Adapted slightly from Vicki's Vegan Kitchen (Square One (2011)). This is a super tender, but easy to work with pastry dough that can be modified for savoury tarts by simply removing the sugar and nutmeg. This recipe is best suited for bottom crusts, but rolled thinly it can be used as a topper too. This is also delicious made with sweet potatoes, especially for apple pie.
The crust comes from an Emeril recipe for a mango cream pie, but I wanted to keep this separate so I don't forget about the crust alone. I like it in the mango cream pie, but think it would also be awesome for making a coconut cream pie.
England's Cheshire Pie, a hearty combination of boneless pork loin and cider-moistened apples in a short-crust pastry dough, is the inspiration for this sausage and apple pastry. Serve this warm, with fruit salad, at breakfast or brunch. Or heat some up for Sunday night supper, where it goes wonderfully well with a plain green salad. This isn't a savory meat pie but has sweetness from the apples and cider.
This is part of a recipe in Bon Appetit. After making it I found it is not a good crust for a sweet pie. However it is great for savory pies. Original recipe had 10 tablespoons of butter, I reduced it.
Nellie and Joe's Famous Key Lime Juice comes from Key West. One time I forgot to separate the eggs - pie was fine but no meringue....SO I just sprinkled coconut on top when serving and it was Wonderful!!!
On one of my many cookbook /recipe searches , I found a cookbook called Americana Cookery. I liked the name , but I loved some of the recipes in it even more. Thought I might place some of them here for safe keeping and to share
I wish I could recall where this came from but it is so long ago I have forgotten. Whatever, it is a new twist on Pumpkin Pie and I enjoy it because it is not overly sweet and the liqueur and molasses gives it an interesting flavor. Granted, at this time of year, what we don't need is another pumpkin recipe but here goes anyway - enjoy.
This is a spectacular cranberry tart with a mascarpone filling and chocolate crust! Cranberry topping and mascarpone filling can be made ahead & put together the night or a few hours before serving. Cooking time includes chill time
