The holiday season is all about coming together, isn’t it?
Whether it’s gathering around the table for a hearty meal or huddling in the kitchen to whip up something sweet, it’s the moments we share with loved ones that make this time of year truly magical.
In a world that’s constantly evolving, our holiday traditions can also take on new shapes and flavors.
I love exploring creative and contemporary twists on classic dishes, and that’s why I’m happy to introduce you to a modern Christmas favorite – Candy Cane Puff Pastry.
The holiday season has a way of bringing out the magic in even the simplest of things, and that’s what I adore about it.
Amidst the twinkling lights, the crisp winter air, and the laughter of friends and family, I find myself drawn to the kitchen, eager to whip up something special.
This recipe is a nod to the traditions that have been passed down through generations in my family. It’s a testament to the beauty of simplicity, where the flakiness of puff pastry and the sweetness of candy canes unite in perfect harmony.
For me, the holidays have always been about creating memories with those I hold dear, and this delightful pastry embodies that spirit.
It’s a recipe that brings generations together, as we twist and bake our way into each other’s hearts.
Raspberries are traditionally a summer fruit, but for our family we have always had raspberry bushes and have frozen the berries to use up in winter.
They remind me of picking raspberries with my Grandmother and parents so I love to use them in recipes when we are all together.
You can also use strawberries if that is more your “jam” – see what I did there? Ha!
Can I use pre-made jam?
If fresh raspberries are hard to find, frozen will do as well. You just may have to let them simmer a bit more to remove the extra moisture.
And of course you can save time and use jarred raspberry jam.
