The Christmas holiday brings about a great time of year. I really enjoy it because it allows me to spend a lot of time with family and friends and it’s a perfect time for baking and making food to share with others. Over the past few years I’ve made croissants and palmiers and kouign-amann. This year I wanted to make something different. Having spent the past several months in New York, I’ve been exposed to a lot of great food. From a business perspective, food service is ultra-competitive and everyone has to keep coming up with ideas to stand out. One place that I enjoyed going to is ‘wichcraft, an affordable gourmet sandwich shop opened as part of Tom Colicchio’s company which owns Craft, the famous restaurant. I particularly enjoyed eating their cream’wiches which are just small cookies put together and filled with cream to make a sandwich. After eating more than I probably should have, I decided that this year I would try and make them myself to share with family. Lucky for me, the ‘wichcraft blog had the recipes for both the chocolate and peanut butter variety. I made both, but only remembered to take pictures of the chocolate ones. I had fun, mixing and matching the fillings to add variety. I’ve posted some pictures below.
