'savory sweets' on Serious Eats
I'm going to be honest with you. Straight up blunt, no-holds-barred, the-truth-hurts honest. We, the pastry chefs of the world, think you're boring. Well, most of us do. Those of us who do this because of our uninhibited creativity and our interest in pushing the boundaries of what you can eat for dessert hate nothing more than to be stuck endlessly making the same tired, outdated desserts. Yes, I'm talking to you, girl who always orders the molten chocolate cake, and dude who can't resist apple pie à la mode, and friends who ooh and ah over every soufflé with chocolate sauce.
The recipe for these crackers is inspired by the flavors of bavette cacio e pepe, a pasta dish seasoned with pecorino cheese and black pepper that charmed Edible DIY: Simple, Giftable Recipes to Savor and Share author Lucy Baker. They're buttery, savory with a kick, and make lovely host gifts.
