O Christmas tree..O Christmas Tree……
My favorite things..for Christmas and the Holidays are spending countless hours in a crowded kitchen filled with food and family and friends… cooking up delicious memories..some old..some new
And here is one of my favorite easy appetizer recipes from the Gourmand World Award Winning book The Basic Art of Italian Cooking: Holidays and Special Occasions-second edition

Spinach & Shrimp Turnovers
- 20 large spinach leaves
- 18 shrimp (steamed) cleaned, deveined, peeled
- ¹⁄8 cup butter (unsalted & softened)
- 1 tsp capers
- 2 anchovy fillets packed in oil
Wash spinach leaves and cook in boiling water for 30 seconds, drain, dry well and leave in a colander to drain. Chop anchovies and capers together. Place in a bowl the butter, chopped capers and anchovies. Blend together with wooden spoon. Separate the spinach leaves. On a plate fold out one leaf at a time and place a small about 1 tsp of butter mixture topped with some shrimp pieces. Fold leaf over so you have a sack or turnover.
Place in refrigerator till time to serve.
