For years, Kristen Miglore has written a genius column for Food52 called "Genius Recipes." They’re the recipes she’s collected from authors and chefs that can change the way you cook. She has a new cookbook that is a collection of dessert recipes, appropriately name Genius Desserts, also provided by some of the biggest names in baking and desserts.
With the holiday season upon us, we wanted to ask her about tips and techniques for making your desserts disaster-proof - and what to do if something does go wrong. Listen to her interview with Francis Lam. Then see the recipes for No Stress Pie Dough, Pumpkin Pie with Pecan Crunch, and Almond Crackle Cookies. We also met up with Kristen recently in the test kitchen at Cooks of Crocus Hill, where she showed us how to make Secretly Vegan Choclate Chip Cookies and Greek Yogurt Chocolate Mousse. Check out our recipe videos below.
