Scooped: Roasted Apricot and Almond Ice Cream

Scooped Max Falkowitz 8 comments

The perfect thing to do with less than perfect apricots. The ice cream gets a double dose of almonds: some chopped up into the final scoop, but also some steeped into cream, which adds a deep, nutty flavor to the base. More

These sweet coils are inspired by the traditional Moroccan pastry M'hanncha, or snake cake, in which phyllo pastry is stuffed with a spiced nut mixture. Here, almonds take center stage. More

Toasted Almond and Strawberry Friands

Very Small Anna Anna Markow 4 comments

Friands are incredibly simple, easy cakelets that keep well in both baked and unbaked forms. A perfect moist foil for a cup of tea or coffee, they're closely related to financiers and madeleines and are very easy to adapt to any taste. More

Bake the Book: Almond Crunchies

Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

Almond crunchies from The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook are a cross between biscotti and meringue cookies, flavored with aniseed and cardamom. Thickly whipped eggs give them an addictively crunchy, chewy texture that shatters and melts in your mouth. More

Let Them Eat: Strawberry Almond Cheesecake

Let Them Eat... Stephanie Stiavetti Post a comment

This strawberry cheesecake is tall and moist, serving up the middle ground between uber-rich and feather light. A whisper of almond flavoring and a simple almond-flour crust round out the berries' assertive personality, making for a great balance of fruity and nutty. More

Cookie Monster: Chocolate Dipped Almond Pretzel Cookies

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

My rule of the day: It's more fun to eat non pretzel-y things in pretzel-y shapes. Of course these almond butter cookies dipped in dark chocolate taste pretty darn good either way. More

Cookie Monster: Almond Cherry Croquants

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

I first started reading my mother's dog-eared issues of Gourmet magazine not for the recipes, but for the travel pieces. I still unapologetically devour books that fall under the category "armchair travel," no matter how cliché the image of an urbanite curled up on a rainy day, reading Peter Mayle, may seem. More

Bake the Book: Linzer Blitz Torte

Caroline Russock Post a comment

Alice Medrich, author of Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts, realizes that the Lizner Torte isn't all about the lattice. She's simplified this Austrian classic by making a rich, almond-based dough that comes together in the food processor and never once necessitates the use of a rolling pin. More

Cookie Monster: Salty Mixed Nut Cookies

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

I love the combination of salty and sweet flavors. When I take a bite of something like a chocolate-covered pretzel, my head kind of explodes. I momentarily blackout and all I can think is YUM. In fact I blame a bag of salted caramels for why I didn't get the movie Momento. More

Cookie Monster: Almond Cherry Quinoa Cookies

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

I remember the first time I had quinoa because it appeared, in all places, in my college dining hall. When I asked a woman who worked there if the quin-o-a was vegetarian (which I was at the time) she laughed in my face. More
