When I was on the internet searching for Imblogc ceramonies, stummbled upon these two recipies. It's all I have for now, but they're both very good. I used them both in the creamony.
Candlemas Crescent Cakes
- 1¼ cups flour
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 cup finely ground almonds
- 3 drops almond extract
- ½ cup butter or margarine, softened
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 egg yolk
In a large mixing bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Add the butter, honey, egg yolk and mix together well. Cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap, and then chill for 1½ to 2 hours in the refrigerator.
When ready, pinch off pieces of the dough (about the size of plums) and shape them into crescents.
Place the crescents on a well-greased cookie sheet and bake in a 350-degree preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes. The recipe yields about one dozen crescent cakes.
Soft Mead (Non-alcohalic honey wine)
- 1 quart water, preferably spring water
- 1 cup honey
- 1 sliced lemon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Boil together all ingredients in a non-metallic pot. While boiling, scrape off the rising layer with a wooden spoon. When no more rises, add the following:
1 pinch of salt
juice of 1/2 lemon
Strain and cool.
