Kristen Miglore, the food-obsessed mind behind the Food52 column "Genius Recipes," has a new cookbook called Food52 Genius Desserts. It's a wonderful collection of dessert recipes from some of the biggest names in baking and desserts. We met up with Kristen recently in the test kitchen at Cooks of Crocus Hill, where she showed us how to make two recipes from the book: Secretly Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies and Greek Yogurt Chocolate Mousse.
The Secretly Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe comes from Agatha Kulaga and Erin Patinkin at the popular Brooklyn bakery Ovenly, and relies on a resting stage for the dough that helps to create an amazing cookie that will be loved by vegans and non-vegans alike. The Greek Yogurt Chocolate Mousse recipe comes from ancient grain expert Maria Speck. The inclusion of Greek yogurt adds a unique depth to the dessert, cuts down on process time, and amplifies the level of chocolate flavor. Check out our recipe videos below.
