Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins
This is a classic muffin recipe in its ratios of sugar, fat, egg, and flour. The generation of cake muffins that most people come to expect didnt come around until the advent of betty crocker muffin mixes. So yes, it is soft, and very simple in ingredients ie: no lemon, orange rind, spices, etc. It is a delightful recipe similar to one in my mothers 1919 cookbook. Two things to note: muffin papers didn't exist when muffins came about. They developed a nice brown crust in the iron and steel pans they were cooked in. Do yourself a favor and make a traditional muffin in the traditional way and enjoy the golden crust that held the muffin together. The last thing to note: muffin recipes use baking soda and that means they really bake best with higher heat. 425F is the magic number for muffins. First it sets the crust quickly which controls the "spread" and forces the muffin up into a pretty crown. The creation of mushroom shaped muffins is a modern thing. So crank up the oven to 425 when you make this recipe and they cook for about 12 minutes. By doing that you can have a muffin that is 2/3 full and have a nice crown. Love the recipe!

Tres Leches Cake
This is the go to cake when strawberry season rolls in. Now over time I've dabbled with changing things up. Use 1/4c. of fresh lime (or other citrus) juice plus 2T water for the liquid in the cake (nice little tang to it). Infuse the white sugar (granulated) with the zest of the citrus you pick. I've added rum to the milk sauce with great success. And we always use fresh fruit rather than canned. I use all the milk and we always pour the milk on while the cake is warm.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies
A classic butter shortbread jam cookie. Don't write a review for a shortbread cookie saying the dough is bland. Butter/shortbread cookies are all about the ingredients and the subtle nuance of the flavors. Buy the BEST butter, use quality fresh flour, and farm eggs to really make the recipe sing. We use Irish butter for a richness. In this case using a homemade low sugar jam will highlight the richness of the butter cookie.
