Here's a holiday recipe that combines the “old world” and the “new world” in a treat that’s perfect for Christmas, New Year’s, next Thanksgiving and even Valentine’s Day: German Chocolate Pecan Bars! A delightful dessert that blends the tastes of a traditionally European chocolate cake with an all-American pecan pie. Delish! Click to see how it's done.
Traditional poppy seed strudel I now make every Christmas to satisfy the German contingent. Notice that the poppy seeds come in mouthfuls, not sprinkles. Poppy seed products (bagels, muffins, etc.) in the US seem merely decorated with poppy seeds. No such trouble here.
