Did you know
Ommegang Breweries has a website with recipes that use their beer
I think I will try some sometime. I got their abbey ale to use in a rabbit stew though. I’m making it tomorrow, I’ll post the recipe then!
Also hello Tumblr, I’m back from the abyss. We have our own router at last!
Cheese and Onion Pie
La, I made your pie! It was delicious! I didn’t have a pie plate so instead I made three pasties:
I put a bunch of fresh basil in mine, I think it was a good choice! I just squished out the dough, put a handful of onion/cheese/basil on it, folded it over and pinched it together.
Yes Everything is approximate, sorry I don’t usually measure when I cook
Crust (For double crust)
2 and 2/3 cup flour
1/4 cup oil
5 or 6 tablespoons milk (Or water if people are allergic)
mix together with fork
I desperately hate rolling things out so I don’t, bottom crust can be squished into the pie tin, top can be stretched out in your hands, in several pieces if it keep breaking. pierce top with a fork vigorously
Two small blocks cheese cubed (about half an inch to an inch blocks works)
Four or five onions, sliced
Add both so that they are mixed evenly.
Grate nutmeg on the top, (Maybe a half teaspoon?) couple dashes chili pepper, a pinch of curry.
Yum! Doug ended up getting the one with an overload of onions, which he left in a pile on his plate, haha. He just wanted the cheese.
Rum Balls! Doug and I made them over the weekend and they were dee-lee-cious.
I took a recipe from cooks.com and modified it a little to get this:
12 oz. chocolate graham crackers, crushed
1 cup finely chopped hazelnuts
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup rum
In a large bowl combine cookie crumbs and nuts. Add sweetened condensed milk and rum; mix well. Chill 30 minutes; shape mixture into 1 inch balls. Roll in confectioners’ sugar. Store in refrigerator.
They’re supposed to be better after a day, and I believe I agree, though I’d have to try it again to really decide. I like these, they make my belly warm and happy! Will make again.
Next time we’re gonna try using more nuts and less graham crackers (they are a bitch to crush up and were a little too strong). We’re also gonna roll them in cocoa or coconut instead of powdered sugar, they were really sweet. We agreed that 1/2 a cup is about the right amount of rum; gives it a definite kick but isn’t too much. (The recipe called for 1/4 cup, gosh, you wouldn’t even taste it.)
I’m not sure whether to call them cookies or candies or… what. They’re….tasty things.
