Have you ever attempted to make short cakes?? How fun! Also would be wonderful with our Strawberry Jam and fresh ripe strawberries!
Raspberry and Cream Shortcakes
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 stick plus 2 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup cold heavy cream, plus more for brushing
1/4 cup buttermilk
Sanding sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/3 cup confectioner's sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla bean paste
1 1/2 cup Red Raspberry Jam or our favorite Strawberry Jam (Available at Bonnes Amies kitchen)
3 cups fresh raspberries
Preheat oven to 400° F. In a food processor, combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, and butter and process until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes - 1 hour. Stir in cream and buttermilk until just combined.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to about 1-inch thickness. Use a large biscuit cutter to cut dough into 8 rounds (re-roll scraps once if necessary). Place, 1 1/2-inches apart, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush shortcakes with cream and sprinkle with sanding sugar. Bake until golden brown and set, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Meanwhile whip cream, confectioner's sugar and vanilla bean paste until soft peaks form.
Slice the shortcakes in half and spread each with Red Raspberry Jam. Top with raspberries and whipped cream. Serve immediately.

Hand Carved Large Driftwood Candles

The joy this large hand carved driftwood wild green fig candle has brought me in my kitchen!! So strong you can smell even when it is not flickering....beautiful!! Can't wait to create a succulent arrangement or use as a beautiful rustic tray.
Suggesting memories of sea-borne driftwood washed ashore and dried in the sun, our hand carved Driftwood Candle Tray is a weathered, light color, natural, renewable mango wood tray with a braided raffia tassel, handsome leather dustcover and a tied jute decorative accent. Each candle will vary slightly in appearance. This brawny candle comes in two sizes; twelve and a half inches by three inches tall with two wicks and twenty-one inches by three and a quarter inches tall with four wicks. The Driftwood Tray is hand poured in Georgia, by our experienced candle makers, with forty-four or twenty-four ounces of a clean burning, United States grown, fragranced soy wax blend with a high-quality fragrance compound oil. Our distinctive fragrances are saturated with layers of nuance, complex and intricate, and are designed to evoke a particular time and place, triggered by memories and nostalgia. 

Wild Green Fig- fresh leafy greens and black currant with amber and musk. This candle should give approximately fifty or forty hours of burn time. And, as with all our candles, the Driftwood Tray can be reused once the wicks have burned away, and it has been cleaned out, by refilling with our easy Candle Refill Kit, or repurposed as a decorative container for your table, kitchen counter or desk, to be used time and time again.

Lemon Raspberry Sugar Cookie Flowers👩‍🍳🍋

Lemon Curd is a best seller and is delicious all on it’s own or to make these delicious Lemon Raspberry Sugar Cookie Flowers!!
12 Tablespoon (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 ½ ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
Zest from 1 lemon
½ teaspoon lemon extract
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 1/2 4 cups all-purpose flour
Lemon Curd (@ Bonnes Amies Kitchen)
Red Raspberry Jam (@ Bonnes Amies Kitchen)
For the frosting (optional)
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 ½ Tablespoon meringue powder
4-6 tablespoons milk
In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the egg, egg yolk, extracts and zest. Beat until well combined.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add 3 ½ cups flour, salt and baking powder. Mix on low until combined. Continue to add additional flour until the dough forms a ball.
Remove from the bowl, form into a small disc and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
While your dough is chilling, preheat oven to 350°F.
Remove dough from refrigerator and roll on a well-floured surface until it is about ¼” thick. Using a flower shaped cookie cutter, begin cutting flowers, re-rolling dough as needed.
Lightly spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Gently press the flowers into the center so the leaves are overhanging the edges.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are slightly browned and the flowers are set. Remove from oven and let cool for approximately 5 minutes in the pan. Gently remove from the pan and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the frosting, starting with 4 Tbsp milk, and whisk until smooth. Add additional milk as needed.
Fill each flower cup with a small scoop of Red Raspberry Jam. With a piping bag filled with Lemon Curd, pipe a small amount of curd on top.
Decorate the edge of the flowers with the frosting if desired, or you can dust with powdered sugar.
