CRANBERRY-ORANGE SCONES by: Greg Stahl


1 3/4 cups King Arthur All Purpose Flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt ( I use bread salt)
1/2 teaspoon allspice
5 tablespoons Smart Balance Omega 3 buttery stick, cut into pieces
1/2 cup dried orange flavored cranberries (you can also use regular dried cranberries and orange peel from one medium orange)
1/3 cup fat free half and half
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 large egg

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) a baking sheet.

1) In a medium-sized mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients, then add the Smart Balance buttery stick pieces, rubbing it in till the mixture resembles coarse meal.

2) Stir in the cranberries.

3) In a separate bowl, whisk together the half and half, orange juice, egg, and orange peel(if you can't find the orange flavored cranberries, otherwise omit the orange peel). Add this mixture to the flour mixture and stir till the dough just comes together.

4) Transfer the dough to a thoroughly floured work surface, knead it a couple of times, and shape it into a 1/2"-thick round, about 8" across.

5) Transfer the round to the prepared baking sheet. Brush with milk, and sprinkle with coarse white sugar, if desired.

6) Cut the round in 10 wedges. Separate the wedges slightly.

7) Bake the scones for about 10-15 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and serve immediately.  

These are so light, moist and fluffy and oh so yummy!  Enjoy

SHOO FLY PIE by: Greg Stahl

There are tons of recipes for this pie, but my Aunt Louise made the best shoo fly pies you could find anywhere, but I didn't know her secret.  I don't like the strong sulfur like taste of molasses so I contacted my cousin yesterday and asked if she had her mom's recipes and she did and shared the pie secret with me.  These are great pies and I had to modify it a little, as we can't get Kings Syrup up here and I only had one cup left, so I used that and one cup of pure cane syrup from the deep South USA.  It was a good mix.

Here's the recipe for a wet bottom Shoo Fly pie:

2 c flour
1 1/2 c brown sugar
4 TBS shortening (Crisco is what I used)
2 eggs beaten
2 c Kings Syrup
1 1/2 c hot water
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c hot water
2 unbaked pie shells

Mix flour, brown sugar and shortening like pie dough to make crumbs.  Take out 2 cups crumbs and save for the pie top.  Let remainder of crumbs in the bowl; add eggs (beaten), Kings Syrup and 1 1/2 cups hot water; mix well.  Dissolve baking soda in 1/2 c hot water; add to the other liquid mixture.  Divide liquid between the two pie shells.  Put crumbs on top.  Bake at 360 for 40 min, until top is dry and done or bubbling over. (Recipe can be divided by two to make just one pie.)
