Pecan Pie Recipe - Ingredients

For the countertop

1 tablespoon very cold water

For the filling

For the dough, the butter must be very cold. Cut it into cubes and keep it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Put it in the flour blender and mix until you get a sandy dough. Add salt, egg and very cold water (possibly with ice). Mix until you get a homogeneous dough, which you take out of the blender, wrap it in cling film and put it in the fridge for an hour.

Cheesecake with avocado, dates and pecans

We invite you to a cheesecake without cheese. We thought first of all about those with lactose intolerance and those who, for one reason or another, do not want dairy in their food. We only tell the others: when you mix avocados with pecans, almonds and dates, you don't even think about milk.

Banana and pecan muffins

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C and grease the molds with plenty of Lurpak®.

Sift together the flour, spices, baking powder and salt.

Beat the sugar and Lurpak® together in a blender until you get a light, fluffy composition, starting at low speed, gradually increasing to the highest level. Add the eggs and continue beating on medium speed for 2 minutes.

Gently add the dry ingredients until a thick, creamy paste is obtained, and then incorporate the walnuts and banana pulp and divide the mixture to form it.

Sprinkle pecans over each muffin and bake on the middle grill for 15-20 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean, without dough, when you put it in the center of the muffin. Leave the trays for 10 minutes and then empty them on a grill to allow them to cool.

Put a small amount of icing over the muffins (optional), and then add a few edible flowers, candied coconut, pecans or banana chips over the chilled muffins.

Fresh croissants with chokeberry jam

(photo source & amp ideas for aronia recipes:

They are tender, sweet and melt in your mouth. This is how we can describe the croissants with chokeberry jam, which disappear quickly from the plate. They have a special taste and are to the liking of any sweet lover.

You can prepare them as follows.

Ingredients used:

  • 250g flour
  • 125g cream (minimum 20% fat)
  • 3 yolks
  • 150g butter (minimum 80% fat) or 100g lard
  • Salt
  • Vanilla essence
  • 300g chokeberry jam OR 200g chokeberry jam and 100g walnut
  • 100g vanilla sugar.

Necessary steps:

  1. Put in a bowl diced butter, egg yolks, a generous pinch of salt, cream and vanilla essence. Add all the flour over them.
  2. Mix either with the robot or by hand until the ingredients are homogeneous. (Do not knead vigorously because it will harden when baked.)
  3. Wrap the dough in plastic and leave it to cool for an hour or even overnight. To cool as quickly as possible, we give it a flat shape.
  4. For the filling we prepare the chokeberry jam. We can mix the jam with the walnut. (The ground walnut absorbs moisture and does not allow the jam to flow from the croissants, adding a special flavor.)
  5. Remove the dough from the cold and leave it on the kitchen table for 30 minutes. Divide it into 4 and spread, one by one, each portion in a very thin sheet.
  6. From each sheet we get 8 croissants. The dough should be as thin as possible. The circle will have a diameter of about 35 cm. With a knife we ​​cut first in half, then in quarters and again every quarter in half. We thus obtain 8 triangles. We put the filling on one end and start rolling.
  7. Roll so that we pass the dough over the filling, then with our fingers we press the ends so that it cannot come out. Do the same in front, then bend the heads slightly and roll until a croissant is formed, which we pull the heads in front.
  8. Place the croissants on a tray covered with baking paper.
  9. Put them in the preheated oven at 170 ° C and leave them for 15 minutes. (If we make them smaller, we decrease the baking time. If we make them bigger, we increase the time a little.)
  10. Before baking, prepare a bowl with vanilla powdered sugar. When we take them out of the oven, with the help of a spatula we place them directly in the vanilla powdered sugar. (We don't leave them to cool at all. The colder they get, the more the powdered sugar will stick to the outside.)
  11. The croissants are placed on a plate or, if we want to keep them for several days, we put them in boxes with lids.
  12. We have a delicious dessert that will put a smile on anyone's face.

Ready to make these delicious croissants? Then you need their secret ingredient: chokeberry jam.

Wash the oranges with hot water, dry them and grate the peel. Remove the remaining peel with a sharp knife, so that you also take the white skin that divides the slices. Extract the slices of orange pulp in a bowl and squeeze the juice from the inner shell in another bowl. Remove the fillets from a small bowl and squeeze the juice from the inner skins in a small bowl by hand.

Mix the saffron in a small bowl with orange juice and leave for 10 minutes. Scrape the vanilla pod. Mix the vanilla extract, orange juice and orange peel with the cheese. Set aside for at least 30 minutes to develop the flavors.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 degrees (heat up and down). Cut the almonds and mix them with oatmeal, chia seeds and sunflower seeds. Heat the coconut oil with the maple syrup and add over the cereal mixture. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and a pinch of salt and mix well. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the mixture becomes crispy and golden brown. Stir occasionally.

Caramelize the sugar in a small pan. Add the pecans and cover with burnt sugar. Allow to cool on a piece of baking paper.

To serve, arrange the quark cream with orange and saffron in 4 dessert bowls. Garnish with orange slices and sprinkle over the müsli. At the end add the caramelized pecans and garnish with fresh mint.

  4. With wet machines, shape small balls the size of ping-pong balls from the mixture of br & acircnza.
  5. After the water has boiled, turn the heat to low and add the papanas to the pot and cover the bottom of the pot with them.

Recommendation: Chestnut butter is not often found in Romanian stores. That's why you can buy chestnuts from the supermarket, which you bake, clean and blender. This way, you will get a chestnut cream. Optionally you can add a little natural sweetener, maple syrup or agave for small drops or honey for older ones.
