently, was one that my mother made all the time when I was a kid. It was one of my favourite dishes in the world. And then she stopped making it. It was forgotten. Until 2 weeks ago.
So, I’ve never been a fan of apple pies, really. But it goes back to my dislike for heavy pie doughs. That’s why when I made this pie, using phyllo sheets as the pie dough, I absolutely loved it – it is so so much lighter and crispier, and indeed flakier than other pies.
