Canadian Butter Tarts *****~~~***** Kanadische Törtchen

Canadian Butter Tarts

Brown Butter Maple Tarts have a flaky pie crust and are filled with a rich, almost custard-like center!

  • 2 refrigerated, ready-made pie crusts 
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp flour

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Unroll the pie crust dough and use a 3-inch circle cookie cutter to punch out 7 circles from each pie crust. Re-roll the dough if necessary. Place each circle in a muffin tin, set aside.
  3. Brown the butter by placing it in a saucepan over medium heat, melt it until it begins to steam and foam. (Keep a close eye on it as it foams.) Swirl it gently, watching the color. When it turns golden brown and releases the aroma of toasting nuts, immediately remove it from the heat and whisk in the maple syrup, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour and stir to combine.
  4. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crusts.
  5. Bake until puffed and browned, about 10-12 minutes.

Kanadische Törtchen

diese Törtchen sind ein Klassiker in meiner kanadischen Familie und vor allem in der Weihnachtszeit gegessen

375 gTeig, fertiger Mürbeteig
175 gZucker, braun
100 gRosinen
1 Pck.Vanillezucker, Bourbon
50 gButter
4 ELCrème fraîche
50 gWalnüsse, Pecan gehackte

Arbeitszeit ca. 30 Min.Gesamtzeit ca. 30 Min.Kalorien pro Portion ca. 200 kcal

Den Ofen auf 175°C vorheizen.

Den Mürbeteig auf einer bemehlten Fläche ausrollen. Anschließend 18 - 20 7,5 cm runde Kreise ausstechen und dann diese Teigscheiben in je eine Öffnung einer Muffinform drücken.

Nun die Eier in einer großen Schüssel schlagen und mit den restlichen Zutaten (außer den Nüssen) mischen und dann in einen Topf füllen und ca. 3-4 Min rühren, bis die Butter geschmolzen ist und die Masse anfängt zu blubbern und beginnt, einzudicken. Nicht überkochen - es kann leicht anbrennen - Vorsicht!

Vom Herd nehmen und die Nüsse unterheben. Nun die Masse in die Teigschüsseln in der Muffinform bis knapp unter den Teigrand geben! Dann 15-18 Min backen, bis leicht goldbraun und dann etwas abkühlen lassen - können warm oder kalt gegessen werden.

Dazu passt eine Kugel Eis!

Korean Mayak Eggs - Marinated Eggs
I  found this recipe on Instagram following seonkyounglongest!

This is such a pleasant dish and so flavorful - i made the eggs as in the recipe but added too much marinade to the rice was too salty... so next time i will just make the eggs take out the chilies and add them to the eggs rice and make some vegetables and eat it is soooo good.
You can eat the eggs at room temp or with warm rice - great for Bento box!
The eggs will last 5 to 7 days in a refrigerator. 

If you want to reuse the marinade, make sure to boil it before the 2nd use to get rid of extra moist from veggies. Though I don't recommend to reuse the marinade- it has done its job (most of the flavors got into the eggs) and in my case, they are most likely gone because I mix them with rice! 

Vietnamese Version tip: in place of the soy sauce, use fish sauce! That is the Vietnamese way.
For children, keep it basic with sweetener, water, fish sauce with boiled eggs cut up and yolk used to thi…

Nigella Lawson Khachapuri - Georgian Cheese Bread - Georgisches Käsebrot

i am just reading a very nice book about a Jewish family that left Russia in 1920 to go to New York and start new - its a really lovely story that I will blog later... The same time I am reading in Nigellas cookbook and find this Georgian cheese bread - absolutely EVERYTHING in this recipe is forbidden for me but EVERYTHING cried for make me... so I tried today and the result is phenomenal... absolutely gorgeous...

love every bit of it...
Nigella made this recipe after years of searching for a recipe she had in St. Petersburg in a restaurant  - finally  - long trials after a no success  - she finally hit a little Pub in New York that is called Little Georgia... there was the dish - there was the Hachapuri... The chef was kind enough to instruct her in her own kitchen how to make it...
So how could I resist I simply had to make it. Next time I will roll out the dough thicker and make individual khachapuri and pat them down and make them extra yummy
Enjoy - I know I did... I made onl…
