Darrin and Samantha’s daughter Tabitha loves these lollipops so much she often makes them levitate toward her from the kitchen, which is a problem when Mrs. Kravitz, a neighbor, is lurking nearby.
- Yield: 6 Servings
- Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
- 3½ oz walnuts
- 3 large cooked beets (or 4 mediumsized beets)
- 1 log fresh goat cheese
- 1 tbsp orange juice
- Salt and pepper
How to Make It
- Discreetly, so as not to attract the attention of Mrs. Kravitz, who is pretending to trim the hedge, coarsely chop the nuts.
- Peel the beets and cut into cylinders using your special powers, a cylindrical cookie cutter, or a cutter for modeling dough. If you own none of these, cut a wide strip of stiff card, roll it into a cylinder 2 inches in diameter, and use it to make cylinders of beet.
- Hollow out the cylinders using a small spoon (or a melon baller) and set aside.
- Mash the goat cheese, chop the walnuts, and mix together. Add a little orange juice to loosen the mixture, and season with salt and pepper.
- Fill the beet tubes with this mixture, then cut them into slices 1/8–¼-inch thick. Insert lollipop sticks and serve before Mrs. Kravitz falls off her ladder.
