Ingredients
Sandwich ingredients:
  • 1 4 oz. jar Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread
  • 12 Kings Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls
  • 1/2 lb. Boars Head Baby Swiss Cheese, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 lb. Boars Head Smokemaster Beechwood Smoked Ham, shaved
  • 1/2 lb. Boars Head Black Forest Turkey Breast, shaved
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Optional: Minced parsley and apple slices
Sauce ingredients:
  • 4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
Servings:
Instructions
Sauce:
  1. Melt butter and whisk in onion powder and seasoned salt. Set aside and make sandwiches.
Sandwich:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice rolls in half horizontally so you have a top and bottom half, not tearing rolls apart. Place bottom half of rolls on a baking sheet. Spread the bottom layer of rolls with about half a jar of Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread, then layer the shaved ham, add a layer of sliced cheese, then the shaved turkey and another layer of sliced cheese.
  2. Spread yellow mustard lightly on the cut side of the bun tops, then place it on top of the meat and cheese and bottom bun.
  3. Use a silicone brush and brush the sauce on the assembled sandwiches.
  4. Wrap with foil and bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove foil and bake for another 5 minutes to lightly brown the buns.
  5. Optional: Sprinkle with finely minced parsley and serve with apple slices.
  6. Make ahead directions: Assemble sandwiches but do not sauce them. Place sandwiches back in original Kings Hawaiian tray and bag, store in refrigerator or cooler until needed. When ready to serve, simply make the sauce then brush sandwiches with it and follow above baking directions. Sandwiches may need to bake a little longer with the foil on depending on how cold they are.

Servings Prep Time
6 biscuits 10 minutes
Cook Time
8-10 minutes
Ingredients
  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon butter melted, for brushing biscuits
  • Flour for dusting work surface
Servings: biscuits
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Combine lemon juice and milk in measuring cup. You just made buttermilk! Set aside.
  2. Measure flour into bowl and add butter. Using a pastry blender (or two knives), cut the cold butter into the flour until the mixture looks like small peas.
  3. Stir milk into the flour mixture until it is barely combined. It's okay for it to look shaggy.
  4. Sprinkle flour over a clean work surface and turn the dough out onto it. Gently fold the dough together 4 times, just until barely held together. Pat dough out to 1 inch thickness. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits by pressing straight down (twisting results in flat biscuits!) Re-pat dough until you have used it all. I got 6 biscuits, your results may vary depending on the thickness of your biscuits. Place on baking sheet, about 1 inch apart and bake on center rack of the preheated oven for 6 minutes.
  5. Remove biscuits from the oven, brush with melted butter and bake for an additional 2-4 minutes until lightly brown.
  6. Serve with Unicoi Preserves and take compliments on your biscuit baking prowess.

Our Spread Specialist’s take on Puffy Pancake, or Pannekoeken.  Cast iron is a great cooking vessel for this easy recipe, and we used a beautiful 10″ Finex Cast Iron skillet to prepare ours with.  Top with your favorite Unicoi Preserves for a delicious and different breakfast or brunch dish.

My interpretation of Pannekoeken, a delicious Dutch pancake that puffs up in the oven and rapidly deflates when serving. Baked in a beautiful Finex Cast Iron skillet and served with Unicoi Preserves, this is an easy breakfast or brunch dish that is delicious and impressive.

  2. Whisk the eggs, then add milk, flour and a pinch of salt. This will be a thin and runny batter, so don't worry and prepared to be amazed!
  3. When oven reaches 425 degrees, carefully pull the hot skillet out of the oven and add the butter. When butter has melted and is sizzling, pour the pancake batter into the pan.

  4. Place the pan back on the middle rack of your oven and set timer for 20 minutes. Pancake is done when its puffy and golden.

  5. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve with your favorite flavors of Unicoi Preserves (we chose Salted Caramel Peach and Strawberry Vanilla Spread but Vineyard Spread is delicious here too!) and your favorite breakfast meat. The saltiness of bacon is the perfect complement to Puffy Pancake and Unicoi Preserves.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 4 oz. jar Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • 1/2 cup Chopped salted peanuts
Servings: muffins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease your muffin tin or to ensure success, line the muffin tin with paper muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Stir the sugar, peanut butter and oil into the dry mixture until it looks like a sandy dough. Add the milk and eggs and mix until moistened using an electric mixer. Be careful not to overbeat, adding too much air will give your muffins tunnels and peaks. You don't want tunnels and peaks.

  3. Using an ice cream scoop, fill the muffin liners half full with the batter. Spoon 2 teaspoons of Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread into the middle of each muffin. Finish each muffin by dividing the batter over each one, making sure to cover the Strawberry Vanilla Spread.

These delicious heart shaped tarts are perfect for sharing with those you love.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 Package Laura Lynn Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 1 Jar Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Sprinkles
Servings: 8
Instructions
  1. Assemble your ingredients. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
    heart tarts
  2. Lightly flour your clean countertop. Unroll 1 pie crust and using a rolling pin, roll out slightly and seal any cracks. Then, using a 3- 1/2 inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out as many hearts as you can. Re-flour your counter top if necessary. Gather the scraps of dough into a ball, then, roll out the dough to the same thickness as previous and cut more hearts. My dough yielded 16 hearts, this will vary based on what size cutter you use. Its ideal to get an even number because each tart takes two hearts.

  3. To make your Heart Tarts, place half the hearts on your baking sheet. Then, top one heart with 1 teaspoon of Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread. Brush edges of tart lightly with water, then place a second heart on top of the first tart. With a fork, firmly press edges to seal.

  4. Using the fork, poke a few holes in the top crust of the tart to let steam escape.

  5. Place on middle rack of oven and bake 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned. These are dark brown, don't be like me, keep an eye on them. Move to wire rack to cool.

  6. Make the glaze while the Heart Tarts are cooling. Place 1/4 cup powdered sugar into a small bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon of milk and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir until smooth. Spoon the glaze over the cooled Heart Tarts, then top with sprinkles.
