Rosemary Shortbread with Artisan Edibles Pomegranate Hot Pepper Jelly

¾ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup confectioner’s sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
2 ½ tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
½ teaspoon kosher salt or sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2-3 tablespoons Artisan Edibles’ Pomegranate Hot Pepper Jelly

In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attached, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and smooth, approximately 3 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally. If you do not have a stand mixer use a large bowl and an electric beater on medium speed.

Whisk together the flour, rosemary, salt and pepper. Slowly add the butter to the flour mixture using a low speed on the mixer. Divide the dough in half and shape into rounds. Wrap each round in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350F.
Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.

On a lightly floured board roll one of the rounds to ¼ inch thickness. Be sure to lightly flour the rolling pins. Using a 2 ½- or 3- inch cookie cutter cut dough. Roll any scraps carefully without adding too much additional flour. Place 12 cookies on first sheet about 1-inch apart. Repeat this process with the remaining round of dough. Use a 1-inch cutter to cut centers from the second half of the cookies. Place these cookies on the second sheet. Place the cut rounds onto the third sheet.

Bake until edges are lightly browned – approximately 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies from oven and let cool for 15 minutes.  Do not turn oven off.

Spread ½ teaspoon of Pomegranate Hot Pepper Jelly (or more if you like hotter) onto the flat side of the 2 ½ inch solid cookies. Place the cutout cookies flat side down on top of the jelly. Bake for an additional two minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container.

Chocolate Buttermilk Cake with Chocolate Mascarpone Frosting and Raspberry Cardamom Filling

(cake recipe courtesy of Great Desserts, Aunt Charlotte’s Milk Chocolate Cake by Jim Fobel)

¼ pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
¼ cup white vegetable shortening
2 cups granulated sugar
3 ounces semisweet chocolate melted and cooled
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
4 whole eggs
1 egg yolk
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 ½ tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1 ½ cups buttermilk

Prepare the cake:
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease three 9-inch round cake pans. Line the bottom of each pan with a circle of parchment paper or waxed paper. Grease the pans again, applying a generous layer to the sides and paper.

In a medium bowl beat together the butter, shortening and granulated sugar until very light and creamy, about five minutes.
Beat in the melted chocolate and vanilla. One at a time, add the eggs, beating well after each addition. Beat in the egg yolk.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
Place the baking soda and vinegar in a small bowl and stir while it foams; add the buttermilk.
Working quickly and lightly, fold about ½ cup of the dry ingredients into the chocolate mixture. As soon as it is incorporated, fold in a ¼ cup of the buttermilk mixture.
Repeat until all the flour and buttermilk have been added.

Divide the batter among the three cake pans and spread it evenly. Place in the oven immediately and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, until the centre of each cake springs back when lightly touched. Shift pan positions half way through to allow for even baking. Allow the layers to cool in the pans for twenty minutes.

Champagne Rose Petal Jelly Meringue Roulade with Rose Petals and Fresh Raspberries

Inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi’s recipe – a showstopper dessert, any time of the year!


For the Meringue:
4 egg whites, at room temperature
250g caser sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. white wine vinegar
1 tsp. cornstarch

For the Cream:
100g mascarpone
1 Tbsp. sugar, plus extra for dusting
1 1/2 Tbsp. rose water
400ml heavy whipping cream
2 Tbsp. Artisan Edibles’ Champagne Rose Petal Jelly

For the Filling:
150g fresh raspberries, washed and dried on a clean dish towel
2 Tbsp. dried rose petals
1 tsp. pistachios, crushed


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Line a 9.5 by 13 inch baking pan with two rectangular sheets of parchment paper so that there is a slight overhang around the edges and base and sides are covered.

Using a large, clean bowl whisk the egg whites by hand or with a mixer until they form very soft peaks. Begin adding the caster sugar in a slow stream until the egg whites become firm and very glossy.

Gently fold the vanilla extract, vinegar, and cornflour into the meringue with a large metal spoon. Carefully pour the meringue into the prepared baking pan, levelling the top with a spatula or palette knife.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, a crust should have formed and the meringue should be cooked through while still feeling soft to the touch). Allow to cool in the tin before tipping the meringue onto a fresh piece of parchment paper and peeling the paper off of the sides.

In a separate bowl whisk together the mascarpone, icing sugar, and rose water. Add the whipping cream and whisk by hand for about 4 minutes, or until rosewater cream just begins to hold its shape (or, use an electric mixer but take care not to overmix).  Gently fold in Champagne Rose Petal Jelly.

Working with the original underside of the meringue facing up, spread most of the rosewater cream mixture (leaving a few tablespoons to complete the dessert) onto the meringue making sure to leave a border around the edges. Scatter most of the raspberries and 1 1/2 Tbsp. of rose petals over the cream.

Use the parchment paper to assist you in rolling up the meringue along its long edge, aiming for a perfect log shape of rosewater cream stuffed meringue. Transfer to a pretty serving dish and use the remaining rosewater cream to create a wavy stripe along the top of the log. Chill for at least 30 minutes.

To serve, dust the meringue with icing sugar, scattering the remaining rose petals, raspberries, and pistachios over the dessert to finish … enjoy!
