Ingredients
  

yan-yan crackers

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 ½ teaspoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup water

strawberry frosting

  • ¼ pound fresh strawberries, cleaned and hulled
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ to 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

chocolate frosting

  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cream

vanilla-bean frosting

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cream

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt into a food processor and pulse 4 times.
  • Add butter and pulse until a mealy/grainy texture forms.
  • Gradually add water, while pulsing, until all the water has been added and a smooth dough has formed.
  • Form the dough into a disc, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  • Roll chilled dough onto a lightly flours surface until about 1/8 inch thin.
  • Cut 3” x ¼” strips from the dough and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the sticks just begin to brown on the edges. Allow to cool completely.
  • strawberry frosting: Place strawberries, lemon juice and sugar into a food processor and puree until smooth. In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer cream butter. Add ½ cup powdered sugar followed by ½ the strawberry puree Add another ½ cup of powdered sugar followed by the remaining puree. Continue adding powdered sugar until a “dippable” consistency has been achieved.
  • chocolate frosting: Cream butter. Add ½ cup powdered sugar followed by the melted chocolate (make sure the chocolate is no longer hot) and cream together. Add the remaining sugar and cream until a “dippable” consistency has been achieved.
  • vanilla-bean frosting: Cream butter. Add ½ cup powdered sugar followed by the caviar of the vanilla bean (reserve vanilla bean itself for another use). Add remaining powdered sugar and cream until a “dippable” consistency has been achieved.
