lemon pie

Ingredients

Makes one 11-inch pie

Directions

  1. Wash and cut 2 of the lemons into paper-thin slices. It is very important to slice the lemons as thinly as possible; use a very sharp knife or an electric meat slicer, if on is available. Remove peel and pith of remaining lemons; slice the flesh very, very thinly, and put it with the other slices in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, and toss well to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and let the mixture rest overnight, stirring occasionally.
  2. The next day, preheat oven to 450 degrees. Press one circle of pastry into an 11-inch pie plate and chill.
  3. Add beaten eggs to the lemon mixture, and mix well. Turn mixture into prepared pie shell, neatly arranging some of the lemon slices on top. Cut long, even slashes 1 inch apart in the other pastry round, and place on top of filling. Crimp edges of the pie to seal. Brush top and edges with egg-white glaze. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and continue baking for 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and shiny. Let cool on a rack before serving.

Ingredients

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

Directions

  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.

pecan pieIngredients

Makes one 9-inch pie

  • Pate Brisee
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 cups packed light-brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsulfured molasses
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon or dark rum
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 2/3 cups pecans, coarsely chopped, plus 1/3 cup whole pecan halves

Directions

  1. Set a 9-inch cake ring (with 1 1/2-inch sides) on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; set aside. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out one disk of dough to a 13-inch round. With a dry pastry brush, sweep off the excess flour; fit dough into cake ring, gently pressing into the edges and up the sides. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes. Using a sharp paring knife, trim dough flush with the top edge of ring. Chill pie shell until firm, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the remaining dough to an 1/8-inch thickness. Using leaf-shaped cutters, cut out 12 leaves (we made seven larger ones for the outside edge and five smaller ones for the middle); transfer to the prepared sheet. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 egg and the heavy cream; brush over leaf cutouts, and transfer to the refrigerator.
  3. Line chilled pie shell with parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang. Fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake until the edges begin to turn golden, about 20 minutes. Remove parchment and weights; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining 5 eggs, the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, molasses, bourbon, vanilla, and salt. Stir in the chopped pecans. Pour filling into the cooled pie shell; arrange reserved leaves and whole pecans on top of pie.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake until a knife tip inserted into the center of the pie comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Transfer the pie (still on the baking sheet) to a wire rack to cool completely before unmolding. Pie can be kept at room temperature, loosely covered with aluminum foil, for up to 4 days.

Ingredients

Makes one 9-inch pie

  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1/2 recipe Pate Brisee (Pie Dough)
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar, sifted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour, and roll out pate brisee to a 1/8-inch thickness. Fit into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Trim pastry using scissors or a sharp paring knife. Crimp or decorate edges of pastry if desired. Chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Carefully line pastry with parchment paper, pressing it into corners and edges, and weight with beans, rice, or aluminum or ceramic weights. Bake until pastry begins to color around edges, about 15 minutes. Remove paper and weights, and continue to bake just until pastry dries out and turns golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  3. Cool completely on a wire rack. The baked shell can be stored in airtight containers or well wrapped in plastic in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  4. Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Make the custard: In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and salt. In a medium saucepan, bring milk just to a boil. Remove from heat, and whisk about 1/2 cup of hot milk into yolk mixture. Whisk yolk mixture into saucepan of hot milk. Place over medium-high heat, and bring to a gentle boil, whisking constantly. Continue to cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and whisk in butter, one piece at a time, until melted. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, and whisk until smooth. Immediately strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium bowl. Place bowl of custard in ice bath to cool, stirring occasionally.
  5. Peel bananas, and slice 1/4 inch thick. Add lemon juice, and toss gently to coat. Arrange in an even layer in bottom of baked piecrust. Scrape cooled custard over bananas, and smooth top with a spatula. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
  6. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat cream on medium-low speed for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium-high, and add confectioners’ sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until soft peaks form. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip (Ateco No. 32). Pipe cream over custard in large rosettes, covering it completely. Serve immediately.

Just before serving, cut 3 or 4 bananas into 1/4-inch slices, slightly on the bias. Beginning at the edge of the piecrust, arrange the slices in slightly overlapping rows on top of the whipped cream.

coconut cream pie

Ingredients

Makes one 9-inch pie

  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1 large whole egg, lightly beaten, plus 4 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 recipe Pate Brisee for Coconut Cream Pie
  • Fresh Coconut Curls
  • Chocolate Curls

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to a 12-inch round, a bit less than 1/4 inch thick. Fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate. Using kitchen shears or a sharp knife, trim crust to a 1/2-inch overhang all around. Fold under overhang so it extends slightly beyond edge of pie plate. Crimp edge as desired. Prick dough all over with a fork. Brush rim of dough with beaten egg. Chill pie shell until firm, about 30 minutes.
  2. Line chilled pie shell with a round of parchment paper, leaving a 1-inch overhang. Fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake until edges of crust just turn golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove parchment and pie weights. Return crust to oven, and continue baking until golden all over 15 to 20 minutes more. Place pie shell on a wire rack to cool completely. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  3. Place Coconut Curls on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, tossing occasionally, until fragrant and lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Prepare an ice bath; set aside. In a bowl, lightly whisk egg yolks; set aside. In a saucepan, whisk together coconut milk, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Bring to a simmer (do not boil), and cook, whisking constantly, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Whisk a quarter of hot-milk mixture into egg yolks; whisk in remaining milk mixture. Strain into a clean saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat, whisking constantly, until custard is thick and bubbles appear in center, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl, and cover with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto surface to prevent a skin from forming. Set in ice bath until completely chilled, 30 to 35 minutes. (Filling can be kept in refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap, up to 1 day.)
  6. Melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water (do not let bowl touch the water), or in the microwave. Stir until smooth, and set aside until cool to touch, stirring occasionally.
  7. Using a pastry brush, coat inside of cooled crust with melted chocolate. Place in refrigerator or freezer until firm to touch, about 10 minutes
  8. Fill crust with coconut custard, spreading evenly with an offset spatula. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with whisk attachment, combine cream and confectioners’ sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Using a small offset spatula, spread whipped cream on top of custard. Refrigerate pie at least 3 hours before serving. Garnish with toasted Coconut Curls and Chocolate Curls just before serving.
