This pie crust is flaky and delicious! Perfect for all sorts of galette baking!
Servings: Makes 2 pie crusts
What You Need:
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted cold butter chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 cup of ice cold water
1. Add the flour, salt, sugar, and butter into a medium/large bowl and mix until crumbly like texture (I like and prefer to use my hands). The other option is to use a food processor and pulse until butter is broken up and no more large chunks remain.
2, Next add the cold water to batter and combine together until one large dough ball.
3. Divide dough in half. Freeze one half for another time and place other dough ball in the fridge until ready to bake.
4. When ready to bake line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Roll out dough into a circle but be sure to not make it too thin. Fill galette with filling and then fold the edges. Brush the edges with egg white. Bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes.
That’s it! Now you can get creative with your fillings!
Apple Or Peach Filling Recommendation:
Slice 4 medium apples or peaches unpeeled or peeled and toss in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Once mixed well place filling in prepared dough, topping off the apples or peaches with 1 tablespoon of chopped butter.
3 1/2 cups of all purpose flour plus more for dusting
4 tablespoons of salted or unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup of warm milk￼
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of light or dark brown sugar
1 packet of active dry yeast
What You Need For The Cinnamon Filling:
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
6 tablespoons of butter softened
Or Substitute cinnamon filling for Nutella
Warning: using Nutella does get messy but trust me, it’s worth it.
1. In a medium/large mixing bowl mix the 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast with the warm milk and the brown sugar. Let sit 5-10 minutes, until bubbly and foamy.
2. Add 3 ½ cups flour, salt, eggs, and butter. Mix until the flour is completely incorporated, adding a little extra flour if necessary. (I knead by hand for a good 10 mins and it works fine.)
3. Cover the bowl and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
4. In the meantime prepare your filling. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon.
5. Once dough is ready on a floured surface roll the dough out into a large rectangle, adding flour as needed. Spread the dough with 5 tablespoons softened butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
6. Fold the dough in half. Cut into 12-14 strips. Twisting each strip into a loose imperfect knot. Placing each knot onto a cookie sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
7. Bake at 375 until a little golden on the top. Eat as is or with your favorite homemade icing.
3 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter plus extra for coating skillet
1. Add the milk, eggs, water, vanilla extract, sugar, melted butter, and flour to the blender and blend for 10 seconds. (An extra pulse or 2 if there’s still a little flour stuck to the sides)
2. Set in refrigerator for 1 hour.
3. On a low medium heat, butter the pan and pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan and swirl it to evenly coat the bottom. When the edges begin to curl flip it over and allow the other side to cook (about 10 seconds).
4. Fill with desires fillings, fold, and top with powdered sugar or whip cream.
Spring time calls for lemon bars! The perfect tart, sweet treat to enjoy in some beautiful weather! This is also a great recipe to make with your little ones! Especially when pressing the dough!
Let’s get started!
What You Need:
For The Crust:
8 tablespoons of unsalted butter softened
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 cups of flour
A pinch of salt
For The Filling:
3 cups of white sugar
2 grated lemons for lemon zest
1 cup of fresh lemon juice
1 cup of flour
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350.
For the crust, mix together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until combined. Then add the flour and salt. Mix well, don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty.
Once all combined flatten the dough into a 9 by 13 glass baking dish.
Bake the crust for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browned. While crust is baking prepare your filling.
For the filling, mix together the eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and flour. Pour over hot crust and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the filling is set and not wobbly. Let cool to room temperature. Then chill in the fridge for an hour.
Dust with powdered sugar and cut into squares. Enjoy!
Tip: place lemon bars in freezer for 30 mins and once removed will be easier to cut squares!
8 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter plus additional for spreading on pans
3/4 cup of whole milk at room temperature
3 1/4 cups of all purpose flour, plus additional for dusting
1 package instant dry yeast ( 2 1/4 teaspoons )
1 1/4 teaspoons of salt
Just a bit of heavy cream (optional)
What You Need For The Filling:
1 cup packed of light or dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter
What You Need For Icing:
8oz of softened cream cheese
3 tablespoons of heavy cream
1/4 cup of unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
For the dough: in a large bowl whisk the egg yolks, whole egg, sugar, butter, and milk. Add 2 cups of the flour along with the yeast and salt; whisk until combined. Add the rest of the remaining flour (1 cup and 1/4). Begin to knead dough (will be a little sticky, add just a little bit of flour if necessary, I always add a little extra, like 1/4 extra.)Continue to knead until combined and doughy. (Dough should be stretchy. If kneading by hand, knead for about 20 mins)Lightly oil a large bowl and transfer the dough to the bowl, lightly oil the top of the dough, cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit out for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well and set aside.
Butter a 9 by 13-inch glass baking dish. On a floured surface shape the dough into a large rectangle. Brush the dough with the melted butter. Sprinkle the filling mixture over the dough, pressing the filling into the dough. Roll the dough into a tight cylinder. Using a sharp knife, slice the cylinder into 1 1/2-inch rolls; making 12 rolls. Arrange rolls cut side down in the baking dish; cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight.
Take the rolls from the refrigerator and place in an oven that is turned off. Fill a pan or pot of boiling water and set on the rack below the rolls. Close the oven door and let the rolls rise until they look slightly puffy; 30 mins or so.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Pour a little bit of heavy cream over each of the rolls, covering the bottom of the pan. (Optional; this gives a more buttery, doughy taste/texture. While without is more original)
When the oven is ready, place the rolls in the oven and bake until slightly golden on top; bake for 8 mins. Oven time may vary.
Mix together ingredients for the icing starting with whisking the cream cheese first, then adding the heavy cream, next the butter, then gently adding the sugar. Spread on cinnamon rolls. Allow to sit for 30 to 1 hour and then enjoy!
Note: whatever is not eaten make sure to refrigerate. When ready to eat pull out and allow to sit for 1 to 2 hours until at room temperature.
Additional note: try using vanilla spice eggnog instead of heavy cream! It’s delish!
