Simple homemade sweets with a French twist
Easy Does It
Apples and dates come together beautifully in this low-fat crisp. You can mix and match apple varieties for more flavor complexity.
The French love to assemble single-serving desserts in glasses, and this easy Charlotte makes for an elegant treat. Dried lavender teases floral notes out of the pears.
Take a sweet trip to India with this easy frozen treat, spiked with green cardamom and nuggets of pistachio. Silken tofu makes it extra creamy and smooth with no dairy. Grinding the seeds from whole cardamom pods offers the freshest flavor—look for the pods at spice purveyors and gourmet kitchenware stores.
There’s nothing intimidating about these zesty soufflés, just be sure to grease the sides of the ramekins up to the rim so they’ll rise fully in the oven.
