This week’s L.A. Times Test Kitchen recipes

This article was originally on a blog post platform and may be missing photos, graphics or links. See About archive blog posts.

All recipes that appear in the L.A. Times’ weekly Food section are tested and perfected in our Test Kitchen before they’re deemed fit to print. (That means you don’t have to worry about a trial run before serving one of our recipes to company.) Rest assured, they should work the first time out of the gate.

Here’s a look at this week’s recipes:

Blackberry pie

Cafe Brasil’s passion fruit mousse (Mousse de Maracuja)

Flaky pie crust


Nectarine almond crumble pie

Strawberry pie

Sweet cherry pie
