Pisco Sours for West Elm

Getting back in the swing of things after a vacation is tough, isn’t it?! Phew! I feel like I’m barely holding it together.

I’m currently spending all my free time watching episode after episode of Property Brothers on HGTV. I can’t stop watching. And it took me a million episodes to realize they’re twins. 🙁

Pisco Sours for West Elm

Anyway! Just because 4th of July is in our past doesn’t mean summer is over. Oh no. This Pisco Sour recipe is refreshing, perfectly tart and the froth that lives on the top of the drink, makes the best mustache. All good things!

This recipe is on West Elm. And, if you stroll into a West Elm store, you’ll see a little stanchion with the recipe on it. FUN!

I’m doing a few more Peruvian recipes with them to promote their new fair-trade Peruvian items (I took a look at them and they’re really pretty!). To check out the recipe and the rest of the photos, check out their blog, Front and Main.

Alfajores, my favorite Peruvian cookie, has been a long-standing favorite. (I first blogged about them two years ago here!) Back in the day, I made them in a smaller version, and I continue to do so. I would categorize them as a deceivingly rich cookie. They’re blond in color so you think nothing of it, but honestly after one big cookie, I’m totally done. The solution has always been simple for me: make them mini!If you’ve never had them or heard of them, I’ll happily explain…

Think short bread cookie sandwich, filled with creamy dulce de leche (Peruvians call it manjar blanco). They’re super easy to make and remind me of being a little kid. The older version calls for white sugar, which results in a crisper cookie. My dad actually prefers the snappy version, but if you’re looking for a softer version, sub in powdered sugar.

I blogged about the newer, softer version over on PBS Food where you can get the full recipe and see more pretty pictures of cookies.
