The Best Sweets We Ate in July

Staff Picks The Serious Eats Team 1 comment

Pecorino. Gelato. Together. Pecorino gelato. Would you try it? It turns out that the stuff—served at Carapina in Florence, Italy—is amazing. But that wasn't the only mind-blowing dessert we tried in July: we also ate some fantastic durian shaved ice, chocolate babka, and a masterful coffee-coconut popsicle. We celebrated peach season with pies, Melba, and more. More

Stoned Tart From 'Sweet and Vicious'

Emma Kobolakis 1 comment

What seems like a simple tart is so much more, thanks to the cleverness of this recipe from Libbie Summers' new cookbook, Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude. It bakes up beautifully, a layer of pistachio cream mingling with juice from the mixed selection of fresh fruit. A fat scoop of vanilla ice cream is all that's needed for a finishing touch. More

In her recently released cookbook, Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude, Libbie Summers stirs hot pepper extract into a lightly spicy batter, and spikes the cream cheese frosting with spiced pecans. The fruitiness of the pepper works well with the carrot-heavy batter, further enhanced by traditional cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves. More

And there's plenty of malt to go around, in the form of crushed malted milk balls and malted milk powder. More

Gadgets: Make 5-Minute Ice Pops With the Zoku Quick Pop Maker

Gadgets Donna Currie 8 comments

Realistically, you can make ice pops in paper cups with wooden skewers for handles, but that's probably not as fun—or as trendy—as using a Zoku quick pop maker. Either way, it's certainly not nearly as fast. More
