I don't know what the weather is like where you are but around here it's winter (and not the nice winter that makes you want to go outside but the kind that makes you want to stay inside wrapped up in a blanket reading a good book) so here is a recipe that will warm you up and will make you feel like you can face anything (even evil abstracts and the cold) :)
This recipe is especially useful if you're trying to use up some chestnut puree from a chestnut&pumpkin pie (I know, I know, the recipe will follow) or you could just buy some and then use the leftovers for the pie :)
3 cups Milk
3 tbsp Chestnut Puree
1/3 Vanilla Pod
1 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
Some Rum or Brandy
Heat the milk and the vanilla over a medium heat and let the vanilla infuse the milk for 10 minutes or so (keep it just below simmering).
Add the chestnut puree, sugar, and spices. Whisk until everything is properly dissolved.
Take the milk off the heat, add a shot of rum and serve in a pretty cup with some lovely Christmas cookies like the ones that Sandra made yesterday (and that I finished already...)
