homemade gingerbread calisson: Before you pass the recipe for these delicious homemade gingerbread calisson, I tell you my little story with the calissons. The first and only time owhere I ate calissons from Aix, was when I left for Strasbourg for my Magister studies in chemistry, I remember that I arrived there in the middle of the Christmas holidays, and one of my colleagues went there. time offered me a box of calissons, it must be said that it was the first time that I received a present at Christmas, because at home we do not celebrate it. I couldn’t say no, especially not for a box of cakes that I’ve never tasted, hmm.

The taste stayed in my mouth to this day, And I have to thank this time Lunetoiles who sent me a while ago, a nice gift box with calissons, containing a book with lots of recipes variety of sweet and savory calissons » Homemade Calissons sweets & aperitifs” by José Maréchal, 4 cookie cutters of different sizes, a spatula, and a mini rolling pin. It doesn’t stop there, but she also sent me candied fruits, such as candied melon, candied kiwi, candied kumquats,….the list is long to name everything. I can’t find candied fruits here at home.

The most important thing is that these gifts from Lunetoiles allowed me to make calissons to suit all tastes, and above all, to make home-made calissons from Aix. Besides, since my daughter ate it, now she keeps asking for calissons, and what’s more, she’s the one who chooses the recipe from the photos in the book, before she asked for arayeches a lot.

One important thing that I must tell you, I don’t use unleavened sheets to make my calissons, I use rice sheets instead, I haven’t come across good quality rice sheets yet because they are a little thick, which makes making pieces of calissons a little hard, and the other thing, I don’t know what the unleavened sheets are called in English to buy them, lol.

We now move on to the recipe for these homemade gingerbread calissons, which are super good, and I’m sure you’ve already come across, for my part, I made these delights with homemade gingerbread, because here in England I can’t find gingerbread.
