Favorite festive treats

Favorite festive treats bring back so many memories of my Childhood Christmas. No our Noël experience in France has been somewhat different and sometimes challenging, but we remained optimistic as this season allows you to be. The smells of Speculoos spiced lattes, Nutella filled crepes and glue wine. When it comes to celebrating a French Christmas I have it pretty down to a T for this year to come. Come and read a bit more and get a few ideas for your Christmas table.

Coffee Speculoos cookies

Coffee speculoos cookies and Espresso's are made for each other! I made these cookies last week and my taste tester was quite pleased. This is an old traditional South African recipe. In France, "Petite Gateau" is the name for small cookies that you receive with your tea or coffee and these cookies are perfect to accompany a hot cup of tea.

French Cremora tart

French Cremora tart has become a favorite of mine...Crumbly ginger base with a creamy tangy filling! Ginger biscuits are used instead of the traditional coconut biscuits that are found only in SA. I had to make some substitutions, but it worked out great!!
