Lemon-Herb Shortbread Cookies

These surprisingly sophisticated cookies are made with less butter than traditional shortbread, and almond flour replaces some of the refined white flour for extra nutrients. Get a head start by making the dough up to a month ahead and freezing it. Serve these cookies on their own, or as part of a pretty post-dinner spread with fruit, nuts, and dark chocolate.

Pear Tarte Tatin

A little indulgence goes a long way in this luscious tarte. Our version has less butter and sugar than usual and instead relies on the pears’ juices to create a mouthwatering caramel sauce. Don’t be tempted to use Bartlett pears in this recipe, but Bosc will do in a pinch. The unsweetened whipped cream is perfect counterpoint to the caramelized fruit.

White whole-wheat flour is the magic ingredient in this crowd-pleaser, giving the cake whole wheat goodness, while maintaining a tender crumb. What exactly is white whole wheat flour? It’s a whole-grain flour made from a different strain of wheat than traditional all-purpose or whole wheat flour. It has the nutrition of traditional whole-wheat flour, but the lighter color, taste, and texture of all-purpose.

Ambrosia Trifle

Bring this show-stopper to a potluck and watch your friends’ jaws drop. They’ll also appreciate that it’s relatively light, thanks to the angel food cake, especially after a heavy holiday meal. Make your own angel food cake, or pick one up at the supermarket.
