Valentine Lemon Pie
Submitted by: Barbiel
1 package english
1 cup lemon juice (about 6 lemon juice)
1 glass fresh cream
1 glass sweetened
pink or red coloring food
lemon peel for garnish
Mix together fresh
cream with condensed milk and lemon juice. Add coloring food
(pink or red). Mix very well and reserve until mixture adquires
good consistence and color. Dip each and every cookie in this
mixture and place them as a layer all around in a glass form
(bottom and sides). Finish last layer with cream mixture over
top. Decorate with lemon peel, or edible red rose petal or
peppermint leaves, cocktail cherries (or even all of them, just
let your fantasy flow). Very Important is to place pie in
refrigerator for at least 3 hours (better more than 6) before
Note from Barbiel: This is a very beautiful no-bake pie.
And you can use your imagination to do it the way you think it
suits you better for your ocasion, holiday, party or necessity.
You can adjust it by adding some more spicies like Vanilla sugar
or any other ingredient mixed together and also reducing part
of the lemon juice (6 lemons its really a lot) for some other
fruit Liquer your preference, such as Cherry, Orange or any
other different too: Bayley, Rum, etc
Using green coloring food and Mint Liqueur will also turn your
Valentine Lemon Pie into a St. Patrick's one.
Or maybe a yellow/orange color for Easter...
It's your choice ;o)
8 tablespoons brown sugar
4 teaspoons butter
1/4 teaspoon ground
raisins in Rum (optional)
whipped cream (optional)
Rub the apples, then core them.
Place in a baking dish. Fill each center with 2 tablespoons
sugar, 1 teaspoon butter, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and raisins in
Rum, if desired. Add 1/4 inch water to the pan. Bake 30-40
minutes at 375°F. Serve
warm with whipped cream (optional).
Suggestion from Barbiel: Can be served with Vanille ice
cream too. You may substitute any Liqueur your preference for
raisins in Rum. Its simply delicious !!!
