Sopapilla Cheesecake Recipe. Cinnamon Sugar Fried Apple Sticks Recipe. Daring Bakers: Piece Montee « Full Time Foodie. I highly recommend baking with best friends some time. It’s quite something. That’s what made this challenge the most fun yet. If my life weren’t in danger of being attacked by three hungry girls I would post pictures of exactly how much fun we had “drizzling” (more like drenching) the cream puffs with chocolate glaze.

And waiting for the glaze to set was most definitely not an option. Not with my friends there. The moment after the pictures were taken the piece monte was demolished into little more than a few chocolate drizzles and a few blobs of espresso pastry cream. Come on, how could you resist this for more than a few seconds? Thanks so much Cat from Little Miss Cupcake!! Pate a Choux (Yield: About 28) ¾ cup (175 ml.) water6 Tbsp.

The Sugar Scientist: Cannoli-oli-oli (Daring Bakers)

She chose the Italian Pastry, Cannolo (Cannoli is plural), using the cookbooks Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich and The Sopranos Family Cookbook by Allen Rucker; recipes by Michelle Scicolone, as ingredient/direction guides. She added her own modifications/changes, so the recipe is not 100% verbatim from either book. I had mixed feelings about this months DB’s challenge. On one hand, I looooove cannoli (every time we are in an Italian restaurant or pastry shop, my father and I have to share a cannoli). On the other hand, I detest frying in my current kitchen. But, since I have already missed my maximum number of passes for DB challenges, I forged ahead. As far as the cannoli, they were delicious, but oh-so-rich. Cannoli Shells Ingredients: Directions: Using an electric mixer, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, cinnamon, and salt.

A Taste of Sicily - Ricotta Cappuccino Cannoli. ...An extraordinary Italian dessert composed of delicate, crisp, tube-shaped pastry shells infused with Marsala, filled with sweet, creamy ricotta cheese, embracing miniature chocolate morsels and candied orange peel, and dusted ever so softly with powdered sugar.

However, when this month’s challenge was revealed at the beginning of the month, I had just held my Italian birthday dinner and made homemade cannoli. The good thing about this challenge, though, was that I had just made homemade cannoli! Perhaps I was a bit too confident, though. I decided to halve the recipe, and only about one half of the shells that I made turned out correctly. Cannoli Shells Directions for Cannoli Shells. Watermelon Lime Sorbet Slices.

Watermelon Lime Sorbet Slices

As a bonus, this recipe is frozen back in the watermelon rind and cut off into slices. It’s hot. The type of heat where when you step outside the door and your skin is wet before the door swings shut behind you. It’s a hot that hangs in the air, letting you breathe it in, that is cured only by two things: being completely immersed in water or hiding indoors, the air conditioning cranked as far as it will go.I find that the heat makes me very unmotivated to do things like take a walk, water and weed the garden (though I have forced that one on myself) and prepare food and eat it.

However, when the promise of cooking provides ice cold watermelon sorbet, I just may be convinced. When your simple syrup is cool and watermelon chunked, blend them together in a food processor or blender until smooth. Cool the liquid completely in the refrigerator for a few hours. This then goes into the freezer. Truly, nothing. Homemade Junk Food. Homemade Twix bars.
