Homemade Mince Pie with Crumbly Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
My hubby asked for mince pie, wasn't familiar, tried this. This is apple/plumped raisin pie with a streusel topping. The raisins are sooo plump!! A bit of a rum raisin taste, without rum. Quite yummy! It was kind of a lot of work, mostly dicing. Subbed 1/2 lemon,1/2 orange dried jarred peel so I didn't waste a dollar on a grapefruit peel. I used 1/2 granny, 1/2 red and added 1/4 cup brown sugar. Skip the granny smith all together, too bitter for this....go red apple. Sooo...good pie, 2-3 hours work, if this is the kind of pie you're craving:)

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
Roll between saran wrap or parchment paper, or it's a very sticky roll. This will completely eliminate the rolling problem. Take the saran wrapped dough to the dish, balance on hand, take the top saran wrap off after it's in the dish!!

Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
Sensational! Hubby said it was the best meal I've ever cooked. I put some chicken with a cream cheese/tomato sauce in it with some spreadable cheese. Make no mistake though, it is WILDLY labor intensive and time consuming!! The sticker is he wants me to make it weekly. Whew, I'm bushed.
