FANOUROPITA (CAKE FOR LOST THINGS)

Fanauropita-recipe-cake-for-lost-things
This simple, easy to whip together cake is made in honor of St. Fanourios, the patron saint of lost things. The day before St. Fanourios day, one can imagine the scent of baking cakes filling kitchens everywhere. They are taken to church the following day, where they are blessed and then shared among the people. A fanouropita can be made any time of year when something is lost such as a ring, a lover or even when a mind is in search of an answer. This cake is ideal during the fasting period, as it has no eggs and no butter.

GALAKTOBOUREKO (CUSTARD PHYLLO PIE)


This is my friend Annette’s recipe. She is very good with desserts. I love the pureness of this pie. Syrupy Greek sweets are always served with a glass of cold water. Greeks have always loved making an outing to a cafe or zaharoplasteio (confectioners) to have a sweet. This is often the type of sweet you will find served after Easter lamb. The butter should be heated and melted to a nice golden caramelly color for good flavor, and while you are making this, you will probably have to put the butter back onto the stove to melt again when it hardens a bit.

BAKLAVA

baklava-recipe
I love this Chanel bag looking thing. It is served, most often with a glass of water, throughout the year and at most celebrations, and on Sundays too. Working with phyllo may take a little getting used to. You need to work quickly so that the pastry doesn’t dry out and gently so that it doesn’t tear. You may find it easier (at least for the first 10 layers) to put a layer onto your work surface, brush with butter, then put another layer of phyllo neatly over that, smoothing it down as you would the sheets of a bed that you were making. Repeat until all your layers are on, then the pile of sheets can be lowered into your dish.

SALTINE TOFFEE BARK RECIPE


Saltines? For dessert? Yes—and how good they are! Crackly crisp, drenched with buttery toffee, blanketed with chocolate, and then sprinkled with coconut and nuts . . . these salty-sweet cookies are absolutely addictive. And since they’re made with a sleeve of saltine crackers and a few other pantry items, they couldn’t be simpler to assemble. The cooled cookies easily break apart into 48 pieces—all the better to swap with!

CAYENNE-DUSTED CHEDDAR COINS RECIPE

Cayenne Dusted Chedda rCoins

Icebox cheese biscuits are among my favorite savory cookies, because of their luxurious richness and because they are deceptively easy to make. Use extra-sharp aged Cheddar cheese to intensify the flavor. For a milder cookie, you can substitute chili powder for the cayenne.
