Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Post  justmecookin on Mon Sep 29, 2008 9:38 am

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Pastry
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter
6 tbsp cold vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp fine salt
4 to 5 tbsp ice water

Pumpkin Pie
2 cups canned pumpkin
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 tbsp fancy molasses
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp fine salt
3 large eggs
1 1/3 cups whipping cream
3 tbsp brandy or orange liqueur

Spiced Whipped Cream
1 cup whipping cream
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch nutmeg

For pastry, freeze butter and shortening for 30 minutes. Combine flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Using a box grater, grate the butter and shortening into flour. Toss this mixture with your fingers to coat the fats, breaking up lumps with your fingers as you go.

The dough should be a rough, crumbly texture and take on a slight yellow tone. Add 3 Tbsp of the water and mix with a spatula or wooden spoon to bring dough together, adding a little more water if needed. Shape dough into a disc and chill for an hour before rolling.

Pumpkin Pie: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to just under ¼-inch thick. Dust the bottom of a 9-inch pie shell with flour and line with dough. Trim edges, keeping scraps to roll and cut for garnish, if desired. Chill while preparing filling.

For filling, whisk pumpkin with brown sugar, molasses spices and salt. Whisk in eggs, then whipping cream and brandy or orange liqueur. Pour into chilled pie shell.

Bake for 10 minutes, then lower temperature to 350 degrees F. and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until filling puffs just a little around edges but still has a bit of jiggle in center when moved. Allow to cool to room temperature, then chill completely.

To serve pumpkin pie warm, it is recommended to bake and chill completely, then re-warm in a 300 degrees oven for 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with spiced whipped cream.

Spiced Whipped Cream: Whip cream with sugar and spices until medium peaks form. Dollop over the pieces of pie. Makes 68 servings

Roasted Turkey with Herb Gravy

Post  justmecookin on Mon Sep 29, 2008 10:22 am

Roasted Turkey with Herb Gravy

Roasted Turkey
1 12 lb. young turkey
8 oz diced pancetta
8 large shallots, sliced lengthwise
2 tbsp butter
Sprigs of thyme, whole and chopped
Sprigs of sage, whole and chopped
Sprigs of rosemary, whole and chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tbsp sherry vinegar
Coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Butter, for rubbing the outside of turkey
Sprigs of herbs, for garnish, optional
Fresh Herb Gravy
1 cup dry white wine
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water

Roasted Turkey: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add pancetta to medium saute pan over medium heat. Sautee until fat begins to render, about 4 minutes. Remove pancetta and reserve.

To the same pan over medium heat, add butter, shallots and chopped herbs. Saute shallots until translucent, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar and continue to saute shallots 2 more minutes or until lightly browned. Add the vinegar and remove from heat and stir. Season with freshly ground pepper. Combine shallots with pancetta.

Let cool to room temperature. Remove giblets and turkey neck from turkey cavity. For additional flavour to pan drippings roast turkey neck in roasting pan with turkey. Remove any pockets of fat from bird cavity. Thoroughly rinse with cold water. Pat turkey dry with paper towel.

Run your hands gently between skin and meat of the turkey breast and legs to separate skin from meat. Do so carefully to prevent the skin from tearing. Gently slide about ½ of the shallot mixture and some fresh chopped herbs between skin and meat of the breast and legs.

Rub bird with butter and season with salt and pepper. Fill bird cavity with remaining shallot mixture and whole sprigs of herbs. Truss legs together with butcher’s twine to maintain shape while roasting.

Roast bird, breast side up, in a large, lightly oiled roasting pan on the lower portion of oven at 350 degrees for first 30 minutes then reduce heat to 325 degrees. Continue to roast, basting often, until thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh reads 180 degrees about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

Remove remaining shallot mixture from cavity of turkey and place in roasting pan. Transfer turkey to serving platter. Cover loosely with foil and keep warm and let rest 15 to 20 minutes before serving. Garnish platter with fresh sprigs of herbs if desired. Make gravy while turkey is resting.

Fresh Herb Gravy: Place roasting pan with pan drippings and shallot mixture over medium heat on stovetop. Add white wine. Scrape pan dripping on the bottom of the pan to incorporate into wine. Bring to a boil and simmer until reduced slightly, about 10 minutes.

Stir cornstarch into 1/2 cup cold water until blended and pour into roasting pan. Whisk briskly over medium heat until bubbling and slightly thickened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and serve gravy with turkey. Makes 8 servings

Post  justmecookin on Thu Oct 16, 2008 9:46 am

Chocolate-Coconut Candy Bar Cake

Candy Bars
2 2/3 cups flaked coconut
1 2/3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cake
3 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped almonds
1 cup flaked coconut

Creamy Filling
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

Frosting
4 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup hot water

Heat oven to 350°. Grease bottoms and sides of three 9-inch round cake pans with shortening; lightly flour. In medium bowl, mix 2 2/3 cups coconut, 1 2/3 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup butter, 2 tablespoons hot water and 1 teaspoon vanilla with spoon; divide evenly into 16 pieces.

Shape each piece into bar, about 1 1/2 inches long. (Mixture will be sticky; butter hands if desired.) Place bars on waxed paper. In medium bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form; set aside.

In another medium bowl, beat 2 cups granulated sugar, 1/2 cup butter and the shortening with electric mixer on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating after each addition until blended.

Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla and the coconut extract. In small bowl, mix buttermilk and baking soda until baking soda is dissolved. Alternately add flour and buttermilk mixture to sugar mixture, beating after each addition until smooth. Stir in almonds and 1 cup coconut. Fold in egg whites. Pour into pans.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

In medium bowl, beat all filling ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Fill layers with filling. Arrange candy bars evenly around edge of cake; cover and freeze at least 2 hours.

In medium bowl, mix all frosting ingredients except 1/3 cup hot water with spoon. Stir in hot water until blended; add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time until spreadable.

Spoon frosting by tablespoonfuls over candy bars just until bars are covered. Spread remaining frosting on side and top of cake (thin frosting with additional water if needed to spread easily). Makes 16 servings
