  1. Using Leftover Cookie Dough

    Hide

    When scraps of dough get left behind after cookies hit the oven, turn them into a quick and tasty "streusel" topping for other baked goods, says pastry chef Chris Broberg.

    Form the extra raw cookie dough into a ball and freeze. Then, simply grate the frozen dough with a box grater over muffins, coffee cakes, cobblers, or other sweet treats.

    Here's another idea: Instead of freezing the dough, try baking the leftover dough strips then crushing them up to use as a crunchy topping for ice cream sundaes.

  2. Festive Flatbread

    Hide

    Prettily arranged ingredients, add flavor, and turn simple foods into edible works of art. We topped flatbread with sage leaves, sliced onion, tomatillo, and yellow tomato. (Another option is to use only an assortment of herbs.) One batch of dough yields 12 delicate slices, enough to present in a basket at the table. Save time the day of your party by making the bread a couple of days in advance and storing it in an airtight container.

  3. Good Thing

    Sorbet Stripe Cake

    Hide

    Refresh your guests with layer after colorful layer of icy treats. Creating this stacked confection is simpler than making a sundae -- just spoon the slightly softened ice cream into a loaf pan (line the pan with plastic wrap first, and freeze one layer before adding the next). Our stripes, from top, are cantaloupe sorbet, peach frozen yogurt, strawberry ice cream, and raspberry sorbet.

  4. How-To

    Carve a Rack of Lamb

    Hide

    Once the lamb has finished cooking, let it rest for at least 10 minutes (this will allow the juices to redistribute).

    1. Hold Two Rib Bones 

    To slice each rack into chops, hold the ends of two neighboring rib bones upright at one end of the rack.
