Instructions
  1. Whisk yeast and ¼ cup warm water in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium until just warm. Combine shortening, sugar, and kosher salt in a large bowl. Add warm milk; whisk to blend, breaking up shortening into small bowl. Whisk in yeast mixture and egg. Add 3½ cups flour; stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until dough forms. Knead dough with lightly floured hands on a lightly floured surface until smooth, 4–5 minutes. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl; turn to coat. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let stand at room temperature until doubled, about 1½ hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Lightly brush baking dish with some melted butter. Punch down dough; divide into 4 equal pieces. Working 1 log/piece at a time, roll out on a lightly flour surface into 8-9 pieces.
  4. Add parchment paper to the baking pan. Add dough balls touching one another to form 1 long row. Repeat with remaining dough for 3 rows. Brush with melted butter, loosely cover with plastic, and chill at least 30 minutes or up to 5 hours.
  5. Bake rolls until golden and puffed, 25–35 minutes. Brush with butter; sprinkle sea salt over. Serve warm.

Flourless chocolate cookies

Flourless chocolate cookies
A while back I started fooling around with confectioners sugar vs granulated sugar. I made a few batches of cookies using only confectioners sugar, some were pretty good others not so much. In my research I came across Megan Phelan. Megan is a Sullivan Street alumni who I believe is the architect of these flourless chocolate cookies. The batter is quick and easy the results are fantastic.

  1. Preheat over to 375F line baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a small bowl. Whisk egg whites and vanilla together.
  2. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in egg whites. Stir mixture with a fork until it just begins to come together. Add chocolate chips and stir until combined. The dough will be sticky and very dark.
  3. Using a tablespoon, pack batter by pressing and dragging spoon against inside of bowl to make sure the dough is tight and compact. Place packed dough on parchment lined cookie sheet 3-inches apart and bake for 12 minutes or tops are glossy and set. Let cookies rest at least 15 minutes on a wire rack. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. Makes 10-12 cookies

  1. In a saucepan, bring farro, apple cider, kosher salt, bay leaves and 2 cups water to a simmer. Simmer until farro is tender and liquid evaporates, about 30 minutes. If all the liquid evaporates before the farro is done, add a little more water. Let farro cool, discard bay leaves.
  2. In a salad bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Add farro, nuts and mix well. This salad base will keep for up to 4 hours at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator (bring to room temperature before serving). Just before serving, fold in arugula, cheese, herbs, tomatoes, radish and sea salt to taste.
