  • 1

    Directions for Batter:In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks, then whisk in the milk, melted butter, and almond extract. Add the yolk mixture to the flour mixture and , using a wooden spoon, stir until well blended. The batter will be lumpy.

  • 2

    In a clean bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites until stiff, but not dry, peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold about one-third the egg whites into the batter to lighten it, then fold in the rest just until no white streaks remain. Use the batter right away.

  • 3

    Directions for Filling:Preheat the oven to 200° F. In a dry frying pan over medium heat, toast the almonds, stirring often, until lightly browned and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Transfer the nuts to a food processor, let cool slightly, and pulse just until coarse crumbs form. Be careful not to over process or the nuts will get buttery. Make the batter as directed, adding half of the ground almonds with the dry ingredients.

  • 4

    Brush the wells of the ebelskiver pan with some of the melted butter and place over medium heat. Divide the remaining ground almonds into 3 equal portions. Working with 1 portion, sprinkle half of the nuts evenly over the bottom and sides of the buttered wells. When the butter start to bubble, add about 1 tablespoon batter to each well. Working quickly, carefully spoon about 1 teaspoon of the cherry preserves into the center of each pancake. Top each with another 1 tablespoon batter. Sprinkle the tops with the remaining half-portion of ground nuts, dividing evenly.

  • 5

    Cook until the bottom of the pancakes are lightly crowned and crisp, 3-5 minutes. Use 2 short wooden skewers to turn all the pancakes and cook until lightly brown don the second side, about 3 minutes longer.

  • 6

    Transfer the finished pancakes to a platter and keep warm in the oven while you repeat to make 2 more batches. Serve warm.

Cherry-Almond Ebelskivers - Recipes

Occasionally I stray from writing about cookies to bring you something extra special that I know you'll enjoy such as Whoopie Pies. Today is one of those days.

I recently celebrated my birthday and as a present, I received a wonderful surprise from my partner's sister Maureen and husband Jimmy in the form of a circular pan with seven deep wells which is used to make ebelskivers (pronounced "able-skeevers"). These light, puffy, sphere-shaped pancakes are from Denmark. My quizzical expression turned to a big smile as I continued to unwrap the series of items used to make ebelskivers. First the pan, then a cookbook filled with recipes (complete with beautiful photographs). Next I tore the wrapping off the pleasantly shaped fancy wooden turning tools used to flip the spheres. Lastly, I unwrapped a container of ebelskiver mix. I was ready to start cooking up batches of these tasty pancakes with wonderful sweet or savory fillings. If I hadn't been in a restaurant at the time, I just might have begun churning out these tasty treats immediately.

Ebelskivers were traditionally served as snacks or desserts during the holidays but luckily, we can make them at any time of year. And believe me, you'll want to make them a lot.

At the risk of sounding a bit like Forrest Gump, you can make cinnamon ebelskivers, maple-nut ebelskivers, coconut ebelskivers, lemon-poppy seed ebelskivers, iced gingerbread ebelskivers, corn ebelskivers, cherry-almond ebelskivers, jelly donut ebelskivers, banana-rum ebelskivers, chocolate truffle ebelskivers, pumpkin pie ebelskivers, and caramel-pecan ebelskivers. I could go on and on but let's get to it.

The batter is simple to make. If you've ever made pancakes (and who hasn't?) you can easily make ebelskiver batter. You'll need to separate two eggs and beat the whites until they are stiff. Folding them into the batter just before cooking makes the batter very light and results in delicate, puffy spheres. If this sounds like too much work, you can skip it as Rachel Ray did on her show in 2008. Click on the video and see how Rachel does it.

I started simply, with plain Ebelskivers which turned out well for a first try. With a little practice I was flipping them like a pro. I served the pancakes with a dusting of powdered sugar, pure maple syrup, and a side of bacon. They were delicious and I devoured at least ten of them. I recommend you don't bother counting like I did. It only adds to the guilt factor.

The next day I tried chocolate filled versions which were truly decadent when served with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and bittersweet chocolate drizzled on top.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, separated
1 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg yolks, then whisk in the milk and melted butter. Add the yolk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until blended. Batter will be lumpy.

In a clean bowl using in electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Using a spatula, fold about one-third of the egg whites into the batter to lighten it, then fold in the rest until just blended and no white streaks remain. Use batter as soon as it's ready.

Chocolate Filled Ebelskivers

12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or heatproof bowl placed over a pan of boiling water. You can also use a microwave, being careful not to burn it.

Brush the wells of the pan with melted butter and place over medium heat. When the butter starts to bubble, add about 1 tablespoon of batter to each well. Working quickly, carefully spoon 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate into the center of each pancake. Top each with another tablespoon of batter.

Continue cooking about 3 minutes and using 2 short wooden skewers, gently flip pancakes and continue cooking about 3 minutes longer. Remove from pan and transfer to a preheated 200 degree oven or serve immediately.

Peach pie looks good. Here's a really good peach and blackberry pie recipe that was in Parade in the Sunday newspaper, oddly enough.

Sheila Lukins, Dash (Parade Magazine)

When you brush the bottom pie crust with an egg wash, you keep the fruit from making the pie soggy as it bakes. By sprinkling the top crust with sugar, it makes for a great sugary crust.

Pie Crust for a 9-inch double-crust pie
5 cups peeled and sliced ripe peaches
¼ cup fresh blackberries
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Pinch of salt
2 Tbsp ground crystallized ginger (a food processor or spice grinder may be used to grind the ginger)
5 Tbsp all-purpose flour
¼ cup packed light-brown sugar
1 egg white
2 tsp water
2 Tbsp granulated sugar

Directions

Prepare the pie dough, rolling out the bottom crust to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Roll out the top crust and place it on a plate. Wrap both crusts and chill until ready to use.

Combine the peaches, blackberries, lemon juice, and salt set aside. Combine the ginger, flour, and brown sugar toss with the fruits. Let rest for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Combine the egg white and water in a small bowl. Remove the pie crusts from the refrigerator. Brush some of the egg-white mixture over the bottom and sides of the bottom pie crust to prevent sogginess. Add the fruit filling, mounding the peaches in the center.

Cover the filling with the top crust. Trim the overhang to 1 inch. With water, moisten the edges of the crusts where they meet, then press together lightly and turn under. Crimp the edges decoratively. Cut 6 decorative steam slits in the top crust. Brush the top crust lightly all over with the remaining egg-white mixture. Sprinkle lightly with the granulated sugar.

Place the pie on the center rack of the oven and bake until it is golden and the juices are bubbling, about 60 to 70 minutes. Let the pie cool on a rack before serving just slightly warm or at room temperature.

Raspberry and Blueberry Tiramisu

Happy 4th of July everyone! This is the dessert that I will be serving to the family for the holiday. It is a trifle of lady fingers, raspberry jam, berries and mascarpone whipped cream. In a traditional tiramisu the lady fingers are soaked in espresso topped with marsala and mascarpone cream. Chocolate is sprinkled on the top. In this lighter version, the lady fingers are soaked in a Grand Marnier raspberry jam and the berries are added instead of chocolate. I even took it a step further by using orange juice instead of Grand Marnier. We have lots of kids at our party and I don’t think they would appreciate the alcohol.

The great thing about this dessert is that has to be made ahead of time. The longer it sits the better it gets. It couldn’t be simpler. Enjoy your holiday.

RASPBERRY AND BLUEBERRY TIRAMISU (Adapted from Giada De Laurentiis)

1 12 ounce jar of seedless raspberry jam
6 Tablespoon Grand Marnier or Orange Juice
1 pound Mascarpone Cheese, at room temperature
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
48 soft ladyfingers (2 3-0unce packages) or 40 dry Italian Ladyfingers (2 packages)
3 baskets fresh raspberries (1/2 dry pint, about 3 3/4 cups total)
A handful of blueberries

Stir together the jam and 4 tablespoons of Grand Marnier or orange juice in a small bowl to blend.

Stir together the mascarpone and remaining 2 tablespoons of Grand Marnier or orange juice in a large bowl to blend. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla in another large bowl until soft peaks form. Using a large rubber spatula, stir a fourth of the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture to lighten. Fold the remaining whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture.

Line the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish or other decorative serving dish with a third of the ladyfingers. Spread a third of the jam mixture over the ladyfingers. Spread a third of the mascarpone mixture over the jam mixture, then cover with a third of the fresh raspberries. Repeat layering with the remaining ladyfingers, jam mixture, mascarpone mixture, and raspberries. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours of overnight.

Dust confectioners’ sugar over the top if desired and serve.

Seeing that the girls' bad-boyfriend cleansing ritual really heats up when Rachel pours the rest of Paulo's grappa onto it, we figured that this episode called for a grappa-based concoction. Heather tracked this one down and as a bonus, this recipe allowed us to use the creme de violette we haven't used since the pilot episode , when we made aviations.

FOOD: This week, we've got baked goods (both sweet and savory), an . interesting salad, three chocolate mousses (to go), and questionable ritual ingredients.

FASHION: Rachel’s way better at being cute as a depressed single gal than Monica is, and Ross looks like the Cat in the Hat. Apparently Chandler isn’t allowed to be sexy anymore.

In our first face-to-face recording session (but actually our second, because it’s not just lasagnas that are time-traveling), Elizabeth finally indulges her theory that this episode was originally supposed to air earlier in the season, but was pushed back in order to extend the Paulo storyline! We go into all of the evidence to support this theory, including:

  • Wardrobe/appearance: Short sleeves, earth tones, and shrinking hair
  • Environment: Fall leaves, a mummy mug, and a faulty calendar

Thank goodness we had a technical glitch and got to refresh our cocktails just 15 minutes in (or did we?), because all of this time travelling is confusing! Also, it cushions the blow of what will likely be one of the biggest points of contention throughout this show: whether or not Ross is a jerk.
