My Christmas basket of goodies!
I never got around to
I bought the assortment and have been researching, testing, and photographically documenting each and every item (wrapped and unwrapped).
I've been forcing myself to quickly sample (consume) it all, so I could share the results with you. Yes, in case you hadn't already been made aware (by me), I'm selfless.
(Click the images to see how big the basket is.)
|MY OTHER BASKET.|
|FUNBAR: CHOCOLATE, HAZELNUT...|
NOT A VERY TRADITIONAL-SOUNDING NAME, BUT SO GOOD.
|ROSCO DE VINO Y ALMENDRA|
(WINE AND ALMOND SPANISH SHORTBREAD RING)
|MANTECADO DE ALMENDRA.|
(ANOTHER VERSION OF SPANISH SHORTBREAD, WITH ALMONDS.)
|MANTECADOS SABOR CANELA.|
(LEMON-FLAVORED SPANISH SHORTBREAD.)
|ANOTHER MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH SWEET.|
(I CAN'T REMEMBER WHICH ONE.)
|TRUFADO AL LICOR WHISKEY.|
(TRUFFLE-FILLED TURRÓN FLAVOURED WITH WHISKEY.)
|HOJALDRE IS PUFF PASTRY.|
THIS OBVIOUSLY IS NOT. HOWEVER, IT DID HAVE DELICIOUS FLAKY LAYERS.
|CHOCOLATE-COVERED COCONUT BALLS (BOLAS DE COCO).|
I'M EATING MY SECOND BALL RIGHT NOW.
|THIS IS ALL THAT'S LEFT. WELL, EXCEPT FOR THE PRALINE IN|
GREEN WRAPPER. WHICH SAN GERALDO JUST ATE...
AND THE TRUFADO CRUJIENTE IN BLUE WRAPPER, WHICH I JUST ATE...
OH, AND THE TURRON CRUJIENTE IN FRONT, WHICH I JUST ATE.
|OK. THIS IS WHAT'S LEFT...|
