Introducing: Desserts in Jars
Posted by EmilyFriday June 8, 2012
Sound silly? Our kitchen actually holds no drinking glasses, and instead we have cupboards full of mason jars. The refrigerator here is often stocked with homemade jams. And right now, I have a some pink peonies sitting on my desk, not in a vase but in a jar.
Some of these adorable little sweets are baked right in the jars, like the Peach Bourbon Pies and Caramel Crème Cheesecakes… while others use them as more of a display case, like Macarons in a Jar and Peach-Raspberry Verrines with Lemon-Thyme Cream. There’s also an entire chapter chock full of mixes for giving– Espresso Brownies Mix delivered in a jar sounds like quite a nice gift if I do say so myself…!
On Monday I’ll be giving you a sneak peek at one of my favorite recipes in the book– Strawberry Shortcakes! So stay tuned, and if you bake any desserts in jars over the weekend, be sure to let us know!
