Stack them up

Give one as a gift, or better yet, make two for you, one for now and one for the freezer. Think of this as one big flat biscotti, with a similar flavor, but the dough is pressed into a single flat sheet that can then be broken up into pieces. Cornmeal-lemon sheet cookie serves 4 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 3/4 cup fine ground yellow cornmeal 1 t anise seeds 1/4 t baking powder sea salt 3 T unsalted butter 1 large egg, plus 1 egg white,...

COFFEE SOUP

I think this old-fashioned recipe should be the next big thing. It does have some rather odd ingredients like butter, sugar, coffee, and crackers, but I just tried it again and it was delish!

You Gotta Ricotta Cake

This cake is both elegant enough for company and easy enough for a weeknight. I think the secret to making this cake (or cookie) great is to mix the ricotta into the wet ingredients really well, that’s what makes it light.
