This is going to be a short issue with just recipes. I have been working on compiling our family cookbook, a project I put on hold a year ago when we made the move to New England. I got an wonderful email from Carol Ann this month. She wrote to me regarding finding my site because of a search for Miss Hullings restaurant. Some of you may remember I've had several requests for a Lemon Cake made by that restaurant. Carol has a forum over at Better Homes and Gardens where recipes and restaurants from St. Louis just happen to be the topic. I did find some Miss Hullings recipes which I will share with you, but alas, no cake recipe. Most of the recipes today will be restaurant or famous chef recipes. I hope you don't mind the change!

Flaky pastry wrapped around barely-melted chocolate and toasted almonds. Sinful.

1/4 lbs. butter - melted, clarified
4 sheets filo dough
1/3 C. ground almonds
1 t. cinnamon
2 t. sugar
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate - coarsely chopped
3/4 C. almonds - toasted, slivered

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Melt and clarify butter. Set aside. Have filo sheets unrolled and covered with a damp cloth.

Mix ground almonds, cinnamon and sugar together. In another small bowl, combine chopped chocolate and toasted almonds.

Lay out one sheet of filo. Brush generously with melted butter. Sprinkle on some of the ground almond mixture. Lay another filo sheet on top. Brush with butter and proceed as with the first sheet. Once on top layer, brush again with butter. Place chocolate/almond mixture on the lower third of the stacked filo sheets. Lift the pastry gently over the chocolate to cover it. Fold in the left and right edges of the filo about 2 inches towards the center. Roll from the bottom in jellyroll fashion. Place seam side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 35-40 minutes until lightly browned.

Let cool before slicing. Use a serrated knife. Dust with icing sugar before serving, if desired. Cool thoroughly. The melted chocolate can burn.
