Hello Christmas buddies~ Like me, most of you probably have your tree up and decorated by now.
What are some of the things that come to mind when you think about Christmastime?
Sleigh bells and fresh fallen snow? Evergreen boughs trimmed with tinsel? Frosted window panes. Laughter and sipping mugs of hot chocolate with loved ones in front of a lovely fire?
How about Plum pudding and mincemeat pies?
...and gingerbread boys always bring a smile to your face and how about a lovely gingerbread cake?
When I made my gingerbread cake this last time I decided to serve it a little differently. Why not saute some apple slices with a little butter and brown sugar just until tender crisp, then serve with some good vanilla ice cream and warm caramel sauce drizzled over it all?
Take it from me, it's delicious and just a little out of the ordinary. Simple and elegant too. Your guests will love it!
