Recipe Roundup: Herb-Enhanced Desserts

 

Fresh herbs can lend desserts a subtle aromatic note that completely transforms the dish. Here are a few of our favorite herb-enhanced sweets.

 

Basil-Peach Sorbet

The perfect ending to a summer meal, this subtle sorbet is made with sweet, ripe peaches and a basil-infused simple syrup.

 

Chocolate-Rosemary Bombolini

Bombolini are essentially Italian doughnut holes. This version from chef Matt Kelley is filled with a rich, rosemary-scented chocolate ganache.

 

Chilled Watermelon Soup with Mint and Ginger

The classic combination of watermelon and mint is enlivened with a touch of ginger in this refreshing, sweet soup from Carla Pellegrino.

 

Riesling-Poached Pineapple with Rosemary Whipped Cream and Pink Peppercorns

Rosemary whipped cream and crushed pink peppercorns balance the sweetness of wine-poached pineapple. Start this recipe a day early to give the rosemary enough time to infuse the cream.
