Cold Christmas Cake

Lita, the cook in CHRISTMAS AT GREY SAGE, was of Hopi Indian descent. This was an ancestral recipe for Christmas cake. Lucky for us, we don’t have to do what the Indians did – make the cake with more primitive ingredients, wrap it in leaves, and cool it in the icy creek water. They were lucky if the bears didn’t get it. But this more modern version is closer to candy than cake, and oh so good!
