Cooking Tuesday: Apple Pie

Standard

That’s right! Today’s Tuesday soo…we’re cooking!! I thought to pick something less difficult but as delicious as the last dessert: Apple pie!! 😊
It is my dad’s favourite sweet in the world, so I though: Why not? It’s not that hard to cook, but definitely great.
( You may need the help of a friend or a parent to do it. But, it you’re skilled, you can even do it on your own!)

What we need:

Pastry for 2 crusts (recipe below)
8 cups sliced, peeled assorted baking apples – about 3 lbs. (Granny Smith, Cortland, Jonathan)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 Tablespoons butter
1 egg yolk
1 Tablespoon milk

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, toss the sliced apples with lemon juice.

2. Combine sugars, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg; add to apples and toss well to coat.

3. Fill pastry lined 9 inch pie pan with apple mixture. Dot with butter.

4. Place second crust on top of pie filling, cut slits in top of crust to vent. Seal the edges of the crust with a fork or by hand.

5. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolk and milk. Brush mixture over top crust.

6. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.

7. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 40-45 minutes more or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.

THAT’S ALL!!

Cooking Tuesday: Papanasi

Standard

Hello!! πŸ™‚

Since lately I am very full of ideas ( name it the winter originality, I don’t know…) I have decided to start a new thing going on my blog : COOKING TUESDAYS.
Yap, exactly. It is exactly what it sounds like. Every Tuesday I want to share with you the recipe of a cookie, or an interesting course, or whatever I like. Why? Easy. Because FOOD is a reason to be happy, it can sweeten your day and… Basically it’s good and no matter the day you’ve had, or the weather outside, chocolate will always be chocolate.

Today’s recipe is…..PAPANASI. I know, it sound weird. It is a traditional Romanian cookie, somehow like a donut. And it tastes like…heaven.

What you need :

-500g of Cottage Cheese
-2 Eggs
-Lemon Zest from 1 Lemon
-100g of Raisins
-1/2 Teaspoon of Sodium Bicarbonate
-1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
-2-3 Teaspoons of Vanilla Sugar ( Simply take a Vanilla Stick cut in in half and put it in a jar of sugar for a few days )
-300g of Flour ( 200g for the dumplings and 100 for the modeling itself)
-Sunflower Oil ( Enough for deep frying )
-Sour cherry Jam
-Cream

Preparation
In a large mixing bowl put together the cottage cheese,the eggs,the salt,the lemon zest,the vanilla sugar,the sodium bicarbonate and the raisins .Thoroughly mix the content of the bowl till everything is nicely spread out then add the flour ( 200g) and incorporate it into the mixture,if the mixture is too runny add a little more flower it should be fairly consistent.Spread some flower over your cooking table and with a spoon dipped in water for balls from mixture and model them into a ring by pressing on the middle first then creating a gap and rounding it off ,make sure to use flour so the dough doesn’t stick to your hands or surface.For every ring made also make a small ball of dough.Once you have done this prepare a pot with oil in order to deep fry the rings and balls till they are golden brown on each side.Serve hot powdered with caster sugar ( you can make some caster sugar from the vanilla sugar in a food processor) topped with cream and sour cherry jam.Enjoy this wonderful dessert.

Enjooooy! πŸ™‚
