Hello, 

As I'm thinking for small food gifts to give to my extended family and neighbour for christmas, this year I want to make nugat. I requires 'azyme bread' as the base, then the nougat mixture, then the azyme bread again. 

From my reasearch, azyme bread can be jewish style. It is like a soda cracker, not what I am looking for. I want the azyme bread - required for nugat - as the bread we receive for cummunion. 

I have this bread available in groceries, but they have the round holes in them (sort of left overs use from priest). So I figured it could try making my own for nougat only (not making my own communion eucharistic bread lol - never ) 

Has any one cooked this type of bread before? (tips, receipes, etc.) 


Or any bake goods ideas to give for the holidays?

Blessings,
I make fruitcakes.  I contend that anyone who does not like fruitcake has never had a decent fruitcake.

fruitcakes, does Panetone count as fruitcake? If so, I’m on board. Nougate? Again if Torrone counts I’m on board. And while i love to cook, neither Panetone nor Torrone are on my list of things i can prepare.

Unless there's more fruit than cake, it's not a fruitcake.  ShopRite actually has a really delicious cranberry panetone, but I refuse to pay more than 4.99 for it.

Torrone sounds like too much stirring to be enjoyable, however you are the boss of making your torrone, your own.
