What's for dessert?
« on: October 01, 2017, 10:33:14 PM »
...here's a dessert thread! I'm not sure if I'm having any tonight, but maybe I could have dark chocolate or 1905 vanilla flavor icecream.

Well, Keph, aren't you just the beginner of new threads!!!  :)

Won't be contributing much. We , unless it's a holiday or birthday don't eat desserts. But I will be reading what others eat and remember how good desserts after a meal are!

Not dessert, but almost...hubby brought home king Arthur flour, Chai and flax, organic. I think he wants homemade steel cut oat, flax and Chai bread. So that's what I am doing. Should have 8 loaves when done. It ends up 1/2 oat, flax chai, and 1/2 flour. It's terrific, but thought he put it behind him. Wrong, but certainly worth the trouble. I have toast with my morning pharmeceuticals.  So does he. Gotta have something other than acid in our guts, and homemade is infinitely better than store bought.

I wonder if there's such thing as pies made with other kinds of squash. ;D

Pecan it is then! I'm from Texas after all.

I'll have it with some 1905 vanilla icecream.

No dessert tonight here, but tomorrow is St. Therese's feast day, and celebrate we shall!  We have a (middle) namesake for her, and she is one of our homeschool patrons.  She's a favorite over here.  I will bring some desserts tomorrow :)

Do you have a recipe, SM?
I never watch 'The Doctors' show, but they had a feature today about the growing popularity of matcha everything -even popsicles!   They say the antioxidants alone are worth adding it to foods.

My sweetheart spouse truly enjoys cooking. He made this last night.
We used raw organic sugar, and skipped the confectioners sugar topping, fwiw.   Had one this morning, with strawberry jelly instead, to go with my bulletproof coffee. Dessert for breakfast!!!

Apple Tart
http://www.nickstellino.com/Recipes/Menu/Recipe/?vrec=501d

Ingredients
1 package of puff pastry thawed and cut into six rounds of approximately four inches each
6 tablespoons C&Hģ or Dominoģ sugar
6 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
6 apples peeled, cored and cut into ľ inch dice
4 tablespoons apple jelly
2 tablespoons powdered sugar       

Directions
Serves 4-6

Once the puff pastry sheets have thawed, take them out of the package and using a biscuit cutter, cut the sheets into six rounds of approximately four inches each.

In a nonstick sauce pan over medium high heat add the butter, sugar and lemon juice. Stirring continuously, cook until it forms a thick, dark caramel sauce, about three to five minutes.

Add the apple pieces to the caramel and continue to cook, stirring continuously until the apple pieces become soft, about three more minutes. Let the mixture sit until it cools off to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Line a baking dish with parchment paper and place the thawed puff pastry rounds on the parchment paper. Place two tablespoons of the cooked apple mixture in the middle of each puff pastry round leaving about a quarter inch around the filling.

Cook the rounds in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees until the puff pastry rises around the apple mixture.

In a sauce pan add the apple jelly and cook over medium heat until it becomes liquid. With a silicone pastry brush, paint the apple jelly on the side and the top of each filled, baked, puffed pastry around.

If you do it right it will give a great shine to the edges of each apple tartlet.

Top each tartlet with powder sugar, place on a serving dish and decorate with a spoonful or two of the caramel sauce on the side before you serve it.
They shall not be confounded in the evil time; and in the days of famine they shall be filled
