White chocolate lemon crinkle cookies

Lemon crinkle cookies………for sure the best cookies ever…… I am addicted to bake cookies, as I have said several times…but these ones are something special. Soft, with a cakey texture ….a texture I haven’t really found in other cookies. It seems to eat a slice of cake……but you are eating a cooky……unbelievable….. Do not forget the perfect combination of flavors: lemon and white chocolate….delicious. Try for your Xmas party: no one will resist.

crostata brownies alle fragole

Strawberries brownies tart

I love tarts and I love brownies …… and after countless attempts I found the perfect recipe for brownies batter. I’m sure each of you has his own recipe for the perfect pastry and brownies batter ….. You can try your favorite recipes for the two doughs, and then assemble the cake, but I recommend you to try mine …. you will not be disappointed. I added one layer of strawberry jam on the bottom and put diced strawberries in the dough …… you know that strawberries and chocolate is the perfect combination. As decoration, I prepared strawberries jellies, but if you want you can omit …… The pie is rich, intense, soft and crunchy…… It can be perfect in case you need a sweet treat this weekend. Let’s go in the kitchen …..

pie di fragole

Strawberries pie

This pie starts with a basic pie crust……which generally includes flour, water and butter in precise proportions. Here, I decided to have a special pastry crust: eggs, and the ratio of water and butter is different from the rule. The original recipe calls for apples, but I decided to use the strawberries, which now can be found all year. The cake is delicious. The best strawberry pie. Served plain, or with a dollop of softly whipped cream. Recipe By Luca Montersino.

fior di fragola

Strawberries flower

When I was a child, in Italy, there was a lollipop called “Strawberry flower”. This dessert reminds me of my childhood I love refreshing desserts and panna cotta: this combination seems perfect for hot season. Even if it may seem complicated because of many ingredients and methods, it is easy to prepare. No baking is required, so it is perfect for summer season.
