Remember those thumbprint cookies your grandma use to make? They were the perfect spot-of-jam delivery system. These little darlings are no different. Well, a little different…
There’s a bit of France in these cookies, which evoke all the familiar flavors of the traditional pain d’epice bread (that’s just fancy for “spice bread”) in a far more festive form.
Pity the pilgrims. They hadn’t yet conjured this cranberry cosmo, which is a cinch to make and ensures Thanksgiving is a lot more tolerable. Sure beats mead.
A retro classic with a velvety coconut custard buried beneath billows of sweet, luscious, airy meringue and cushioned by a tender, flaky, buttery lard crust. You’re welcome.
This stunning Southern belle and its dozen tiers—yup, 12—is astonishingly easy peasy to make thanks to a savvy cake-baking tactic.
Flecks of brilliant orange and green bejewel this not-so-common quick bread, but what adds a royal je ne sais quoi is the robust bursts of candied ginger.
This classy little number shamelessly flaunts its herbal notes, making it as suave and cosmopolitan as far more complicated, not to mention classic, cocktails.
A tisane is essentially an infusion of herbs, flowers, or leaves, much like herbal tea. Here, take a sip of soothing rosemary and sweet, sweet honey and tell us it’s not like an instant spa treatment.
This madcap Italian nightcap swirls together vodka, Prosecco, and lemon sorbet to ridiculously satiating, giggle-inducing effect.
This caffeinated incarnation of a classic chocolate cake comprises cocoa-y layers and fudgy ganache that take their jolt from a cup of joe.
Taken neat, on the rocks, or with a stealth shot of tequila, we think you’ll find no fault with this drink that’s designed for the dog days of summer.
The unofficial Spanish summer sipper. Just as much a classic as that other wine-based libation from Spain, Tinto de Verano is the cocktail the Spanish keep all to themselves.
Meet the Queen of Tarts, with a throne of crushed cookies, a cloak of ever-so-slightly sweetened mascarpone, and a tiara of sliced strawberries.
Nothing slakes thirst, quells worries, and comes together with ease quite like Southern sweet tea.
