This week, I baked two absolutely wonderful recipes.
First off, I used the brioche dough from last week to make Brioche Raisin Snails. Wow! Was that ever fun! I loved soaking the raisins in boiling water for 4 minutes, then dumping in some rum, and lighting it! Playing with fire in the kitchen! The interesting thing about the rummy raisins is that the rum flavor wasn't really detectable--they just tasted delicious.
The second recipe I made was a Summer Fruit Galette. I made this for my birthday and used fresh peaches. Beautiful, wonderful, and delicious! I followed Dorie's suggestion and spread the dough with ginger preserves and while I wouldn't have thought it possible, the preserves improved the taste of the already splendid peaches.
