The last few weeks felt like a whirlwind. Instead of slowing down for the holiday season there was too much work, too many things to take care of or prepare, and luckily also many holiday parties. I wanted to give you a few more ideas for homemade holiday treats or gifts, but I never got around trying new things. I relied on old favorites such as the chai sirup, my favorite Christmas muffins, cookies and truffles. For this year, it was all I could squeeze in. Well, there will always be another season and another chance to share more recipes.
For now I want to wish a very happy new year. May it be filled with joy, health and peace. And if you're looking for some last minute ideas for easy appetizers for your New Years's party, I finally have something for you. Very easy to do and always a big hit at parties.
Twisted prosciutto strips
- your favorite home-made or store-bought pizza dough, enough so it can be rolled into a rectangle that fills a baking tray
- about 120-150g/ 4-5oz. prosciutto (or other high quality raw ham of your choice)
Preheat oven to 350°F/180°F.
Roll the (raw) dough into a rectangle about the size of a baking tray, slice it in half
Cover one half with very thin prosciutto slices, they may overlap.
Then place other half of the dough on top.
With a sharp knife slive the dough into strips, about 1cm/0.5 inch wide. Twist each strip and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes, let cool.
Enjoy and have a happy, delicious New Year!
