    2 tsp ginger 1 4 tsp nutmeg or allspice 1 8 tsp cloves 2 slightly beaten eggs Pour the mixture into the pie shell store bought or see recipe below Bake 15 minutes at 425 then reduce heat to 350 and bake about 45 minues longer or until an inserted knife comes out clean Serve with whipped cream flavored with a dash of vanilla or 2 tablespoons Burbon Pie crust I love homemade pie crust This recipe might look long that s because of the tips added throughout Making crust from scratch is not as hard as it sounds and is worth a try if you haven t done it before A few words of wisdom from www thenewhomemaker com piecrust where you ll also find a great article with close up photos of the steps to a great crust What makes a pie crust good and flaky is making sure you only coat the fat with flour not blend them as you would with a cookie dough This is much easier to do if the fat is very cold When adding liquid and it could be water egg even a little vinegar you don t want it to mix in so much as collect all the flour coated fat particles together and make them stick to one another That s why less is better than more and cold is better than warm Colder and quicker are the watchwords with pie crust This recipe adapted from the Joy of Cooking makes two pie crusts I like to make the whole recipe and freeze the second crust in a freezer bag for later Sift together 2 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt Measure and combine 2 3 cups chilled lard or shortening 2 tablespoons chilled butter Note You can use knives forks your fingers or a food processor to cut in the butter I use all butter and no lard or shortening catherine Cut half of the shortening into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or work it in lightly with the tips of your fingers until it has the grain of cornmeal Cut the remaining half coarsely into the dough until it is pea size Sprinkle dough with 4 tablespoons ice cold water Toss the dough lightly with the water allowing the moisture to spread If needed to hold the ingredients together add 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon water Gather the dough into a ball it should barely hold together and put into the refrigerator until ready to roll out After rolling the dough put the crust into a pie pan and return it to the refrigerator until ready to fill Roasted Green Chiles The Great Salsa Book by Mark Miller 6 8 New Mexican green chilies roasted peeled seeded and diced 2 Roma tomatoes blackened roughly chopped 1 tsp finely minced oregano 1 heaping tsp chopped fresh cilantro 1 2 tsp finely minced marjoram 1 tblsp La Carreta cilantro apple cider vinegar or other cider vinegar 1 tblsp extra virgin olive oil Thoroughly combine all ingredients in mixing bowl Yields 2 cup Heirloom Tomatoes with Goat Cheese and Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette For this dish I copied it straight off a tapas menu from a restaurant I found online but I used Heirloom tomatoes rather than beefsteak I love goat cheese with tomatoes and balsamic dressings are my favorite I made up the dressing recipe it s pretty simple like any standard lighter vinaigrette I always buy organic goat cheese which unlike most products is the same price as regular I guess this is sort of the Spanish equivalent of an Italian caprese another one of my favorites Also I have found that putting the goat cheese in the freezer for 5 minutes and crumbling it with a fork is the best way to get it out and not all over your fingers Heirloom Tomatoes with Goat Cheese and Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette 4 large heirloom tomatoes sliced 2 oz organic goat cheese crumbled Vinaigrette 1 tbsp honey 1 4 c balsamic vinegar 2 tbsp EVOO handful of flat leaf parsley salt and pepper Add dressing ingredients to a blender whirl to combine Arrange tomatoes on a plate top with goat cheese and
