Brian's Sour Cherry Pie

Brian's Sour Cherry Pie

Apr 30, 2012

When I was young, my dad usually kept his cooking to a minimum. However, when I began my culinary career as an adult, his passion for cooking started to flourish. Our long-distance phone calls now turn into conversations about what we prepared for dinner that week or a new hors d'oeuvre he's excited to make for the next family gathering. Holiday dinners have gone from turkey and stuffing to eight-course seafood feasts with my father at the helm.

Dad has more of a meat tooth than a sweet tooth, but this sour cherry pie remains one of his all-time favourites. I now make it every year for his birthday. The small cherry tree in his backyard yields enough for only one pie and perhaps a few small tarts, making this pie a rare treat. – Amanda Barnier

Boston Cream Pie

 There's a cake masquerading under this pie's name. Pie tins were commonly used as cake pans by New England colonists in the late 1800s, and the name stuck. Make sure you preheat your oven for this cake – if it's not up to temperature, the cake won't rise.

"Rich butterscotch pudding fills these sweet shortbread cups, which are easy to serve at a sit-down dinner or a cocktail party–style gathering.

To simplify dinner prep, bake and freeze these rolls in advance—if you can resist eating them fresh out of the oven. The secret to their divine texture is to use just enough flour to keep the dough from sticking to your hands.

Petals and Pearls Wedding Cake

Petals and Pearls Wedding Cake

The shimmering metallic accents on this cake go beautifully with any bride's colour scheme. Look for prepared gum paste and rolled fondant at any cake-decorating supply store. Gum paste mix is also widely available and can be mixed according to package directions for the same result. To give the flowers a curved shape, set them on a plastic artist's paint palette with round wells. Gum paste dries quickly, so by the time you've filled all of the wells, you can begin to remove the flowers to make room for more.

This tall chocolate and orange multi-tiered cake will make a great impression on a couple's big day. The colours can be made to work with any palette; just be sure to go light and dark enough on either end to allow for a gradient of colour on the middle two tiers.

These pops make an adorable edible centrepiece on your Thanksgiving table. Small gingersnap thins fit neatly in a measuring cup; if you're using bigger cookies, break them into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces to fit in the cup. To make the crumbs, pulse the cookies in a food processor, or put them in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin, until they're crumbly but not powdery.
