I love reading everyone’s week 1′s comment on the Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Cookie Frosting! Honestly, those cupcakes are my favorite. I just love the salty sweet peanut butter chocolate combo. Last weeks cookbook club winner is Lan. Congrats, you’ve won a Starbucks or Amazon $15 gift card. If you’re new to this discussion, we are having an online cookbook club for 6 weeks cooking out of the SAVORY SWEET LIFE cookbook. Each week we are discussing the featured recipes and I’m also giving away a $15 e-gift card to Starbucks or Amazon just for the fun of it. Feel free to join us, I would love to have you!
Moving on to Peach Croissants, this week 2 recipe is seriously easy. I can put these together in about 5 minutes and everytime I make them people always rave. The cookbook suggests cutting the puff pasty into four squares but the peaches I’m seeing at the store lately are on the smaller side so I’ve been cutting them into 9 squares to make them mini-sized. I’m definitely in love with the smaller version. Last time I made these were for a tv segment and the crew gobbled them up in about 30 seconds. One woman came up to me afterward shocked at how easy they were to assemble yet tasted so good.
Hope you enjoy making these this week. With peaches in season, it’s the perfect time to make these – if not for someone else, make them for you! Feel free to share your thoughts about them below. I’ll pick a winner by Sunday. Next week we will move on to a savory Asian inspired dish: Thai Marinated Grill Chicken Skewers and Peanut Coconut Sauce on page 86.
