Week 32 | 9.22.2010
I’ve been spending much too much time thinking about homemade graham crackers in the past few days. My dear friend, who can apparently read my mind & mood, invited me to come along to a fire-pit s’more eating event last night. A delicious, toasty & bright evening of meeting new friends and smelling of campfire (and making my pillow smell of campfire…). All this to say I’ve been inspired by meringue, chocolate and a sticky-sweet child’s dessert.
Grahams have yet to happen, but sable breton dough will instead be forming the base of my cakes this week – buttery and versatile for tart shells, cookies or cakes. A bit of scooped, maybe whipped, ganache, some singed Italian meringue and another dessert to enjoy.
Oiy! not quite enough dough for my cakes, here’s another batch:
1/2 scraped vanilla bean
1/2 zested citrus fruit (lemon or orange)
160g softened butter
10g baking powder
