Boysenberry Amandines, using canned berries, make a worthy end to a special dinner when the local in-season fruits have ceased to inspire.
You will also need:
1. A large strainer.
2. 3 mixing bowls.
3. A mixer, standing or hand.
4. Eight 1/2-cup size ramekins.
Making the dessert:
1. Butter the ramekins and put them in the refrigerator while making the batter for the Amandines.
2. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
3. Place a strainer over a mixing bowl and strain the canned berries, reserving the juice that collects in the bowl. Set both the juice and berries aside.
4. Separate the eggs, placing the yolks and whites in two separate mixing bowls.
5. Add the brown sugar to the yolks and mix until they become a shade lighter in color.
6. Beat into the yolk mixture the butter, powdered almonds, cornstarch, vanilla, and nutmeg.
7. In the third bowl, beat the egg whites until they hold firm peaks, then fold them into the yolk and almond batter.
8. Take the ramekins from the refrigerator and divide the batter evenly among them. Place 6 or 7 berries in each ramekin of batter, reserving the rest of the berries and juice.
9. Bake the desserts for 10 minutes, or until they are golden.
10. Remove them from the oven. The Amandines will look underdone. This is OK. They will continue to cook a little out of the oven and regardless, they are supposed to have a softer-than-cake consistency. Let them cool a little … to lukewarm is fine.
11. Just before serving, place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on each dessert and top the scoops of ice cream with some of the reserved berries and juice.

This time of year, we are all looking for that perfect cookie recipe that will get Santa to leave a gift for even the naughtiest of people. These cookies might just be them. The simple, no fail base can be customized to whatever candies or chip combination you desire. I have made these for years and have never been disappointed.
These cookies are sensational. Not only do they look good, but they taste amazing. When baked, the almonds release a light and exotic oil which makes these cookies glow with goodness. These cookies are thin so they are nice and crisp and they complement ginger tea well.
