A few things I made over the weekend.
Baklawa using whole wheat fillo, nut mixture (pistachio, walnut & cashew) and a breath of orange water.
Tropical Fruit Cream Pie that was a special request. They actually wanted coconut cream, and they wanted it in just a few hours. I didn't have the ingredients for coconut, so I talked them into this which was blood orange, mango & pineapple curd with a meringue top.
And, we had rare humidity this weekend which made all of my baking very happy! The croissants were as plump as I've ever made them. Perfectly risen, baked, egg washed...and boy were the chocolate ones delicious!
