Today's Tuesday's With Dorie recipe was chosen by Jacque (What a talent she is!) of Daisy Lane Cakes. The recipe from Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home To Yours used a(nother) flaky pastry dough (similar to last week). This dough was very wet and many complained that it was hard to work with, especially as it became room temperature quickly after it had been chilled. I just used lots of flour on the counter and didn't have any sticking problems. I worked quickly and made sure I had everything else I needed ready to go. Although it's wooden and not marble like some, I also threw my rolling pin in the freezer for a couple hours. I think it helped.
I made half the recipe. I cut circles not squares. And then as Kevin put it, "you just can't follow a recipe exactly, can you?"--I came up with lots of fun things to put inside. The recipe only suggested jam. I did some with jam. Raspberry. They're good.
That would have been a lot of raspberry pufflets had I done them all that way.
So I didn't. I made a couple with some chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Yep, that's right.
I had fun looking in the cupboard for things that would be fun and yummy. I made some with mini chocolate chips, coconut, and almonds. They were "joy"ous!
I made a couple as Smore's. That's right. Marshmallow Creme, chocolate and graham cracker crumbs.
A few of them I added the raspberry jam and threw in some pecans, too. I know, I'm nuts! But they're good ;) Also made one with just some chocolate chips.
There was still all the scrap dough left. I balled it up and wrapped it back up and put it in the fridge to chill again. Then I didn't feel like rolling, cutting, filling, pinching together, and venting anymore, so I made a pufflet galette. After rolling the dough out thin, I used the rest of the raspberry jam I had out and spread that on the bottom, then I sprinkled the remaining coconut over that. Followed by some chopped pecans and almonds and the mini chocolate chips. THIS, my friends, is delicious! A wonderful combination of flavors! Perfect because I didn't have to put such a small dab of filling on it, I didn't have to pinch anything or vent it with holes. I brushed some milk on the dough then sprinkled it with sugar.
Crusty, flaky things are dangerous for me. I like them. I eat too much. I should have quartered the recipe.
I love crust. Oh, I said that already.
I like the filling, too. It all went great together.
Thanks, Jacque, although this was similar to last weeks turnovers, I had fun playing around with it. Check out all the other pufflets in TWD Land for more creative deliciousness.
