1. Title: Walnut Christmas Candy
Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Bakery-shop, Desserts


      1 c  Butter
      1 c  Sugar
      1 tb White Corn Syrup
      3 tb Water
  1 1/2 c  Chopped Walnuts
      4    Hershey Bars (Plain)

  Butter a 9" square pan. Melt butter in 2 quart saucepan; gradually stir in
  sugar. Add syrup and water. Cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally,
  until mixture reaches 290? on a candy thermometer. Add 1 cup walnuts, and
  cook 3 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Pour into pan. When it is set,
  but not cool, crumble 2 Hershey bars on top and spread them to cover.
  Sprinkle with 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts. Turn onto waxed paper and repeat
  procedure with remaining 2 Hershey bars and 1/4 cup nuts. When cold, break
  into small pieces. If toffee gets too cold to melt Hersheys, melt them over
  warm water, but it works best if chocolate is melted right on toffee.

2. Walnut Roquefort Shortbread Recipe

Overwhelming in a good way

From, "From Portlandís Palate ... A Collection of Recipes from the City of Roses," published in cooperation with your Daily InBox newsletter.


1-1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

1 cup walnut pieces

1/2 pound Roquefort cheese, chilled and crumbled

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 cube), chilled and cut into small pieces

2 egg yolks

2 teaspoons freshly-ground pepper TO PREPARE:

In a food processor, combine flour, walnuts, cheese, butter, yolks and pepper.  Process until ball of dough forms.  Divide dough in half.  On a lightly floured surface, form each piece into a 1-1/2 inch diameter cylinder.  Wrap cylinders in waxed paper and chill until firm, at least 4 hours.  (Can be made ahead and refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen for 1 month.)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Remove dough from refrigerator and cut into 1/2-inch rounds. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown.  Turn baking sheet once halfway through baking time.

When done, place rounds on paper towels to cool.  Serve warm or at room temperature.

NOTE:  If using frozen dough, bring to room temperature before baking.
