I have recently had a lot of people at home for dinners, lunches, brunches and coffee to celebrate our wedding and my birthday so I decided to give you the recipes of some sweets/pastries I made.
Key Lime Pie
I found Martha Stewart's recipe here.
But I am making it a little bit different!
So here is my recipe for a 40cm x 30cm pan.
2 packets of digestive biscuits
a big cup of melted butter
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
6 egg yolks
3 cans of sweetened condensed milk.
the zest of 6 limes
the juice of 6 limes
Turn the oven on at 200 degrees.
Put the digestives in the mixer and make them powder.
Melt the butter and add it to the biscuits along with the sugar, mix well and lay in the tray.
Mix the sweetend milk, the egg yolks, the juice of the limes and the zest of the 5 limes in a bowl and lay over the biscuits.
Put in the oven for 15 minutes. It shouldn't get burned or look wrinkled. It should stay even and soft looking.
Take out of the oven immediately,sprinkle with the zest from the 6th lime.
Let it cool and put in the fridge.
You can make it a day before the party.
I don't bake the biscuit as Martha says and I don't add cream on top.It is too much for me. You can also make it with lemons instead of limes but I love limes.
Puff Pastry with chocolate
You need two puff pastry pieces and some chocolate spread.
You put one pastry piece on the oven tray. Spread chocolate on top.Put the other pastry sheet on top. Cut any design you like and twist each piece twice. Spread some egg on top and bake for 10 minutes in 200 degrees. I made one as a Christmas tree for Christmas.
2 cups flour
Half a cup of sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
Half a teaspoon of salt
¾ cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil (or olive oil)
1 egg (or 2)
Chocolate drops, blueberries and redberries deep frozen.
Preheat the oven at the top and bottom up to two hundred degrees. Put a little vegetable oil in each muffin tray or a piece of paper.
Mix in a bowl all dry ingredients, in another all liquid materials. Add the dry materials in liquids. Mix well with a fork.
Add any other material that you want as chocolate drops or pieces of fruit.
Put a large table spoonful into each compartment of the muffin tray.
Bake for about 20 minutes.
It makes twelve cupcakes.
I have also made pavlova recently with meringues, cherries and whipped cream, so very easy also.
Konstandinidis the other day and they were delicious although rather expensive.
Terkenlis, like the ones Kikitsa brought me or petit four from Gatidis like the ones Evangelia brought me, or carioca from Papaparaskevas from Xanthi like those Elsa brought me, or chocolate biscuits in the shape of a heart like Lina's. They are perfect for a
Saint Valentine's morning.
Enough with all those
sweetthings . I think I need a diet!
Why don't you link something sweet in Our Beautiful World too?
