Aunt June’s Lemon Icebox Pie

This is my mom’s sister’s, my Aunt June’s, icebox pie. It was my dad’s favorite pie, so she always brought one when she came to visit. She topped hers with meringue, but I prefer whipped cream. The gingersnap crust was also my addition, because I love gingersnaps with lemon.   Makes one 9-inch pie (Serves […]

Cherries Jubilee with Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

This is a classic. I serve this with frozen yogurt instead of ice cream because I like the tanginess of the yogurt with the sweet, syrupy cherries. Use any variety of cherries you want–sweet or sour. Serves 4 to 6 2 cups pitted cherries (about 10 ounces), plus extra for garnish ¾ cup dry white […]

Blackberry Cobbler with Drop Cream Biscuits

As homemade desserts go, cobblers are about as easy as they come; even better, they are endearingly homey and invariably good. The fluffy cream biscuits floating over this blackberry cobbler couldn’t be simpler—just mix and drop. Serve warm with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Buttermilk Pound Cake with Tangy Buttermilk Glaze

Buttermilk is used all the time in Southern baking to create a soft, fluffy texture and add a little tang, but it’s not often placed front and center. That’s a shame, because this creamy beverage, which tastes sort of like a cross between cow’s milk and plain unsweetened yogurt, has a lovely tart quality that […]

Turtle Cheesecake

Chesecake is a staple at the Market, but it’s different nearly every day because we vary the toppings, crusts, and flavorings. Cookie crusts are particularly good with cheesecakes. If you prefer you cheesecake plain, just serve it without the topping.
