Adding a Chef's Touch

2. Easy Fruit Tart
Easy Fruit Tart
Who doesn't love both the look and taste of a Fruit Tart? Unfortunately the classic recipe can be a little time consuming, so I decided to make what I call an "Easy" Fruit Tart. A simpler version, perfect for weekdays when time is at a minimum. This Easy Fruit Tart is made with a very simple shortbread crust and the filling is just a beaten mixture of heavy cream and mascarpone cheese. It is so simple yet so good.
3. Cheesecake Topped With Lemon

5. Pineapple Fritter

These coconut and pineapple fritters are super crispy due to the light tempura batter! We've marinated the pineapple in rum and coconut for an extra tropical twist.
6. Delicious Thumbprint Cookies
Delicious Thumbprint Cookies
Thumbprint Cookies are a very popular holiday cookie. They are made with a shortbread-like dough that is formed into balls and then rolled in either finely chopped nuts or dried coconut. The name 'thumbprint' comes from the fact you use your "thumb" to make an indentation into each ball of dough and then fill it with jam.
7. Delicious Brownies Recipe
Delicious Brownies Recipe
This is a Brownie with a dry cracked crust, a wonderfully moist texture, and a rich deep chocolate flavor. Brownies are often classified as "fudgy" or "cakey", yet I would describe this brownie as a cross between the two. They are wonderful plain or I often serve them for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
