Sometimes, and often in December, we just want doughnuts — especially if they’re from the Fat Radish.
This rugged, chunky granola from Joyce Bakeshop in Prospect Heights makes a hearty topping for a bowl of local yogurt. Or enjoy it on its own and wash it down with a cool glass of milk.
Not only does this recipe call for butter, milk, half-and-half, and heavy cream, it of course deploys plenty of cheese—three types of cheddar plus Monterey Jack. But the crowning glory is, get this, cream cheese. After throwing everything else together—oops I mean assembling the layers—you dot the top with little blobs of cream cheese, which, once baked, become the best part of the dish. The recipe calls for four ounces, but I just might double that next time.
