Chocolate Chunk Cookie Pie

Serves 8

    Share

    This large-format dreamboat of a cookie (crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle) stars plenty of gooey dark chocolate, which can legitimately bring on feelings of calmness and perk up your mood. Cut this Zen-like pie into wedges and feel good about serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If needed, an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend can replace the spelt flour.

    An Elegant Afternoon Tea

    Whether you call her Mom, Mother, Momma, or Mum, an afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate that special person in your life. It can not only be a fun and elegant occasion but also offer a wonderfully relaxed celebration. Afternoon tea has come to be a sort of ritual that allows you to slow down and take your time. The pace is gentle and calm, allowing time for everyone to unwind. Because it’s also something we don’t all do every day, it can help spark conversation and provide a special sense of occasion. The host can prepare food in advance, and with plenty of options both savoury and sweet, it can easily provide something that all will enjoy. And because offerings are all beautifully laid out and displayed, there’s no getting up and down from the table, which leaves everyone free for the most important reason for gathering—spending time with Mom. With afternoon tea, there’s plenty of opportunity to visit and spend time together and enjoy delicious food; these six recipes will help you prepare an afternoon tea to nourish body and soul and to celebrate Mom in style.
