Ginger Blueberry Muffins
Pastry chef Alan Carter of Mission Beach Cafe in California shares his favorite seasonal scones, pies, cookies, and muffins.

Cranberry-Lemon Scones

These rich and tender scones get a punch of flavor from fresh cranberries and lemon zest.

Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie

This gooey dessert has all the goodness of a classic pecan pie with the added bonus of bittersweet chocolate.

Rosemary Shortbread Cookies

The citrusy flavor of rosemary adds zest to every bite of these crisp, buttery cookies.

Banana Butterscotch Cream Pie

Fold chunks of bananas into thick butterscotch custard and pour into a flakey piecrust. Drizzled white and dark chocolate makes it irresistible.

Sour Cherry Pie

Tart cherries and cranberries practically tumble out of this rich double-crust pie when it's sliced. Serve with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.

Ginger Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins get a fun twist in this version spiced with ginger and molasses.
