Sesame candy

I put a star on this recipe long time ago in Google Reader, but only Tasty weeks encouraged me to try to make my first candy 🙂 They were delicious – disappeared in a few minutes (maybe because I make only a quarter the recipe). Nice! 🙂 Tomorrow I have to look for another candy recipe. And meanwhile I can say that these candies are like kozinaki with a mild flavour of honey. And they are not very hard (in a fridge they became crunchy).

Sesame candy

Time needed:
Yields: 30 candies
Calories: 85 kcal / candy

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 2 cups sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsps. black sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (I used white sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions:

  • Prepare two baking sheets (The source recommends to butter them, but I didn’t do that).
  • In a large skillet toast the sesame seeds on medium heat until golden and aromatic (Caution, they get burned very quickly if not stirring).If using both light and dark sesame seeds, toast them separately so the changing color is more obvious. Set aside.
  • In the same skillet, mix the remaining ingredients.
  • Bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring continuously, then let boil for 2 minutes, still stirring.
  • Remove from heat. Working quickly, stir seeds into the sugar mixture.
  • Transfer immediately to the baking sheet, cover with another baking sheet then using rolling pin make thin, even pieces. Let cool a little bit.
  • Take off the top baking sheet and cut with a knife in desired shape candies.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Store in layers separated by wax paper.
  • Enjoy!

Granola su medumi

Granola with honey

Granola that smells honey, but very crunchy and addictive like sunflowers. Everytime I prepare it, half of it I eat alone – without milk, just like crunchy cookies. Even my hubby loved it, just honey is not recommended for him, so next time I will prepare it with golden syrup instead of honey. And I like this granola without any mix-ins!

Pumpkin cutout cookies

I thought to bake these cookies for a long time, but… And one day I took the cup of pumpkin purée from the freezer and used only a half. So the day of that cookies has come 🙂 I rolled those cookies very thinly because I like thin cookies 🙂 Happy that I halved the recipe because I made a lot of cookies, really a lot. I give you the halved recipe.

Healthy oat cookies

I didn’t even imagined that they can be so popular 🙂 I just wanted to bake some cookies 🙂 But unexpectedly my coworker asked for the recipe and one guy (who also tasted these cookies) even a few times repeated that they are really good 🙂 What could I want more? Only that you tried them 🙂 It’s really easy but so good!

Honey-Peach Ice Cream

Honey-Peach Ice Cream

These ice creams are very creamy, with a mild taste of honey and peach. Just we all agreed that next time I will puree all peaches, because those that I chopped became like little ice cristals and were very very cold ? And in the photo you can see what conditions I have almost all the time photographing my creations 😀

Gingerbread cookies

This gingerbread cookies I baked two times and the second time I made them thinner – these were much more better 😉 It’s sad that ducks, elephants, mice and butterflies didn’t survived till photo session.. By the way, I don’t know why but butterflies were most popular 🙂 Maybe because they were very colourful… This is the last entry about Christmas baking. So what now? Will be waiting for the spring? 🙂
