Buttermilk-Biscuit Shortcakes

A mix of faith, magic, and technique is needed to make biscuits. After using your hands to pull together the dough, you fight through a stage where you feel like scrapping the entire mess, and before you know it, your dough becomes smooth and the oven makes them rise tall and gorgeous. Sweeter than most…

Winter Squash and Molasses Muffins

Although hers are served with a citrus marmalade, she suggests a savory type can be made, and served with a compound butter. I would suggest serving a savory variant with Greek yoghurt. These pancakes work fantastically whether dotted with raspberries, or…

Bobby Flay’s Pancakes

Few adults would seek out this meal for breakfast, but it makes for an excellent breakfast to make over a children’s sleepover. These pancakes are slightly adapted from Bobby Flay’s 2015 “Brunch at Bobby’s.” The effect of chocolate and sugar on a sleep child is a sight to see, and the guests can be hustled…

Chess Pie

Adopted from Julia Reed’s Southern Cookbook, these delectable little bars are a perfect picnic versions of the traditional custard pie. Unlike lemon bars with their iconic lip-puckering citrus, these instead have a blanket of egg-rich custard, laced liberally with vanilla, on top of a delicious crumbly, lightly salted shortbread crust. If buttermilk is unavailable, you…
