TWD: Hungarian Shortbread

Ohmygod so much butter. This recipe has 1 pound of butter in it. That's a bit intimidating. Maybe we shouldn't think about it. It's so delicious and simple.

I baked the bottom layer for an initial 15 minutes per the advice of others and used raspberry jam. So delicious.

French Fridays: Coconut Friands

Coconut friands, you were pretty delicious. I love all that coconut taste. And you were so small that I ate a lot of you. I'm not sure that I think of you as more that a mini muffin, but we can call you "friand" to make us both feel elevated.

TWD: Lemon Loaf Cake

My feelings on this one: Good, but would be better with whipped cream or as a base for something. Easy. Fast. Normal ingredients. It wasn't as moist as I would have liked. Not my favorite, but definitely would have been awesome with whipped cream and berries.

TWD: Pizza Rustica

This was way easier and way tastier than I thought it would be. The dough came together perfectly in the food processor.

I used part-skim ricotta and pepperoni as the meat.

It came together fast and beautifully. 

My lattice was a little smaller.

And it didn't brown up as much as I wanted, but it tasted good!

I was a little scared that it was going to be too eggy from the looks of it, but not at all! We're having lunch brought in at work today and I'm sad that I don't get to eat my leftovers! I loved the sweet crust with the spiciness of the pepperoni. This was a winner.
