Chocolate Buckwheat Cookies

Buckwheat flour is a common ingredient in Maine where I grew up. I remember seeing ployes, or Acadian buckwheat pancakes on restaurant menus in the northern part of the state where my grandparents are from. I fell in love with its nutty earthiness, though, when I tried galettes bretonnes, or Breton buckwheat crêpes, my first time in France.

Korzinki: Russian Jam Tarts

Korzinki are Russian tartlets with a cookie crust and piled high with Italian meringue. They are usually filled with jam, but you can sometimes find them filled with caramel, chocolate, nuts, or lemon curd. Korzinki get their name because the tartlets resemble little baskets.
