Lemon Butter Cake

After wanting to try this recipe for ages, Jess stays up late and bakes this beautiful butter cake using the last 2 lemons in her fridge. Moist, light and bursting with zesty lemon flavor, she says this is "definitely a keeper". Suddenly I have a craving for lemons! :)

Classic Peach Pie (sugar-free)

Classic Peach Pie (sugar-free)

Got fresh sweet summer peaches? The Blue Ridge Baker bakes this scrumptious classic:

"This pie was unbelievable. Relying almost entirely on the peaches themselves for sweetness, the fruit nestled between two layers of buttery, flaky, perfect pie crust, served with orange blossom-scented whipped cream. Oh, my. It disappeared in a matter of minutes."

I love drop scones because they're quick and easy to make, can be made sweet, savory, or plain - and are super-yummy. These classic rich drop scones are bursting with fresh blueberries. Yum!

Toasted Hickory Nut Butter Cookies

I love this recipe and story for these buttery crisp cookies made with spelt flour and hickory nuts (which are new to me too). Miss Megan bakes these delectable treats, and says: "The hickory nut imparts such amazing maple flavor. These cookies are a shortbread/butter cookie hybrid and are very addicting!"

Eva's wonderful treat is velvety and filled with a rich chocolaty cookie dough center, begging to be topped off with fluffy cookies and cream frosting. It won't be long before we cave in and turn our ovens on to bake ourselves a batch, in spite of the oppressive heat.
