Recipe from ‘Sweet Gratitude’ by Matthew Rogers and Tiziana Aplio Tamborra, from Cafe Gratitude.
I worked at Cafe Gratitude in Berkeley, CA for 5 years, one year as a baker and the other 4 years managing farmers markets, catering, wedding cakes and a line of products in grocery stores. I would eat these desserts guiltlessly for breakfast. This is a nontraditional item for Thanksgiving but will be a sure hit. I’m drooling just thinking about it.
