I am thinking of adapting this to a tart for Christmas dinner -- using the shortbread crust, caramel filling and adding a touch of cream to change the chocolate shell into a ganache. Any one else attempted this? Suggestions? Are the cookies too crisp to cut? will they crumble?
@piefreak - I have a 10 inch pan too -- I just make 1 and a half recipes, and there is plenty to spare (I like a little extra too so I don't have to worry about ragged edges).
@kenji - I have kosher relatives. How awful would it be to use all shortening in the recipe? I'd love to be able to serve a decent pie after a meat meal.
PS Best easiest pie crust ever. Only time it ever failed was when I hadn't made it for a few months and didn't read the instructions fully.
Oh lord -- I am a baker so usually pie or cake. Most recently key lime pie and blueberry pie. Pies for summer, cakes for winter!
Purple Steak! (wrong order but it just sounds so fun!)
pumpkin. i like it as a flan or baked custard, but something about the custard and thick gluey crust is just not appealing.
Potato Rolls - the dough is good in the fridge for over a week, and nothing amazes a crowd like fresh baked rolls!
Doubled an entire recipe of cookies. Except the flour!
I am currently in the process of making a 3 tiered "wedding" cake for a baby shower -- does that count?
I am thinking that Dulce De Leche is going to be a winner - I am a sucker for all things caramel!
It is seasonal. Summer needs a lemon sorbet. Midwinter something with tons of caramel and chocolate crunchies.
Cheesecake -- Golden Girls style!
Prime Rib Roast -- What else is there?
Winter is champagne / sparkling wine season! Thrown in some cranberries for thanskgiving, or ginger liquer any time!
The works! More is more for my dad!
A beautiful baked potato with all the trimmings.
"Daddy Burgers" -- what Dad grilled on Sunday afternoon when I was small. Not sure what it was -- but they were always the best!
My wife's is definitely Katz's. I will take her advice!
Please check the recipe -- you currently do not list butter as an ingredient for the dough.
I am with the other DC-er who hasn't made it to Ray's Hellburger yet .. I think we may be the only two!
Lindt White Chocolate truffles! Or most belgian style white chocolate and fruit truffles
Creme fraiche, bacon, onions, gruyere -- Tarte Flambe!
sauteed with spatzle and cheese .. mmm käsespätzle!
Bell Peppers -- the shape makes it a challenge!
