PJ's Favorites

"I've been baking on my own for close to 50 years — nearly 30 of them at King Arthur Flour — and after much deliberation (how do you choose your favorite child?), these are my most-loved recipes. Here's the bottom line on these treats: they're utterly delicious, and I never tire of them. The recipes are foolproof; they're easy (or at least not fussy); they make me happy. Enjoy!" 

PJ Hamel, employee-owner since 1990
