Perhaps you will remember my triumphant victory last year at Summer Fruits night with my out-of-this-world Peach Hand Pies. Summer Fruits is like the totally perfect Dessert Club theme - it's so seasonal, fresh, open-ended, and colorful! We've all agreed it's an annual must, and that it may be the prettiest spread we have all year.
This year it included:
Peach and Blackberry Mini Galettes
Sweet Cherry Tart
Raspberry Peach Bread Pudding
Roasted Berries on Meringues
Blackberry Curd over Honey-Lemon Pound Cake
with Raspberries, Blackberries, and Vanilla Sugar
Chilled Raspberry-Chile Soup
French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with Black Cherry Sauce
...and the great winner of the evening...
Blackberry-Cream Cheese Delight!
And in other fun news, it seems like half of Dessert Club is pregnant. The first of many new DC babies, Jane Independence, joined us, and even dressed for the occasion in her strawberry romper. Here's to DC: Next Generation!
