Rosie was my grandmother. It was a long time favorite we thought was lost for the past 20 years. Found her recipe by accident last year. What a way to remember her and it's now a favorite of the next generation. I made up the prep/cook time since I never timed it.
NOTE: Do not use fresh pineapple in this recipe. Fresh pineapple has much more acid than canned pineapple and the pie filling will not stay firm. Hope you enjoy the pie (It's still my favorite!)
Ran across this recipe just before Thanksgiving. WOW! It will now be on my desert table every year. (I may take it to a pot luck or two as well). Fantastically delicious and easy to make. Recipe is originally from Martin Sheen's daughter (Rene Estevez), who used to be a pastry chef.
aka: 'How to Make the Perfect Cheesecake' This recipe includes very detailed instructions for preparation which is the key to any great cheesecake. *This is my signature recipe that I have spent many many hours perfecting the
ingredients and techniques for. This is not 'NY Style' but real 'NY Cheesecake'.
The end result is a wonderful cheesecake that some will tell you to eat with a towel, because it's like an 'O' in your mouth.
This classic is usually made with blueberries but sweet plums make a delicious alternative. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or yogurt. Although cook time says 50 minutes it could be anywhere between 40-50 minutes, so check after 40 minutes. For the batter, be sure to have eggs and butter at room temperature.
No bake cheesecakes are called "rare cheese cake" in Japan. Rare cheesecakes are chilled and served with fresh fruits or fruit sauces. It's easy to make this dessert at home. Plan ahead -- Cheesecake requires 3 hours refrigeration time.
As adults we expect more. These are not your ordinary cupcakes. This cupcake supplies more flavor per bite. Using the coconut milk (DO NOT use Cream of coconut), instead of whole milk will help to intensify the flavor. This recipe comes from Cuisine at Home. Enjoy!
From "Cook's Country from America's Test Kitchen," episode 107, "Easy As Pie." For best results, use recipe #335191 (from the same episode). If it lasts, pie will hold in refrigerator 3-4 days, well-wrapped.
