Quiche is that one recipe that I love coming back to — it's easy to make, looks delicious and tastes heavenly :-) Plus, it allows me to come up with new fillings, which makes it very versatile!
Sweet potatoes are very smooth and creamy when boiled, then baked, and shallots add a crunchy texture. The combination of them is very mild and aromatic, so make sure you spice it up to your liking!
I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.
Do you remember these delightful ideas for folding puff pastry? This pastry dough is a miracle and the biggest accomplishment of French cooks. It's buttery in taste and fluffy, delicate and perfect for almost any baked recipe that is destined to impress. While this simple puff pastry is not as good as the original French recipe, it skips all that butter drama and difficulty, which will be a plus for less advanced cooks! Lightly knead the dough, let it rest in the refrigerator for some time and roll in one session.
