And then there's fruit bars. I don't know about you, but I seem to go through a lot of these. I buy a great deal of them, but that's because I wouldn't be able to keep up with a certain toddler's hunger for them. These are like homemade fig newtons, but the filling is elderberry-apple sauce. The sauce was basically the leftover pulp from elderberry apple jelly I made. I took the pulp, added sugar, and it made a great healthy filling.
The recipe I used was from Linda Ziedrich's The Joy of Jams, Jellies and Other Sweet Preserves. I guess you could say I've got a lot of joy in my kitchen. And you would be right.
You and you creme fraiche, you're making me hungry! But seriously, I gotta cook up some jelly rolls. What a great idea!ReplyDelete
I'd love to give those fruit bars a try!ReplyDelete
They both look great! The Babylady would love it if I made fruit bars. Well, and a jelly roll for that matter! Yum!ReplyDelete
Sarah - I know! Thank god I'm almost done with it! I've got to do a straight up jelly roll, next.ReplyDelete
Allison - I love them!
Meg - I don't think I shared the jelly roll with the baby. I'm not a nice Mom!
Oh, wow. Rebecca (from Cakewalk)is right. These look like they'd be awesome filled with figs! Love, love, love them!ReplyDelete
Lo - Totally!!ReplyDelete
Did I miss the you posting recipe somewhere for your fig newton shell? I want to gluten-free-ify them!ReplyDelete
Kate - I didn't post it! It is in Linda Ziedrich's Joy of Jams, Jellies, etc. In the fig section. I can't wait to see what you do!ReplyDelete
So what is the recipe for the roll?ReplyDelete
Hi there! I got the jelly roll recipe from Joy of Cooking. I'm sure there are a bunch on the interwebs that could help you, too! Thanks for the visit, JuliaDelete
