Step by step instruction of cooking Pie "Curly sue"
Products that will be needed for the test.
Butter, sugar, baking powder, yolk and salt grind into a homogeneous mass.
Gradually add the flour portions, knead a soft dough.
FRUIT. There is great scope for imagination. It can be a fruit compote with dried apricots or prunes, marmalade or jam. I decided to make a stuffing of prunes.
200 g good soft pitted prunes washed with water, then pour hot water for 5-10 minutes, until soft. Drain in a sieve, pour the infusion (but in no case do not pour!). Then whip the berries in a blender (or pass through a meat grinder) until a homogeneous puree. Add sugar to taste and 1-2 tsp of lemon juice.
If the filling is too thick, dilute slightly with infusion (infusion drink the rest! A very useful thing - sea minerals!).
CHEESE. 500 g of cottage cheese of good quality (not wet, if the cheese is too wet, it must squeeze through several layers of cheesecloth, but in this case it is necessary to take more of curd to pressed was 500 g), 100 g sugar, zest of 1 lemon, 1 sachet of vanilla sugar, 1 tablespoon starch, 3 medium-sized eggs.
All the ingredients a good grind in a blender until smooth.
COCONUT is actually "CURLS". 4 bags white coconut (160 g), 80 g sugar, 100 g butter room temperature. Mix well with your hands to make oil crumb.
Split the form d 24 see grease and lightly flour (or lay a baking paper, which is undoubtedly better). Dough knead by hand, having a side average height (~3 cm).
Spread fruit filling and levelling.
Top gently pour the cheese filling,
And then the most important thing - "curls". For the curd loose, not primina evenly across the surface, hands sprinkle the coconut filling. Here it will be "curls" our sue.
The oven to preheat to 180*C.
The form should cover with foil. This is done to ensure that our lovely redhead sue accidentally turned half an hour later a brunette, because coconut zarumyanyatsya very quickly. Put the pie in the oven and that did not happen, the first 45 minutes, bake the pie under the foil.
Then remove the foil and pie Topcem until tender, beautiful, rosy color. It may take 10-15 minutes. My oven is very hot, so I have reduced the temperature immediately after put it to 170, then up to 160*C. After that it is necessary to turn off the oven, open up the door and leave the cake to Mature in her again for 10-15 minutes.
Then remove the cake from the oven.
When the cake has cooled, gently remove from the form and put into the refrigerator for 2-3 hours so that the mixture finally matured.
The cake turned out very beautiful and delicious. Sweet, not cloying, with a crispy top crust... were delighted with everything! Even my old mother, who recently turned 84 years old!
