Just lovely, they look so delicious. Can`t wait to prepare them. I think they would be a great gift----Happy Holidays from Panama City :) Melissa


Are you sure you just didn't decorate some pears? I mean damn, you can barely tell the difference. Is there a shaping technique you used (no, natural ability is not a "technique").


god no - i am pretty useless at this normally... at kindergarden, the other kids would always laugh at my attempts with playdough! I have to say that the prettier ones out of that lot were probably shaped by my Mum, but I tell you, the dough is really easy to form, so even I managed to make some decent ones!


Die Birnen sehen ja wirklich hübsch aus!

Leicht verspätet, aber dennoch herzlich: Fröhliche Weihnachten aus dem Bayerischen Wald!


Just nominated your photo for the Does My Blog Look Good In This contest... very cute!

best of luck


Cute! I'll be making these at some point, though maybe with different nuts. Thanks for the adorable shaping idea!


please note that semolina is actually wheat flour and has a very high gluten content. it is just more coarsely ground than regular baking flour.
