Post  justmecookin on Fri Feb 20, 2009 11:46 am

Double-Cherry Pies

1 cup dried sweet cherries
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (16-ounce) bag frozen sour cherries, thawed and drained
1 tablespoon butter
2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 Sweet Cream Cheese Dough circles
1/4 cup white chocolate baking chips

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan; cook over medium heat 7 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Remove from heat. Add butter, stirring until butter melts. Stir in cornstarch and vanilla. Cool slightly.

Working with 1 Sweet Cream Cheese Dough circle at a time, remove plastic wrap from dough. Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Spoon about 2 tablespoons cherry mixture into center of circle.

Fold dough over filling; press edges together with a fork or fingers to seal. Place pie on a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Repeat procedure with remaining Sweet Cream Cheese Dough circles and remaining cherry mixture. Freeze 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425°. Remove pies from freezer. Pierce top of each pie once with a fork. Place baking sheet on bottom rack in oven. Bake at 425° for 19 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and filling is bubbly. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Place chocolate chips in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until chips are soft. Knead bag until smooth. Snip a tiny hole in corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over cooled pies. Makes 12 servings

Sweet Cream Cheese Dough
2 cups all-purpose flour (about 9 ounces)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup (2 ounces) chilled 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
4 to 5 tablespoons ice water

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor; pulse 3 times or until combined. Add chilled butter, cream cheese, and cider vinegar; pulse 4 times. Add ice water through food chute, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing just until combined (do not form a ball). (Mixture may appear crumbly but will stick together when pressed between fingers.)

Place half of dough into a 1-cup measuring cup, pressing to compact dough. Remove dough from cup, and form into a ball. Divide ball into 6 equal portions. Repeat procedure with remaining dough. Cover and chill 15 minutes.

Place each dough portion between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Roll each dough portion, still covered, into a 5-inch circle; chill until ready to use. Makes 12 servings

S'mores Pie

Post  justmecookin on Sun Apr 19, 2009 8:10 am

S'mores Pie

Chocolate Sauce:
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon brandy
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
2 1/2 tablespoons corn syrup
2 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream

Graham Cracker Crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons sugar
4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 tablespoons honey

Meringue:
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 packets of Knox powdered gelatin
2 1/2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 1/4 cups sugar
4 egg whites
Pinch of cream of tartar

Assemble Pie:
1/4 cup toasted chopped almonds
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips

For the chocolate sauce: Pour an inch of water into a large saucepot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Turn heat down to a simmer. In a medium bowl, combine chocolate, butter, brandy, Grand Marnier and corn syrup and place the bowl over the simmering pot of water. Stir frequently and once ingredients are melted, remove bowl from heat and stir in cream. Set aside.

For the graham cracker crust: In a large bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, butter and honey until well combined. Press the mixture evenly into a 10-inch pie tin. Spread about a 1/2 cup of the chocolate sauce over the crust. Set aside.

For the meringue: Combine 1/2 tablespoon of cold water with the vanilla extract in a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the vanilla mixture and set aside.

Combine 1/2 cup of water, corn syrup and sugar in a heavy bottomed pot and bring to a boil. Place a candy thermometer in the sugar mixture and cook until the temperature reaches 240° degrees. This is known as the soft ball stage.

While the sugar mixture is cooking, whip the egg whites and cream of tartar in an electric mixer until they form soft peaks. When the sugar reaches 240°, remove from the heat and carefully pour over whipped egg whites while the mixer is on low speed. Add dissolved gelatin mixture and mix on medium high speed until well incorporated. The meringue should be warm and hold soft peaks.

To assemble the pie: Preheat oven to 450°. Spread the almonds over the bottom of the pie crust, followed by 1/4 cup of the semisweet chocolate chips. Pour about 1/3 of the meringue over the nuts and chocolate chips.

Drizzle remaining chocolate sauce across the meringue, sprinkle remaining chocolate chips. Finish off with remaining meringue, mounding it toward the center with an offset spatula to create a domed effect.

With a hot knife, divide pie into 6 equal slices. Place the slices on a sheet pan and toast in the oven, about 5 minutes or until the meringue is golden brown. Serve right away. Serves 6

Classic Cherry Pie

Post  justmecookin on Thu Jun 04, 2009 11:45 am

Classic Cherry Pie

Dough:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
2 1/2 sticks butter
1 large egg

Filling:
5 cups fresh sweet cherries, pitted (or frozen cherries, thawed and drained)
3 tbsp. quick-cooking tapioca
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/8 tsp. salt

To make dough: Place flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment; combine on low speed. Cut butter into small cubes; add to bowl. Mix on low until butter resembles pea-size balls; then, while mixer is running, add 1/4 cup very cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix until ingredients just come together. If dough won't quite combine, add an extra tablespoon water.

Divide dough in half. Shape each piece into a flat, round disk. Roll each between 2 pieces of parchment or waxed paper until dough is 1/8-inch thick. Chill (in paper), lying flat, for at least 1 hour before using.

To make filling: Place cherries in a bowl. Toss with tapioca, sugar, and salt; let sit for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425°. Remove dough from refrigerator and place on a countertop. Remove top piece of parchment from 1 sheet, and lay it dough side down in a 9-inch pie pan. Pull the other piece of paper off, and let dough sit for a few minutes to soften. When it has become pliable, gently press it into pan. Trim edges, but leave a 1/2-inch overhang.

Work with other dough sheet to prepare lattice top. Peel off top piece of paper and immediately place it back on dough. Flip dough over; remove and discard the other piece of paper. Cut dough into 1/2-inch strips.

Pour filling into pie shell. Lay half of dough strips evenly across the top, keeping a 1/4 to 1/2-inch gap between strips. Form a lattice by weaving the remaining strips perpendicular to the first layer (again keeping a 1/4 to 1/2-inch gap between strips).

Trim excess dough around rim so edges of lattice match up with the 1/2-inch overhang of bottom crust. Dust your fingers with flour, then pinch top and bottom layers of dough together to form a ridged crust. Continue crimping dough around entire pie shell, flouring your fingers as needed.

Place pie pan on a baking sheet, and set it on a rack in bottom third of oven. Bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, beat egg in a bowl. Pull pie out of oven and brush egg on crust. Return to oven and lower heat to 350°; bake for 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and fruit is bubbling and thickened. Remove from oven. Allow to cool at least 1 hour before serving. Serves 8 or 9
