Buttery Croissants, Almond or Plain


Besides their signature flaky layers, croissants are best known for their buttery taste. The chilled butter worked into the dough separates it from a basic bread and forms the layers many of us have come to appreciate. These Almond and Plain Croissants were inspired from a local pastry shop that makes some of the best croissants I've enjoyed in Los Angeles. The almond paste and glaze permeate the croissant with a delicious almond flavor and each buttery layer is thoroughly enjoyed with no need for additional condiments. Of course, if you want a croissant absent the sweetness, simply remove the almond paste and glaze from the mix. Enjoy!!

Tarte Tatin


Years ago I met a wonderful French chef who baked some of the tastiest desserts, with Tarte Tatin being among my favorites. Forming the method from memory, coupled with my experience in classic southern pies, I shaped the dessert I thoroughly enjoyed. The caramelized apples flipped perfectly onto the golden crust and formed beautifully along the top of the apple tart. The dessert was just as delightful as I remembered and welcomed quite warmly by friends. Enjoy!!

Almond Butter Truffles


A cook rarely complains when any particular dessert is incredibly easy to make, especially with a party on the horizon. These Almond Butter Truffles are a simple morsel of confection offering up what their name suggests: almond butter pressed into a rich chocolate. Served chilled, these truffles are lightly sweetened mouthfuls for dinner guest enjoyment. Enjoy!!

Peach Cobbler


Sometimes on those warm, sunny days, you just don't want to share your afternoon treat with anyone. Paired with a refreshing iced tea, an individually portioned Peach Cobbler will satiate any summer afternoon! Each cobbler combines fresh peaches with a cloud of buttery cake, satisfying when served warmed or chilled. Why not brighten the afternoon with a portion for one; what began as yours, can remain yours! Enjoy!!

Peanut Butter Fudge


Now here's a simple treat that will take minutes to make and only seconds to finish. Peanut Butter Fudge is the disappearing dessert, combing popular flavors, packaged in its seducing fudge format. I made this particular recipe to use up a few ingredients and simplify down from all of the baking I have a tendency to do. The deliciously smooth fudge is something many learn in their pre-teens, and it remains just as delicious now as it was then! Enjoy!!
