Our recipe tester's grandmother Josephine Rege has been making her version of lemon angel pie for more than 60 years. We updated her recipe, and the result became an instant Martha (and test-kitchen) favorite.
This recipe is one of our Better Basics: 10 New Takes on Family Favorites, see the others.
These delicate little cookies may look as if they came from a French bakery, but the recipe -- also featured on Martha Stewart Living TV -- is actually quite simple. After baking, you need only pour the warm cassis glaze over the bonbons; once they're dry, decorate them with easy-to-make Royal Icing.
This delectable recipe comes from Aubrey Cook, a finalist in the "Martha" show "Best Bakers in America"series. Hints of almond and lemon extract balance the pound cake's buttery flavor, and a sweet maple glaze tops the cake with a marbled pattern.
