This Is The Secret To Keeping Your Butter Perfectly Spreadable And Fresh For A Month

  This Is The Secret To Keeping Your Butter Perfectly Spreadable And Fresh For A Month You can stop playing Goldilocks (too soft! too hard!) with your butter thanks to this little crock.I used to keep butter on my counter in a mini-sized butter dish. The small volume of the dish was great because we could finish the butter before it spoiled. On the other hand, it felt like we were constantly refilling it. And in the summer, the warm temperature meant that it often became too soft.

Canada’s quintessential dessert, the butter tart, gets a grown-up twist with warming whisky, rich pecans and pure maple syrup. Canadian rye whisky adds a touch of warmth and natural spice notes, complementing the super-sweet buttery interior. It’s all balanced by the addition of pecans to add the perfect contrasting crunch. For the pastry, a mixture of butter and shortening helps to create those pretty frilled edges homemade butter tarts are known for – they also help to capture every bit of that sticky, just runny enough, spiked filling.

Chickpea Butter Is a Thing Now (But Isn’t That Just Hummus?)

  Chickpea Butter Is a Thing Now (But Isn’t That Just Hummus?) As alternatives to the ever-popular peanut butter, consumers have seen almond butter, sunflower butter, cashew butter, and even pistachio butter. As it turns out, chickpea butter is absolutely nothing like hummus, as one company that sells chickpea butter, The Amazing Chickpea, explained to The Daily Meal. Chickpea butter attempts to mimic the texture and flavor of dense nut butter, much thicker than hummus or another chickpea spread. Tasters have described it as stickier and more satisfying than hummus, with a pleasantly sweet aftertaste.

Sweet, buttery pecan swirls and pieces of butter tarts make this a splendid treat that tastes Butter Tart Pop Tarts .

Total Time: 2 hours 3 minutes

Makes: 12

Ingredients:

Pastry Dough

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for shaping and rolling

1 1/2 Tbsp granulated white sugar

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup cold vegetable shortening, cut into 1-inch pieces, plus more for tin

Filling

3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup dark corn syrup

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

5 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

2 large eggs

2 Tbsp Canadian rye whisky

1 tsp distilled white vinegar

1/4 tsp salt

2/3 cup pecan halves, roughly chopped 

Directions:

Pastry Dough

1. In a food processor, pulse flour, sugar and salt until combined. Add shortening and butter, and pulse until the mixture is crumbly. In a small bowl, whisk together water, egg yolk and lemon juice until combined. With the processor running, gradually add egg yolk mixture to the flour mixture, until dough just begins to come together.

2. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and briefly knead until dough comes together. Divide dough in half and shape into two discs. On a lightly floured piece of parchment paper, roll out one disc into a circle measuring 1/8-inch or so in thickness. Carefully transfer, with parchment paper intact (to keep it from sticking), to a baking sheet. Repeat this with the second dough disc (use two baking sheets or layer on top of each other using parchment to separate). Cover each rolled disc loosely with additional parchment paper to avoid drying out, and refrigerate for 1 hour, or until chilled and firm.

Crispy, Crunchy Tater Tots Are a Weeknight Superhero

  Crispy, Crunchy Tater Tots Are a Weeknight Superhero I’m an unashamed fan of tots. We go way back. In my family, the golden-crisp, spud-studded nuggets were a weeknight go-to. And though a cluster of tots may not seem like the most proper side dish alongside my mom’s creamy, vermouth-spiked slow-cooker chicken with steamed broccoli, it worked for us (and it was much easier than boiling potatoes and mashing them!) .Recently, I’ve noticed that tots have enjoyed a renaissance on Pinterest boards, Instagram feeds, and hip blogs. But instead of embracing the convenience of this freezer-to-oven-to-plate power starch, a lot of cooks tout their own homemade versions of the nostalgic treat.

3. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking oil or lightly grease with oil or extra shortening.

4. Using a round 4- to 5-inch round cookie cutter or wine glass, cut dough into 12 circles, re-rolling dough once if necessary. Gently press rounds into prepared pan allowing edges to fold up around each other and extend above the rim of pan. Freeze for 20 minutes to firm up. Meanwhile, prepare the filling.

Filling

1. In a medium bowl, preferably one with a pour spout, whisk together brown sugar, corn syrup, maple syrup, melted butter, eggs, whisky, vinegar and salt until smooth and sugar begins to dissolve.

2. Remove pastry shells from freezer. Divide pecans evenly in the bottom of each frozen pastry shell. Pour or ladle filling on top of pecans, filling 1/2-inch below the top of the pastry.

3. Bake in the bottom third of oven for 10 minutes at 450ºF. Reduce heat to 400°F and continue to bake for an additional 6 to 8 minutes, or until filling is set and puffed, covering with foil or parchment to prevent excess browning if necessary.
