Sample text

To combat any cracks, roll firmly but slowly, in small, brief motions, over both sides of the crack, stopping just short of rolling over the crack. The two sides will grow closer together—if not completely together—either fixing the dough or making a patch job easier. ) 1. Lightly flour each side of a disk of dough, set it on a floured surface, and give it a good whack with your rolling pin. 2. Roll from the center of the dough to the edge until the dough is a large round, about ⅛ inch thick. As you roll, turn the dough often to help it form an even round and prevent it from sticking to the rolling surface.

Then transfer the galette to a wire rack by grabbing the edges of the paper and carefully lifting it onto the rack. Hold the top of the galette gently and pull the parchment paper from beneath it, allowing the bottom to crisp and cool more quickly. Make sure it cools for at least an hour on the rack before serving. At serving time, gently slide the galette onto a plate or cutting board. Sometimes I serve the galette from the parchment paper; it looks nearly as rustic as a cast-iron pan. HOW TO BE A PIE ROLLER When your dough has sufficiently rested, find a large clean, flat surface, preferably made of wood or marble.

To freeze pie filling, make the filling according to the recipe’s instructions (fruit, sugar, salt, spice, thickener: about 5 to 6 cups total) and freeze in gallon-size freezer bags. To use, first allow it to thaw enough to be easily mounded into a pie shell. HOW TO BAKE No matter how well a cookbook is written, the cooking times it gives will be wrong. Ingredients don’t take three or five or ten minutes to be done; it depends on the day and the stove. So you must simply pay attention, trust yourself, and decide.
