When I was a child I spent several years in Puglia on holiday and Taralli (bagels) were my favorite snacks. Only recently I had the opportunity to taste them again, then I decided to try to make them at home. After several attempts, I found my perfect recipe: I replaced a portion of flour with potato starch to give more crispness. Tasty by themselves, perfect with a glass of Prosecco.
Simple ingredients, but do not under-estimate the power of butter, sugar and chocolate. Here, white chocolate, sweet and buttery for a delightful taste, especially together with tangy dried cranberries. I always recommend to chill the dough before baking, to have soft and chewy cookies. What can I say? To try.
I love cookies, every cookie, but Canestrelli are the ones I prefer. Traditional Ligurian cookies with a typical flower shape, Canestrelly are delicious, friable and buttery. But…….who does not know Canestrelli? Perfect treat for breakfast, delicious with a cup of tea or simply if you want something tasty and gorgeous.
Potatoes buns are beloved because of their lightness. The recipe is very easy to execute and loaves are fluffy and full of flavor, totally delicious, and with fresh, chopped rosemary in the dough, they are fabulous. These loaves are easy enough to make everyday but special enough to serve to friends and guests.
Crunchy cookies. The combination of heavy cream with the toasted sesame seeds makes the taste of these cookies unexpected and wonderful. Generally, sesame seeds generally are used to coat cookies, while here, they are in the dough. That’s the reason why the cookies are very, very tasty and luscious. Perfect for breakfast, for a tea break, or any moment during the day, expecially in Christmas holidays. To taste and enjoy.
Les Macarons, so famous and with a big reputation. What are Macarons? They are meringue cookies sandwiched together, with the most tasteful fillings. Only just a few ingredients to make the perfect cookie. They are not so complicated to make, they are made with Italian Meringue, but some steps have to be very precise and accurate. Even if you need several attempts to get the perfect Macarons, I suggest you, once in your life, to try. Being the second attempt, to make things a little bit easier, they are filled with raspberry jam. Absolutely perfect.
Only a few ingredients to make these cookies delicious. These classic cookies are downright irresistible, perfect for choco-vanilla lovers. They are among the most delicious cookies I’ve had the pleasure to taste. A nice gift idea and for sure, a must make for cookies fan.
I love baking and I love making bread, trying to spend as much time as possible in this hobby. Pumpkin is generally used in sweet cake loaf or in soups. I decided to make a savoury bread, with a beautifully warm colour, perfect for brunch or for breakfast, slapped with really good butter. The pumpkin does not make the bread particularly sweet. It is a loaf we were delighted with, infact there were only crumbs left after the brunch Try and let me know.
Cookies, cookies and cookies. These red velvet cookies are my husband’s favorite ones, chocolatey with a perfect soft texture. I am so happy whenever a recipe turns out really well. They melt in your mouth, but the secret of the recipe is the baking time. The cookies appear undercooked and too soft, but will firm up as they set. Impressive, simple and delicious.
Cookies, cookies and cookies. I found out the pleasure of making cookies. Quick to make and perfect for any time in a day, breakfast, snack or just when you want to taste something small and tasty. These ones, the first of a series that you will find on the blog, are made with a chocolate sablé (shortcrust pastry) and a vanilla sablé. It ‘s true, they are a bit long to prepare, ( I suggest to refrigerate the dough each step) but the wait is worth. Delicious plain, but filled with Nutella, they will be even more delicious and gorgeous.
