Mini Dark Chocolate Cake: Just Enough of a Good Thing

Gâteau au Chocolat Fondant de Nathalie is an exquisite, melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate cake that wows everyone who tastes it. It’s such a rich cake, however, that baking a full recipe is just too much. Enter the Mini Gâteau au Chocolat Fondant de Nathalie, a twenty percent recipe that incorporates a tasty addition from one of the many bakers who wrote about this lovely cake back in the early food-blog era.

Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream

Beat the heat with Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream. Intense Vietnamese robusta coffee transforms coffee ice cream into something bold and absolutely delicious. Based on David Lebovitz's wonderful coffee ice cream recipe.
Spiced Lemon-Lime Sorbet

Spiced Lemon-Lime Sorbet Beats the Heat

Beat the heat with this tart and spicy sorbet, a twist on a traditional lemon sorbet. A simple trick gets it oh-so-smooth without the beaten egg white often called for in lemon sorbets. Bring out the ginger and cardamom in the syrup with an overnight rest in the fridge. Use any leftover syrup as a mixer! You’ll be making Spiced Lemon-Lime Sorbet on repeat this summer!
Earl Grey Cookies

Take a Break with Earl Grey Cookies

Delicate and flavorful, these grown-up cookies will complement your tea (or coffee) break beautifully. If you’ve never baked with Earl Grey tea before, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the subtle lemony flavor. Dark chocolate flakes make these richer, but this isn’t a child’s chocolate-chip cookie. These come together in seconds in the food processor, and you can freeze dough you don’t want to use right away, so you’re always ready for a lovely afternoon break.

Spiced Apple Sorbet with Pie Crust Cookies

Spiced Apple Sorbet

Spiced Apple Sorbet packs all of the flavor of apple pie into a refreshing palate cleanser or light dessert. Homemade applesauce creates a perfect texture, and spiced simple syrup brings the flavor (you might find yourself making it for other uses). You can find the optional Pie Crust Cookie recipe in the Wonder & Sundry Recipe Box (subscribe for access).
Halloween Candy Cookies

Frankenstein’s Monster: Halloween Candy Cookies

Happy Halloween! Find yourself with extra Halloween Candy? Make Halloween Candy Cookies! Continuing my tradition of desecrating famous cookie recipes with Peeps, this is a take on Salted Chocolate Chunk Shortbread cookies. I made them with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and sacrificial Peeps (the perpetrators are so not getting invited to Christmas). A video accompanies this, perhaps influenced by a sacrificial Peep or two.
