Desserts recipes

  • A light but sumptuous dessert - perfect in the middle of the holiday season! This dish is simple, tasty, sweet and tangy, and it is also quite pretty.

  • A hedgehog is a chocolate-based, no-bake "cake", or slice that usually uses plain sweet biscuits (cookies) such as shortbread. It often has nuts as well. I've gone for a minimalist chocolate extravaganza but feel free to add nuts if you like.

  • "If you've always been a bit disappointed by icy semifreddo and other machine-free frozen desserts, I feel your pain. But trust me - even after sitting in the freezer for 24 hours, this baby is creamy, soft, and seriously good - not an icicle in sight. Delicious as a dessert or on its own, it would also be brilliant in all those places that ice cream works so well. Yum. The only thing is that it is quite strongly honey-flavored, which is great in most cases, but could be a little overpowering as an accompaniment to something like passionfruit souffle." -Jules Clancy

  • These cookies with a trace of lemony-flavored basil are perfect for tea parties and special gifts. Garnish a platter of them with fresh basil sprigs, unless you’d like to keep your guests guessing about the secret ingredient.

  • If you enjoy the combination of chocolate and citrus, you'll love these cookies.

  • Springtime bliss.

  • “Most people have had avocado in a salty and/or spicy format, or at least as an accompaniment to something that is not primarily sweet. If you like avocado, however, you will really enjoy this ice cream. Its natural oil gives the ice cream a very smooth and silk mouth feel, and the lime juice heightens its flavor. Although it may taste too sweet before freezing in the ice cream maker, it will be just right when it’s done.” –Fany Gerson, author of My Sweet Mexico

  • “PastureLand's Chef Bret’s ‘Grandmother’s Sour Cream Orange Poundcake’ is too good to resist, and we could not keep from nibbling before it cooled! The warm, sweet and orangey aroma filled the kitchen, attracting the neighbors (we had the window open on one of the first warm days).”– PastureLand Co-op

  • Pears and cardamon, when baked together, have a magical quality. Makes four 4-inch cakes or one 8-inch cake.

  • Cinnamon is the standard spice for topping a crumb coffee cake. This coffee cake keeps the crumb topping and spices it up a little more by using some of the same flavors that are found in chai, including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and allspice. These spices really help to make the coffee cake memorable - and they also make you want to come back for a second slice.
