These wholesome treats are made with wheat germ and brown sugar. Fill the cookies with raspberry jam for a burst of fruit flavor (other fruit jams also work), and drizzled chocolate adds an indulgent finish.
The perfect holiday brunch-themed favor: homemade
preserves, a kitchen towel, and a hand-carved breadboard. To wrap the jars, fold each towel diagonally and roll like a bandanna; wrap, then
tuck in the end.
Horizontal slices of rich brownie cake make dramatic stripes in this striking frozen dessert, which features all the fixings of an old-fashioned sundae -- and then some. Two kinds of ice cream -- vanilla and strawberry -- are used as the fillings, along with crunchy peanut butter and crushed raspberries. Everything is layered in a loaf pan before freezing, slicing, and serving -- with whipped cream, sugared peanuts, and cherries on top.
The skins from stone fruit will contribute color and flavor to the jam. But for a smoother mixture, you can start by peeling nectarines: Carve an X in the bottom of each and plunge them into boiling water for 30 seconds, then transfer them to an ice-water bath to stop the cooking; the skins will slip off.
