  • Knot Cookie

    Knot Cookies

    by

    Traditionally these Italian cookies are fried but this version is baked. Less mess, less clean up and a bit healthier, too! What more could you ask for?
  • Ginger Molasses Cookie

    Ginger Molasses Cookies

    by

    These ginger molasses cookies are highly addictive. Sugar coated with rich spicy flavor and a soft and chewy texture make these cookies hard to resist. For added crunch roll the cookies in Turbinado sugar instead of granulated sugar.
  • Vanila Pastry Cream - 1

    Vanilla Pastry Cream

    by

    This Pastry Cream is a basic recipe that can easily be adapted and used in a number of different ways. Try it as filling for doughnuts, a base for fruit pies, stuffing for cream puffs or even just served topped with a mound of berries! You can also quickly create different flavors by adding spices or citrus zest to the milk before cooking. This recipe is gluten free because of the use of potato starch and rice flour but if those are not available you can substitute corn starch and pastry flour respectively.
  • Double Chocolate Chunk Cookie

    Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

    by

    The double chocolate chip cookie is a cookie for chocolate lovers. The perfect way to end a long work week is with a rich, decadent double chocolate cookie and an ice cold glass of milk. There is no better way to unwind from a hectic week and start your relaxing weekend.
  • Creme Fraiche Cream Cheese Frosting

    Crème Fraiche-Spiked Cream Cheese Frosting / Filling

    by

    This is a twist on a classic cream cheese frosting/filling. With the addition of crème fraiche you get an extra tangy frosting and the addition of heavy cream lightens up the usually heavy frosting. Get creative and substitute half of the cream cheese for goat cheese to complement a carrot cake or red velvet cake.
  • Italian Meringue Buttercream

    Italian Meringue Buttercream

    by

    This buttercream tastes great and is so versatile for decorating and covering cakes. Italian meringue buttercream is perfect for frosting wedding cakes because it’s made with egg whites only and no egg yolks so it ends up a shiny white color. It’s also ideal for piping and decorating work since it holds its shape and has few air bubbles. Use to frost a wedding cake, frost a cupcake, pipe buttercream flowers or pipe scrollwork on the side of a cake.
  • Guinness Fruit Cake

    Guinness Fruit Cake

    by

    This isn’t the typical American fruit cake. Made from a mixture of dried fruit soaked usually in sherry, I’ve used orange juice in this one so the sherry doesn’t overpower the Guinness. The cake gets better with a few weeks age for the flavors to develop. It’s a great one for celebrations and Christmas so guests can take a piece home with them and enjoy when they like!
  • Classic Fudge Frosting

    Classic Fudge Frosting

    by

    One taste of classic fudge frosting on yellow cake will take you right back to your childhood. This recipe is easy to make, and with its smooth velvety texture and touch of espresso powder to cut the sweetness, it will be your go-to frosting for years to come. Classic fudge frosting is perfect for frosting you favorite cake, cupcakes, topping brownies or in a sandwich cookie.
  • Classic Carrot Cake-2

    Carrot Cake

    by

    You either love it or you hate it but carrot cake is never going out of style. One bite of this cake just might win you over if you are not a fan of carrot cake. It’s rich, moist, and full of great flavor. When covered with a creamy goat cheese frosting or traditional cream cheese frosting it is hard to resist. Applesauce can be substituted for pineapple and if you are allergic to walnuts they can be omitted from the recipe.
  • Chocolate Mousse

    Chocolate Mousse

    by

    Chocolate mousse… could there be anything more decadent and satisfying? We don’t think so! Serve the chocolate mousse as it is, add a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream or use it to fill a cake.
  • Chocolate Ganache

    Chocolate Ganache

    by

    Chocolate ganache can be used as a filling, frosting or glaze. It can also be used as a chocolate truffle base, truffle filling or a filling in a tart. Because this recipe has only 3 ingredients, use good quality chocolate. Ganache is a staple in every Pastry Chefs kitchen!
  • Mint Almonds

    Mint Almonds

    by

    This is my alternative to the “after dinner mint” where roasted almonds are coated in a sweet, minty powder. The almonds and mint together are so morish, you’ll find it hard to stop at one. Great with coffee or just to snack on!
