Crookneck Squash & Corn Soup

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
Crookneck squash and corn give this velvety soup its sunshine glow. Rather than grating cheese atop, we like to place a single slice of Humboldt Fog from our sister creamery Cypress Grove on top. With its ash-ripened exterior and cakey center, it's bold, bright, and brilliant for summer. If you can't find the classic goat cheese, a slab of our organic Mt Tam or Fromage Blanc makes a decadent topper.

Roasted Plum & Inverness Shortcakes

Posted by Cowgirl Creamery on
It's peak stone fruit season in California, and these Roasted Plum Shortcakes with Inverness are giving us all the summer feels. The Braise combines our fresh and funky Inverness with sweet and sticky roasted plums infused with sweet vermouth, lemon zest, and thyme. Sandwiched by pillowy buttermilk biscuits and garnished with sweet and savory candied pistachios, this dessert is nothing short of spectacular. If you're in a pinch, storebought biscuits with macerated strawberries will do the trick, but our pint-sized Inverness really shines with these ruby-red, aromatic plums.
