These cookies go by the many endearing names for pigs in Spanish: cerdito, cochinito, marranito, or puerquito. This is the recipe that is the most requested on my blog by Mexicans living abroad.
There is not a woman of any age whose heart will not beat a little more quickly when this gorgeous sweet is placed on the table.
Smoked almonds bring new life to the ever-popular salted caramel sundae.
The cookies are chubby and chewy and just a little soft at the center -- altogether great.
That it can be served minutes out of the oven makes this the perfect last-minute sweet.
The tart looks homey, but it's oddly sophisticated in its own way and not-so-oddly very satisfying, particularly after a hearty meal.
If you're going to take on an ambitious dessert, it had better look and taste spectacular. This is one of those creations — a dome of cake filled with alternating layers of almond and pistachio mousses, fresh raspberries, and finished with billows of whipped cream. It comes to the table looking like a great white snowdrift studded with fresh raspberries.
