Do you remember the Bruffins I blogged about just before Easter? Well, I couldn't get that delicious and easy to make brioche dough out of my head so decided I would make another batch and try a few sweet brioche pastry recipes. Three, to be exact! My adventures in brioche dough...:)
Cherry Brioche Snails, above, made with pastry cream and plumped dried cherries flamed with rum.
Danish-style pastries filled with Pastry Cream, Raspberry - Hibiscus Preserves and Almonds.
These were my favorite! Brioche dough patted into my small, removable bottom tart pans, and filled with pastry cream, raspberry and hibiscus preserves and topped with a sugary almond/egg white slurry.
Chocolate-Almond Cinnamon Swirl Muffins. Bits of chopped chocolate, almonds and cinnamon sugar wrapped in brioche dough, and shaped into muffins.
I like mine topped with a pat of sweet butter. Great for breakfast or tea!
Speaking of tea, have your tried Yogi 'Joint Comfort' tea with Turmeric? I'm not fond of the taste of turmeric on its own but this decaf green tea also has lemongrass and peppermint leaf for a refreshing, bright taste. It's my new favorite tea!
Before I leave you with my three brioche pastry recipes, I'd like to thank Stephanie at The Glamorous Gourmet for the beautiful Williams Sonoma Market Herb Wreath! I was the lucky winner of her giveaway this month and it is now hanging in the window above my kitchen sink. If you enjoy wine, Stephanie is a certified sommelier who dishes up some great recipes and wine recommendations. Thank
you again, Stephanie!
Here are the links to each of the three recipes above.

Note: I forgot to add the 3 egg yolks to the recipe for the Pastry Cream, which is now added to the recipe. I also fixed the link to the Danish Style Pastries! Sorry for the confusion!
