So this month of the Canadian Food Experience project, and this month Valerie from a Canadian Foodie challenged us to write about a Xmas tradition. The Canadian Food Experience project brings together food bloggers, from across the country, to share their collective regional and cultural food experiences. When I saw this topic, I knew that I had to write about Trinidad Black Cake aka Rum Cake.
Every once in a while, this lil brain of mine gets overactive thinking of all possible combinations and this is one that came to me while I was making my Christmas cookies this year. I was stuffing them with raspberry jam and I thought that it'd be a great idea to use a filling more exotic - so my spicy guava jam was born.
I must have been crazy when I signed up to participate in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I knew they're be a ton of dessert bloggers who'd blow me out of the water with their creations. Despite that I forged ahead and decided to keep it super simple with a classic sugar cookie with raspberry jam.
