Apple-Cranberry-Currant Pie with French Topping

Post  justmecookin on Thu Aug 07, 2008 8:24 pm

Apple-Cranberry-Currant Pie with French Topping

1/4 cup brandy
1/4 cup currants
1 1/2 cups fresh or thawed frozen cranberries
About 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
6 tablespoons plus 1 cup unbleached or regular all- purpose flour
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 cups sliced peeled Granny Smith apples (about 2 1/4 lb.)
10-inch pie pastry for a single-crust pie
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter or margarine, cut into chunks

In a small bowl, combine brandy and currants. Cover and let stand until currants are plump, at least 1 hour or up to 1 day. Sort cranberries and discard any that are bruised or decayed. Rinse and drain berries.

In a large bowl, mix 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar, 6 tablespoons flour, orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. With a slotted spoon, lift currants from brandy; reserve brandy. Add currants, cranberries, and apples to sugar mixture and mix well. Taste and add more granulated sugar if desired. Pour filling into unbaked 10-inch pie pastry in pan. Drizzle evenly with reserved brandy.

In another bowl, mix 1 cup flour and the brown sugar. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender or rub with your fingers until mixture forms small lumps. Sprinkle topping evenly over filling. Set pie in a foil-lined 12-inch pizza pan or 10- by 15-inch baking pan.

Bake on the bottom rack of a 375░ oven until juices bubble around edges and through topping, 55 to 65 minutes. If pie browns too quickly (check after 30 minutes), cover loosely with foil. Set pie, uncovered, on a rack until cool to touch, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Cut into wedges. Makes 10 to 12 servings

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350║. To prepare crust, combine the first 3 ingredients, tossing well. Press into the bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350║ for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on a wire rack.

To prepare filling, combine 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and dash of salt in a medium saucepan; whisk in milk and chocolate. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Gradually add 1/2 cup chocolate mixture to egg yolks, stirring constantly with a whisk. Return egg mixture to pan. Cook over medium heat until thick (about 4 minutes), stirring constantly. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread mixture into prepared crust. Cover surface of chocolate mixture with plastic wrap.

Reduce oven temperature to 325║.

To prepare meringue, place the egg whites, cream of tartar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer at high speed until foamy. Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, beating just until blended. Remove plastic wrap from filling. Spread meringue evenly over filling, sealing to edge of crust.

Bake at 325║ for 25 minutes. Cool 1 hour on a wire rack. Chill for 3 hours or until pie is set. Makes 12 servings

Key Lime Tart

Post  justmecookin on Tue Aug 12, 2008 9:00 am

Key Lime Tart

Before pasteurized egg whites were widely available, meringues were made with raw egg whites, which required extended baking to reach the recommended safe temperature. A common result was a watery meringue. Using a pasteurized product reduces the baking time to just long enough for the meringue to become a beautiful golden brown.

Crust:
3/4 cup cake flour
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Dash of salt
2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons ice water
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar

Filling:
4 teaspoons grated lime rind
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
4 large pasteurized egg yolks
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Meringue:
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 large pasteurized egg whites
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

To prepare crust, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Place flour, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and salt in a food processor; pulse 2 times or until combined. Add butter and oil; pulse 5 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal. Drizzle flour mixture with water and vinegar; pulse 10 times or just until combined. Gently press mixture into a 3-inch circle on plastic wrap, and cover and chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425░.

Slightly overlap 2 sheets of plastic wrap on a slightly damp surface. Unwrap and place chilled dough on plastic wrap. Cover with 2 additional sheets of overlapping plastic wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into a 10-inch circle. Fit dough, plastic wrap side up, into a 9-inch round removable-bottom tart pan.

Remove remaining plastic wrap. Press dough against bottom and sides of pan. Pierce bottom of dough with a fork. Line bottom of dough with a piece of parchment paper; arrange pie weights on paper. Bake at 425░ for 16 minutes or until edge is lightly browned. Remove pie weights and parchment paper; bake an additional 5 minutes or until bottom of crust is lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 350░.

To prepare filling, combine rind, juice, egg yolks, and milk, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Pour into prepared crust. Bake at 350░ for 15 minutes or until set. Remove tart from oven; place on a wire rack.

Increase oven temperature to 425░.

To prepare meringue, place cream of tartar and egg whites in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until foamy. Add 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form; beat in vanilla. Spread meringue evenly over filling, sealing to edge of crust. Make peaks with the back of a spoon (shown here). Bake at 425░ for 4 minutes or until golden brown. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Makes 8 servings

Nectarine Tart

Post  justmecookin on Tue Aug 12, 2008 9:09 am

Nectarine Tart

1/2 (15-oz.) package refrigerated piecrusts
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 nectarines, cut in wedges
1/4 cup honey

Preheat oven to 425░. Fit piecrust into a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom; trim off excess piecrust along edges. Line crust with aluminum foil, and fill with pie weights or dried beans.

Bake at 425░ for 8 minutes. Remove weights and foil, and bake 3 to 4 more minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, and cool on a wire rack 20 minutes or until completely cool.

Whisk together sugar and next 3 ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, 8 to 10 minutes or until thickened. (Mixture should be a chilled-pudding-like thickness and will just begin to bubble and be thick enough to hold soft peaks when whisk is lifted.) Remove from heat; whisk in almond extract, and immediately spoon into cooled tart shell. Cover with plastic wrap touching the surface, and chill 4 hours.

Arrange nectarine slices decoratively over top of tart. Microwave honey in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 15 seconds or until warmed; brush evenly over nectarines. Makes 8 servings

Pumpkin Streusel Pie

Post  justmecookin on Tue Aug 12, 2008 9:49 am

Pumpkin Streusel Pie

A classic pumpkin pie with a streusel topping, with pastry leaves around the edge then set a few on top. If making the leaves, double the pastry recipe. Roll out half as directed for crust; roll other half into a 1/8-inch-thick round and use a cookie cutter to make shapes, or place a leaf on dough and cut around it with a small, sharp knife. If making pie up to 1 day ahead, cover and chill.

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
2 large eggs, beaten to blend
10-inch pie pastry for a single-crust pie
Walnut streusel

In a bowl, mix granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and ginger. Add pumpkin, milk, and eggs; whisk until well blended. Pour mixture into unbaked 10-inch pie pastry in pan. Sprinkle walnut streusel evenly over filling.

Bake on the bottom rack of a 375░ oven until center barely jiggles when pan is gently shaken, 35 to 40 minutes. Set on a rack until cool to touch, about 2 hours. Cut into wedges. Makes 10 to 12 servings

10-inch Pie Pastry

In a bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups unbleached or regular all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add 1/4 cup (2 oz.) cold butter or margarine, cut into chunks, and 1/4 cup cold solid shortening, cut into chunks (or omit butter and use 1/2 cup shortening). With a pastry blender or your fingers, cut in the fats or rub with your fingers until mixture forms pea-size crumbs.

Sprinkle 3 tablespoons cold water over crumbs and mix with your hands until evenly moistened. Gently squeeze about 1/4 cup of the dough into a ball; if it won't hold together, crumble lump back into bowl, sprinkle with 1 more tablespoon water, and mix again until evenly moistened.

With lightly floured hands, form dough into a ball. Dust ball lightly with flour; flatten into a round about 3/4 inch thick, pressing edges to make smooth.

On a lightly floured surface, with a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough firmly but gently in short strokes from the center outward to form a round 1/8 inch thick and about 14 inches wide; lift and turn dough occasionally, dusting underneath with more flour. If edges split while rolling, press them back toward the center to make smooth.

Fold dough round in half, lift gently without stretching, and lay folded edge across the center of a 10-inch pie pan. Unfold and ease dough into pan. Trim edge evenly 1 inch beyond pan rim; reserve scraps for other uses or discard. Fold edge under itself flush with rim; flute decoratively. Cover crust and chill until ready to use. Makes 10-inch single crust

Walnut Streusel

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

In a bowl, combine brown sugar, rolled oats, chopped walnuts, flour, butter or margarine, ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg. Mix until crumbly. Makes about 2 cups

Apple-Pear-Cranberry Pie

Post  justmecookin on Tue Aug 12, 2008 10:46 am

Apple-Pear-Cranberry Pie

Because fruit pies require a long baking time, the streusel topping for this pie is added in the final minutes of baking to prevent it from overbrowning. To keep the apple filling from drying out as it bakes, a foil tent is placed over the pie, acting like a top crust. Several slits cut in the foil release excess steam, and the fruit retains its moisture and flavor.

Crust
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled, cut up
3 tablespoons shortening
4 to 5 tablespoons ice water

Filling
6 cups Jonagold, Braeburn or Fuji apples, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch slices (about 4 large apples)
2 cups Anjou or Bartlett pears, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch slices (about 2 large pears)
1 cup dried cranberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, chilled, cut up

Topping
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled, cut up

In large bowl, stir together 1 1/2 cups flour and salt. With pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in 5 tablespoons butter and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some pea-sized pieces. Add 4 tablespoons of the water; stir until dough begins to form, adding additional water 1 teaspoon at a time, if needed. Shape into flat round; cover. Refrigerate 1 hour.

On lightly floured surface, roll dough into 12-inch round. Line 9 1/2-inch pie pan with dough; trim dough to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pan. Turn edges of dough under, even with edge of pan; crimp. Freeze 20 to 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 425░. Meanwhile, in large bowl, toss together apples, pears, cranberries and lemon juice. In small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg. Add to bowl with fruit; toss. Spoon into chilled pie crust. Dot fruit with 1 tablespoon butter. Cover pan securely with foil; make 3 or 4 (2-inch) slits in foil to vent. Place on baking sheet. Bake 1 hour.

While pie is baking, place walnuts, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in food processor; pulse to combine. Add 3/4 cup flour and 6 tablespoons butter; pulse until combined and butter is finely chopped.

Remove foil from pie; evenly spread topping over fruit. Reduce temperature to 400░. Bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 8 servings
