Recreating Christmas Dessert Leftovers!

There are so many Christmas sweets and desserts that we love making each year. Each culture has their own special delicacies.

 

I was inspired by the wide variety of Christmas sweets and have come up with 3 recipes to recreate the ones you may have leftover.

 

Keep in mind that these recipes can actually stand on their own! You can make them whether you have leftovers or not and all year round…

 

1. New Year Cake Cream Pie

For those of you who are acquainted with the Ekmek Kataifi.. a traditional Greek sweet.. this is a different version of it. For those of you who are not acquainted… well get to baking because you are missing out! Give it a try! It is a great way to recreate any leftover cakes you may have and turn them into a completely new and delicious experience!

2. Chocolate and Almond Snow Ball Log

Almond snow balls are actually another Greek traditional sweet called Kourabiedes. I’ve given them this name in English because they look just like snowballs! Crumbly cookies made with almonds, butter, heavy cream and dusted with icing sugar. Delicious! Imagine adding some dark chocolate couverture and cognac to create a scrumptious log in just 20 minutes! Need I say more?

3... And last but DEFENITELY not least….. Aki’s Christmas Cookie Cheesecake!

Another Greek traditional sweet you MUST get acquainted with… Melomakarona! Amazingly aromatic, spiced cookies in syrup that are soft and just like little cakes! Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, orange, walnuts, honey… all mixed together to give you the ultimate Christmas cookie! Now imagine them as a crust for your cheesecake!! Simply divine….
