Bakewell Tart

If you’re an American, there’s a good chance that you’ve never tried, much less heard of, a Bakewell Tart.  I am fortunate that a big portion of my family is from England, so I’ve grown up on these amazing almond short bread pastries with raspberry filling and maraschino cherries on top.  Thank God, because they… Continue reading Bakewell Tart

Peanut Butter Pie
