Pineapple Quesitos: A Spring Breakfast (or Dessert) Treat


Cooking Channel readers, meet quesitos. These wonderful little pastries are sold at bakeries throughout Puerto Rico, eaten most often at breakfast alongside a cup of coffee. The cigar-shaped treats are filled with sweetened cream cheese and various fruits, like guava paste, passion fruit and, as used here, pineapple. The tangy-sweet fruit surrenders to its sugary side when sauteed with butter, brown sugar and vanilla, making the quesitos taste even more decadent. They’re beautiful in a shabby-chic kind of way, nothing fussy — just rustic goodness with a generous dusting of powdered sugar. The best thing is that you can whip them together in about 10 minutes and instantly satisfy your craving for something sweet. But piled high on a platter, they just as easily translate into a beautiful dessert for spring entertaining.

Easy Rhubarb-Cherry Pie


This pie was baked by my 14-year-old son. He made the dough, mixed a filling of tart rhubarb and sweet cherries, and then he created the lattice. I sat back, trying not to take over, and just watched in amazement as he figured it all out. It was a thing of beauty to see him moving so confidently in the kitchen and his pie, well you can see for yourself, the kid has skill. I was in heaven. There is nothing sweeter than a kid in the kitchen and especially when he’s baking my favorite pie.
