The Feast of St. Nicholas

Today, December 6th, is the Feast of St. Nicholas.  In the region around the Swiss city of Basel where I once lived, this festival is celebrated with special bread people called Grättimänner.  Every year since I returned to New Zealand I've wanted to make them, but kneading the bread was a bit much.  This year, with our cool new Kenwood Chef beater, it felt a lot more do-able :-)


(Yup, that's me with the inevitable 'to-do' list on my lap...)


They look a bit munted, and they came out a bit dry (maybe I baked them too long?), but I'm still really pleased with them :-)
