Crema Catalana with Strawberries
Many Catalonian families make crema catalana on March 19 which is St. Joseph's Day. Apparently hens lay more eggs at this time of year than any other, so the 8 yolks required are readily available. The tradition is so deeply rooted, that in Catalan, the dessert is called crema de Sant Josep.
Requires 25 minutes to cook and 2 hours to chill

Lemon Meringue Pie
Margaret's standby recipe for lemon pie
Store bought lemon butter spread is not even close to being as good as homemade! This additive free, from-scratch lemon spread is incredibly creamy, tart and sweet. And you only need 4 ingredients and about 20 minutes to make it! Lemon butter is perfect for spreading on toast, scones, cakes, pancakes and more. It also makes the perfect gift in pretty jars.
The lemon butter should not be made directly in a saucepan, or it will catch (and possibly burn) on the bottom as it cooks. It should be made in a double-boiler set up. This will require a medium saucepan and a heat-proof bowl (I use a glass or stainless steel mixing bowl) that will fit snugly over the top of the saucepan (to prevent steam from escaping out from underneath the bowl). Importantly, the bottom of the bowl should not touch the water. Using a double-boiler will allow the lemon butter to cook slowly and consistently.
This a favourite dessert at Cioppino's and owner, Pino Posterero shares this recipe in his cookbook.
Lemon-Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Blueberry Sauce
This is a great make-ahead dessert. The creamy texture of the panna cotta is a nice match for summer fruit. Running a knife around the edge of each prepared custard makes it easier to remove to a plate.

Pie Crust - Pate Brisee
Use for pies and quiches, especially Margaret's Pumpkin Pie
What is the difference between pate brisee and pie crust? Because Pâte Brisée has less liquid and less gluten development, it has finer, more delicate crumb than the Traditional Canadian Pie Crust. Pâte Brisée is traditionally mixed by frissage, using the heel of your hand to rub and smear butter pieces into the dough.

Tocinilllo de cielo - Spanish Flan
Tocinillo de cielo (Heaven's little pig) is one of the most surprising desserts of the Spanish gastronomy. We could compare it, in sweet version, with the potato tortilla. From ingredients of common use (eggs, water, sugar) and using a technique of not at all particular elaboration, we get incredible results with little effort! Created in the early years of the last century, when wineries from Jerez de la Frontera donated the leftover egg yolks of the clarification (the egg whites are used to clarify the wine) to the nuns. These, with divine success, mixed them with syrup and they treated to the bath Maria, thus was born tocinillo de cielo... God blesses them!
Zabaglione - Sabayon with sugared fruit
