Im really interested in Phil's idea of toasting the flour before making the dough.


The idea was stolen from here, btw: http://chocolateandzucchini.com/archives/2010/04/squeeze_cookies_a_roasted_flour_experiment.php

Do food forums go off on beer tangents?

I was thinking about starting a beer thread in a cooking forum. But all of the cooking forums are filled with a bunch of jerks that wnant to jump all over people when they think they are wrong.

Man, I hate when people are telling me I am wrong, especially when I am right.
Beer, its whats for dinner.

Yeah you're right ::) and they probably use more than just salt, and use non-stick and crockpots too!
Plus you get to talk like a Pirate here!  ;D

Hey Cap,  I made your potato pie, and gotta say it's pretty darn good.  Didn't add any spices or vanilla, just potatoes (4), sweetened condensed milk (one 12oz can), a little bit of cane sugar (less than 1/4 cup), and 3 eggs.  Made the shortbread crust too.

Quite good.  Made one big regular size pie and two mini pies with the leftovers.

Drizzled honey over it for the last 10 min. 

Baked a little lower temp - 350 for about an hour 15min (it was a good 2" thick)

Quite tasty after my from-scratch chicken noodle soup for dinner.  My wife loved me lots for making all that.  ;)

Glad you liked it try experimenting eith the egg to potato ratio if you like. My wife likes it more custardy.

Also try mixing just egg, cream, sugar and vanilla, the filling should come out like flan.  Then after its baked sprinkle it liberally with sugar and then brown it with a propane torch. Wow. Its fantastic.

Never seen anyone make it except my wife...

BTW: make a ton, freeze each roll individually and you always have something to serve. Thaws fast, tastes awesome!

On the avacado pie front, I don't think I wouild cook tha avacado. I find when cooked they lose all their flavor. But I have made a key lime pie raw foods/vegan style with avacado to get the color and creaminess and irish moss as a thickener. That one had a pressed macadamia nut crust but I bet you could blind bake a crust and add the 'custard' after it is chilled. It was good. to sweet for me and REALLY rich. it came from the graditude cafe cookbook and all those deserts come out to sweet for me. perhaps the raw foods vegan thing results in protien cravings as those can often be confused with sweet cravings.

I also make an avacado ice cream (More or less alton browns recipe) that is really good although it can make people nervous if you tell them what it is. And a coconut 'sorbet'. no dairy just coconut milk and agave or honey, sugar, maple, whatever. Plain vanilla is good chocolate is awesome. For apple pie though I like to make a simple vanilla ice cream but swap out the sugar for a jar of ginger preserves (When I can find them).

Yeah that makes sense.

Maybe I will try to pre bake the pie crust then make cold set type of avocado custard.

Avocado makes a great shake. Avocados in the blender with some kefir and sugar. Blend till creamy. WOW! Make it thick and it works well as a dessert that can be eaten with a spoon.

Ill have to try and make the avocado ice cream.

Ill get some pies going in this thread soon. Have run any pre thanks giving trial runs yet.  Guess I better get started though TG is coming up fast.

One Bowl Brownies.  The recipe is on the Baker's baking chocolate box.  This recipe makes the best brownies I have ever had.  Everyone that has tasted them agrees. ;D
