Sometimes you just want something super indulgent and easy to make. That’s where carmelitas come in. They’re the bar cookies I didn’t know I was missing until I had them, and they’re the perfect thing to have while sipping a coffee. Carmelitas are what you might get if you crossed a Twix bar with a buttery oatmeal cookie, and they don’t require a mixer to make.

Summer Fruit Galettes

Galettes are some of my favourite things to make: they’re free formed and require no special equipment, they can be filled with almost infinite combinations for both sweet and savoury profiles, and they’re intentionally rustic so they look good without much effort. I make them with a basic pie dough and fill them with seasonal produce, since everything tastes good in a buttery crust but the flavour is neutral enough that it complements pretty much anything.
