Add enough meat to make sure you taste the flavor of the meat and the corn tortilla. Roll the tortilla up and put toothpick through the middle of the flauta to hold in place.

You will also need two 7 inch (18cm) sponge tins at least 11/2 inches (4cm) deep, greased and the bases lined with greaseproof paper or silicone paper. In a medium-­‐sized mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar together until you get a pale, fluffy mixture that drops off the spoon easily. Then in a separate jug or bowl, beat the eggs thoroughly together, then add them a little at a time, beating well after each addition. When the eggs have been incorporated, take a metal tablespoon. Have the flour in a sieve resting on a plate, then lift the sieve high above the bowl and sift about a quarter of it on the mixture -­‐ then replace the sieve on the plate and lightly and gently fold the flour into the mixture (if you beat the flour in, you`ll lose some of the precious air). Then repeat this until all the flour is incorporated: lifting the sieve up high above the bowl will ensure the flour gets a good airing before it reaches the mixture. Now the flour has been added you should have a mixture that will drop off the spoon easily when you tap it on the side of the bowl. If not, add some hot water, one or two teaspoonfuls or if you`re using medium eggs you may need a tablespoonful more. Now divide the mixture equally between the prepared tins. Place them on the centre shelf of the oven, and they`ll take about 25-­‐30 minutes to cook. When they are cooked, the centres will feel springy when lightly touched with a little fingertip and no imprint remains. When they`re cooked, remove them from then oven, then after about 1 minute turn them out on to a wire cooling tray, loosening them around the edges with a palette knife first. Then carefully peel off the base papers and leave the cakes to cool completely before sandwiching them together with jam and sifting a little icing sugar over the surface. Note: For an 8 inch (20 cm) sponge cake, use 6 oz (175g) of each ingredient and 3 eggs. 23 Christmas borscht Ingredients: 1 large Spanish (yellow) onion 1 large bulb of garlic 1-­‐2 very big carrots (I prefer 2) 1-­‐2 very large stalks of celery (1 prefer 2) 4-­‐14 oz cans of vegetable broth 2-­‐12 oz cans beet-­‐Drain the juice and save it.

I have tried both and both are good I feel that apple cider vinger tastes better). If the borscht is too thick, you can Keats add extra can of eater prior to simmering or anything during he simmering process. It's really a preference thing. You want a thicker borscht, don't add it.

Stir the salt into the flour. Slowly stir in the cold water, adding as much as is necessary to form smooth dough. Don't add more water than is necessary. Knead the dough into a smooth ball. Cover the dough and let it rest for at least 30 minutes. 2. While the dough is resting, prepare the filling ingredients. Add the soy sauce, salt, rice wine and white pepper to the meat, stirring in only one direction. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring in the same direction, and mix well. 3. To make the dumpling dough: knead the dough until it forms a smooth ball. Divide the dough into 60 pieces. Roll each piece out into a circle about 3 inches in diameter. 4. Place a small portion (about 1 level tablespoon) of the filling into the middle of each wrapper. Wet the edges of the dumpling with water. Fold the dough over the filling into a half moon shape and pinch the edges to seal. Continue with the remainder of the dumplings. 5) To cook, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add half the dumplings, giving them a gentle stir so they don't stick together. Bring the water to a boil, and add 1/2 cup of cold water. Cover and repeat. When the dumplings come to a boil for a third time, they are ready. Drain and remove. If desired, they can be pan-­‐fried at this point. 29
