Today I wanted to share a few recipes I made when my dad and M came to visit last month. I asked my dad for some ideas to bake since I wanted to make two treats to take care of two months of desserts that I make him (I usually ship them but fresh is always best). He picked muffins and scones, so I made some muffins for while they were here and made scones to take home (we ended up freezing some of each to take home). The biscuits I made were for their first dinner here. They were coming straight from the airport at rush hour/dinner time, so I wanted food ready for them. I made sous vide salmon, broccoli, and biscuits.
At first glance, these seem like they might be fussy. They require a food processor, chilling time, and you have to sandwich them together. But, I actually chose this recipe as my first to try from the Dahlia Bakery Cookbook because it could be made in stages, allowing for fun baking, but fun with baby time, too. K took the Fudgelet upstairs when I needed to use the food processor (he still doesn’t like the sound of it, but at least can tolerate the mixer now), but otherwise, everything was easy to make with him around.
