Some Bon Appetit recipes include plum tarts with honey and black pepper, chocolate chip cookies and salted peanut butter and jelly blondies. There are also several different cheesecake and chocolate cake recipes such as a simple two-layer chocolate birthday cake with milk chocolate ganache and BA's best cheesecake.
To make some quick plum tarts, spread 1 sheet of puff pastry dough onto a baking sheet, and cut it into squares. Prick the dough with a fork, and layer with plum wedges. Scatter 1/4 cup of sugar and freshly ground black pepper over the top of the plums. Cook at 425 F for 25 to 30 minutes, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of honey and flaky sea salt before serving.
Another Bon Appetit recipe is BA's best cheesecake. Start with the crust by blending 9 ounces of graham crackers until fine crumbs form. Mix in 1 tablespoon of raw sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/2 cup of melted unsalted butter. Press the crust into a springform pan, and bake at 350 F for 12 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine 20 ounces of softened cream cheese with 3/4 cup of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt until well-blended. Add seeds from 1 vanilla bean, 2/3 cup of sour cream and 1/4 teaspoon of lemon zest to the batter, and beat in 2 eggs. Pour the batter into the crust and bake at 325 F for 35 to 40 minutes.
