A couple weeks ago I thought I would try my hand at Linzer Cookies, just in time for Valentines Day. Traditionally made with blackberry jam, I thought I would make mine with homemade Raspberry Thyme Jam, creating what I thought would be an elevated Linzer Cookie. What I did not consider, was that homemade raspberry jam contains a tonne of seeds! While I’m sure there’s some fancy (or super simple, in which case, please share) way to remove seeds from raspberry jam, I lacked the time or motivation to investigate. So off to the market I went to pick up seedless raspberry jam and this glorious homemade jam has instead been enjoyed on toast and homemade scones. A win-win really 😉
Growing up I can count on one hand the number of times I had a Pop Tart. It was only on the insistence of my younger brother that Mom relented and I was introduced to the light and flaky toaster delight. It was a good thing I wasn’t in charge of the grocery shopping, or else like Lorelei and Rory, Pop Tarts would have become a breakfast staple. Inspired by the Gilmore Girls (I’ve been re-visiting the show in preparation for the release of the new season!) I thought it might be fun to try my hand at Homemade Pop Tarts, just in time for back school season.
I am definitely having a stone fruit moment, last week plum cocktails and this week – Peach Cobbler. Truth be told, I’ve been thinking about this recipe since trying my hand at short cakes a couple of months ago, click here for the Strawberry Shortcake recipe. I’m probably the only person on the planet who missed the memo regarding the ease of making short cakes! This recipe uses the same simple short cake recipe spooned on top of delicious, vibrant peaches – easy, peasy and perfect for a weeknight treat!
