Candied Cherry and Almond Biscotti

Biscotti – the cookie that feels so wrong as you make it: it goes against every typical cookie recipe, because you bake it, slice it and then bake it again, to the point where it’s a cookie rock. But that’s what coffee is for. To tenderize that cookie rock so that you can savor the sweet delicate flavor of it.


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie

It’s a gooey in the center, crusted on top cookie in a flaky pie crust. What more could anyone want? Grab a glass of milk and get baking.


Easy Homemade Mustard

This isn’t regular mustard. Tangy with herbs, it is perfect for hot dogs or a sophisticated meal. Bring to the next barbecue as a gourmet gift for your host.

Glazed Aebleskivers

Glazed Aebleskivers

This Danish dessert is a cross between pancakes and donut holes that are baked in a special pan and doused with sweet glaze.

Lemon Blueberry Tarts

Lemon Blueberry Tarts

You can make these by cutting out rounds of pie crust with a cookie cutter, and placing them into a muffin tin.
