79 recipes are 'digitally watermarked' in the January Issue

Hitting newsstands Dec. 28, the January/February issue of Cooking Light magazine will be the very first to feature fully scannable recipes.

So what does that mean, exactly, and how will that work? First, you’ll need to download the Digimarc Discover app for your iPhone or Android. Then, when you come across a recipe you like, just scan the photo using the app. It will recognize the recipe and automatically direct you to the recipe page on the magazine’s sister site, MyRecipes.com. Once there, you can build a recipe file and save your favorites in it, share it with friends across social networks, organize menus, and make grocery lists.

"We know our consumers are looking for practical tools to make family meal planning quick and easy; so we’re excited to provide this smart solution," Cooking Light editor Scott Mowbray said in a press release. "They can easily scan, save, shop, cook, and share with a convenient resource they always have with them — their smartphone."

Every new issue of Cooking Light from here on out will feature scannable recipes as well, and the magazine will include detailed instructions on how to make the most out of this new interactive technology.

Blackberry Turnovers

When Ruth Reichl was 22--long before she became famous as a restaurant critic, magazine editor, and author--she taught cooking at a glassblowing workshop in the forests north of Seattle. The final week she was there, the wild blackberries ripened all at once, "soft, rich, and juicy," Reichl says. She picked until her pail overflowed. Then she baked into the night. In the morning, these flaky turnovers were her parting gift to the glassblowers.


Pickling is a great way to preserve ramps, the wild spring onions that overflow at the market for a few weeks each spring. Their garlicky flavor combined with a vinegar kick adds a bright punch to all sorts of dishes. Get the recipe for Pickled Ramps » Anna Stockwell

  • 9 ounces all-purpose flour, such as Gold Medal (about 2 cups, spooned 255g)
  • 1/2 ounce sugar (about 1 tablespoon 15g)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (6g) Diamond Crystal kosher salt for table salt, use about half as much by volume or the same weight
  • 4 ounces cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 8 tablespoons 110g)
  • 9 ounces plain yogurt, straight from the fridge (about 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons 255g), see note

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat to 400°F. Should your kitchen be warmer than 75°F, please see our guide to baking in a hot kitchen before getting started the specifics are focused on pie dough, but the overall principles are true of biscuits as well.

Sift flour into a medium bowl, then add sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt whisk until well combined (this may take up to 1 minute). Add the butter, toss to break up the pieces, and smash each cube flat. Continue smashing and rubbing until the butter has mostly disappeared into a floury mix, although a few larger, Cheerio-sized pieces may remain. This can also be done with 4 or 5 pulses in a food processor, just take care not to overdo it. The prepared mix can be refrigerated up to 3 weeks in an airtight container, then used as directed below.

Add yogurt, and stir with a flexible spatula until the flour has been fully absorbed. The dough will seem rather crumbly and dry at first, but keep mixing until it finally comes together (don't worry about over-mixing until the flour has been fully incorporated, the greater concern is under-mixing). Once the dough forms a rough ball, turn out onto a lightly floured surface.

With your bare hands, gently pat the dough into a squarish shape about 1/2 inch thick, then fold in half repeat twice more for a total of 3 folds, using only enough flour to keep your hands from sticking. Finish by patting the dough to a thickness of 3/4 inch. If needed, dust away any excess flour, then cut into 1 3/4-inch rounds and arrange in a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Gather scraps into a ball, pat and fold a single time, then cut as many more biscuits as you can. The final round of scraps can be gathered and shaped into a single biscuit by hand.

Bake until the biscuits are well-risen and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let the biscuits cool about 5 minutes to help set their crumb, then serve as desired, whether alongside soups and stews or split for shortcake or breakfast sandwiches. Leftovers can be stored up to a week in an airtight container to serve, split the stale biscuits in half, brush with melted butter, arrange on a baking sheet, and broil until golden brown, then serve with jam.
