Now that the holidays are long gone, it’s time to start soothing the nerves as we settle into the depressing stretch of winter.  

What to do, what to do…


Eat, clearly.


Here are some gluten-free red bean (adzuki!) squares.  The filling is a paste of red bean and sugar (I used jaggery (Indian molasses) for jollies) and the crust and topping are the same: a mix of ground almonds, rice flour, sugar, and butter.  While it is still a treat, the fibrous red beans add virtuousness and a shade of exoticism to an otherwise glum time of year.
