    Makes one 8-inch pie

    • 1/2 recipe Pate Brisee (Pie Dough)
    • All-purpose flour, for dusting
    • 2 cups homemade Pumpkin Puree, or 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
    • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt


    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour, and roll pastry dough into a 12-inch circle. Line an 8-inch pie plate with pastry, and trim pastry so it’s even with edge of plate. Decorate edge with leaf shapes cut from excess pastry. Chill.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin puree, eggs, cream, sugar, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Whisk until well blended. Pour into chilled pastry shell. Bake until crust is golden brown, and custard is set, 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool before serving.


    1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
    1/2 cup shortening, room temperature
    1-1/2 cups sugar
    5 eggs, separated
    2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1cup shredded coconut
    1 cup pecans or walnuts, finely chopped

    2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
    4 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

    1 cup toasted coconut *
    Pecan or walnuts halves

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
    Grease 3 (9-inch) cake pans.

    In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, shortening, and sugar until light and fluffy.
    Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
    With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and buttermilk.
    Add the vanilla and blend well.

    In another bowl, beat the egg whites until firm peaks form.
    Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
    Fold in the coconut and pecans or walnuts.
    Divide the batter among the 3 cake pans, about 2 cups per pan.
    Bake for 25 minutes, until a tester comes out clean when inserted in the center of each cake.
    Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes.
    Turn the cakes out onto wire racks to finish cooling.

    While the cakes are cooling, prepare the icing.
    In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine the cream cheese, butter and vanilla until smooth.
    Add the confectioners’ sugar and mix thoroughly until combined.

    Stack the cake layers with a layer of icing between each layer. (See tip below)
    Spread the icing on the sides and top of the cake.
    Press the toasted coconut into the icing around the sides of the cake.
    Decorate the top of the cake with the pecan or walnuts halves.

    How to toast coconut:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Arrange shredded or flaked coconut in a single layer on a baking sheet.
    Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown.
    Stir and check frequently to prevent burning.
    Remove from oven and cool before using.

    You can also toast coconut on the stove top:
    Place the coconut in a dry non-stick skillet.
    Gently stir it over low heat until golden brown.
    Transfer the coconut to a plate and allow it to cool before using.

    Tip for frosting a layer cake:
    To begin frosting a layer cake, place the bottom layer on the serving plate.
    Place small strips of waxed paper under the edges of the cake to keep the serving plate clean during frosting.
    Remove the strips after you finish all your cake decorating.



    Ah, the maligned fruitcake. Many store-bought varieties, stuffed with unrecognizable candied bits, deserve their bad reputation-but not these wonderful cakes, made with a generous serving of dried fruit and candied orange peel in a light batter. There’s only one trick: buy the best-quality, moist dried and candied fruit you can afford.


    • 1 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped candied orange peel (about 8 ounces)
    • 1 cup chopped dried cherries (about 6 ounces)
    • 1 cup chopped dried apricots (about 6 ounces)
    • 1 cup chopped dried pineapple (about 6 ounces)
    • 3/4 cup currants (about 4 ounces)
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
    • 3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup mild extra-virgin olive oil or walnut oil
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 3 tablespoons molasses
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 large egg whites, divided
    • 3 glaceed red cherries, cut in half, for garnish
    • 8 pecan halves for garnish

    Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 275degreesF. Coat two 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pans or 3 mini loaf pans (6-by-3-inch) with cooking spray and lightly dust with flour.

    Bring orange juice to a simmer in a small pan over medium-high heat. Mix orange peel, dried cherries, apricots, pineapple and currants in a large bowl; pour the warm juice over the fruit and let sit until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Strain out excess juice; toss the fruit with 1/2 cup all-purpose flour until well coated. Set aside.

    Whisk the remaining 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, cinnamon, allspice, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl until blended.

    Place sugar, oil and butter in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in molasses and vanilla, then add egg whites one at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.

    Stir in the dry ingredients. Pour the batter over the fruit and mix well. Divide the mixture among the prepared pans. Decorate the tops with glaceed cherries and pecans.

    Bake the cakes until lightly browned and firm to the touch, about 1 hour and 40 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. Let cool in the pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Unmold and cool completely.

    To “ripen” fruitcakes, wrap the cooled loaves in a piece of cheesecloth drizzled with 2 tablespoons bourbon or brandy, then seal tightly in plastic wrap and foil; refrigerate for up to 2 months, wetting the cloth every 2 weeks.

    Candied orange peel is available from The Baker’s Catalogue, bakerscatalogue.com, (800) 827-6836.

    Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well.
