the hole-in-the-wall coffee place near my childhood home of n'awlins used to serve cafe glace, which is essentially just a big cup of hot, sweetened coffee, with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream in it. and it's indescribably wonderful. but you just can't have that kind of sugar load every day. if you keep the cherry puree premade, you can have this one every morning. made, but not submitted, for rsc 12.
these brownies soothe the most intense chocolate cravings. you can't taste the coffee liqueur; it adds depth and richness. they lend themselves to multiple variations, too! i've added raspberry chips, nuts, etc., all with great success.
the secret of success with these extra-high, super-sticky buns is creating dough with just the right texture. the buns should turn out soft and fluffy, almost cottony. to avoid over kneading the dough, which causes excess gluten development, knead by hand
another caribbean recipe! this time it's cheese balls that would be great as an appetizer or snack! (you may want to use a combination of the sharp cheese and some gouda or edam cheese for a more authentic dutch caribbean flavor!) prep time includes time
