Lady's Kisses (Baci di Dama)

Nomadic Oven baker Jen Smith says: I first tasted these tiny cookies in Piedmont, a region in Northern Italy where even the tiniest village has a pastry shop filled with chocolaty confections. When I asked about the romantic name, I was told that they look like a plump pair of lips, or if you turn the cookie sideways, like two lovers kissing.

Apple Cardamom Bread Pudding

This bread pudding is very fragrant - the cardamom infuses the bread and is a nice spice on the sweet apples. A great recipe to play around with different heirloom apple varieties, try mixing different varieties to combine both sweet and tart apples. We made this bread pudding with local challah which made it a little more sweet and buttery. For a less decadent version, try using a local crusty loaf of Ciabatta or a few day-old baguettes.

Watermelon Salad with Rosewater

This recipe was taught in one of our City Market cooking classes on Inspired Vegetarian food, with instructor Jessica Bongard from Sweet Lime Cooking Studio. While the recipe is called a salad, it functions equally well as a dessert, with its sweet medjool dates and pistachios.

Maple Walnut Pie

This is more of a custard pie, with lovely notes of lemon and cinnamon and crunchy walnuts. It would be good with whipped cream.

Poached Pears

A simple and delicious recipe for pear season!

Pear Galette

The beauty of this fruit tart is in its irregularly-shaped handmade crust. Serve warm with French vanilla ice cream or brandy sauce and whipped cream.

Peaches and Honey Cream

A light, sweet cake that loves summer peaches, but is equally pleased with any seasonal fruit or berries. Top it off with a generous dollop of whipped cream sweetened with just a touch of honey.

Peach Cobbler

Simple comfort food like Grandma used to make.

Orange Supreme

This fresh dessert transforms a delicious orange into something truly sublime. Removing the oranges from their membranes requires a bit of time but it absolutely worth it. Serve this recipe for a winter dessert while oranges are in season, accompanied by cookies.
