I’ll never forget the first time I saw my mother open up a can of “cranberry sauce” and listened to it blurbity-slurp out of the can, and jiggle like jello.
Who wants to eat something that looks like the can it came out of? (I hadn’t met SPAM yet)
So now any time I hear cranberries that is what I think of, and cringe.
Today’s TWD is Not Just for Thanksgiving Cranberry (cringe) Shortbread Cake, and Jessica of A Singleton in the Kitchen picked it for us.
Fortunately for me, you can use different fruit, so I sliced my apples thin and caramelized them.
Someone else suggested, that instead of trying to roll out a perfect circle of dough to just fit in the bottom of your pan, and a second perfect circle to fit over top of the filling, to freeze the dough and grate it.
Brilliant I say.
And absolutely delicious.
I could just eat the dough.
Okay, I did eat some of the dough.
