RECIPE: Starter and Dessert for Christmas Eve

prosperity66December 22, 2007

Monday we will be celebrating the Christmas Eve in Brussels, with my parents.

My mother will cook the meal but I decided to add my personal touch to the Christmas menu (my mother and I don't have the same taste when it's time to cook).

So, I'll prepare the starter and the dessert.

Our Christmas menu will be:

- Spanish appetizers

- Avocado cream

- Lamb and potato gratin

- Baked apples

- Iced Christmas log

Here are my recipes:

Starter: Avocado cream

Ingredients:

2 chopped avocados

2 lemons (juiced)

2 chopped shallots

2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

salt and pepper to taste

Use a fork to mash the avocado

Stir in lemon juice

Add the chopped shallots

Blend all the ingredients

Serve cold in small glasses

Decorate with lemon zest

Dessert: Baked Apples

Ingredients:

10 mashed speculaas

120 g almond paste

40 g dried grapes

2 tablespoon rum

4 tablespoon grounded hazelnuts

1 tablespoon honey

8 apples, washed, cored and halved

Sugar glace

Preheat the oven to 365 degrees F

Combine the mashed speculaas, the almond paste, the dried grapes, rum, hazelnuts and the honey

Put the apples in a baking dish

Garnish with the mixture

Bake for 15 Ã 20 minutes

Serve warm with ice cream and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Bon appetit and very Merry Christmas!
