Democratic National Convention Desserts

Slide 3 of 5

Dried Cherry Compote with Shortbread and Mascarpone

For Michelle Obama
While the Ritz-Carlton in Denver will be serving convention guests shortbread cookies made from the potential future First Lady’s own recipe, chef Jennifer Jasinski would love to serve the woman herself Rioja’s version from pastry chef Eric Dale: lemon-anise shortbread-cookie sandwiches with Colorado honey ice cream and black mission figs. In F&W’s version, anise-scented shortbread cookies provide a crumbly, buttery accompaniment for a rich compote of dried cherries.
