Clafouti is a French dessert, half pudding and half cake; very easy to prepare. Fresh cherries are the classic filling; however, if these are not available, use canned tart cherries, (not pie filling), figs, prunes, or halved dried apricots. Nut Warning - Almonds and Almond extract. Eliminate these ingredients from the recipe if your have an intolerance to nuts.
Bubby is a common Yiddish term of affection. It is also the name of a popular local restaurant with outlets in Brooklyn and Manhattan. This is their rendition of one of my favorite desserts. Waiting for rhubarb season to try it.
This easy, old fashioned family recipe goes back more than 5 generations - from Kate Kelly of Kanata, Ontario! Make your own pastry base or buy a ready made shell to save time. You can aso make this with a full pastry or lattice top. Try adding a tsp of orange zest to the filling - its delicious!
I got this recipe from my sister-in-law when I got married and my husband's aunt had a cherry tree. It is our favorite! Prep time does not include the time it takes to pit the cherries or make the pie crust. ;) I use the Pie Crust recipe in the Fanny Farmer Baking Book. Recipe #13619 is the recipe for 2 8-inch crust. (I've found I have to refrigerate it for the pie filling to firm up and not be "soupy" when it has cooled. Once it has completely chilled, you can store it at room temperature and it doesn't lose its firmness. Or, store it in the fridge and warm it in the microwave a little bit before serving it with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.)
Another web find. This biscotti has a fresh taste with orange zest, dried cranberries, white chocolate, and pistachios. Very light and tasty. The combination of flavors is perfect. You may want to add some orange extract or doubled the vanilla extract, or even use some lemon extract. You may need to adjust your oven temperature depending on what type of oven you use. Use an electric knife, it cuts through these biscotti like butter.
