Lemon Filling

1

cup granulated sugar 

1/4

cup cornstarch 

1/8

teaspoon table salt 

1 1/2

cups cold water 

6

large egg yolks 

1

tablespoon lemon zest from 2 lemons

1/2

cup lemon juice from 2 to 3 lemons or more

2

tablespoons unsalted butter 

Meringue Topping

1

tablespoon cornstarch 

1/4

teaspoon cream of tartar 

1/2

cup granulated sugar 

4

large egg whites  (or 5)

1/2

teaspoon vanilla extract 

For the filling: Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt, and water in a large, nonreactive saucepan. Bring mixture to simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally at beginning of the process and more frequently as mixture begins to thicken. When mixture starts to simmer and turn translucent, whisk in egg yolks, two at a time. Whisk in zest, then lemon juice, and finally butter. Bring mixture to a brisk simmer, whisking constantly. Remove from heat, place plastic wrap directly on surface of filling to keep hot and prevent skin from forming.

For the meringue: Mix cornstarch with 1/3 cup water in small saucepan; bring to simmer, whisking occasionally at beginning and more frequently as mixture thickens. When mixture starts to simmer and turn translucent, remove from heat. Let cool while beating egg whites.

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Mix cream of tartar and sugar together. Beat egg whites and vanilla until frothy. Beat in sugar mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time; until sugar is incorporated and mixture forms soft peaks. Add cornstarch mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue to beat meringue to stiff peaks. Remove plastic from filling and return to very low heat during last minute or so of beating meringue (to ensure filling is hot).

Pour filling into pie shell. Using a rubber spatula, immediately distribute meringue evenly around edge then center of pie to keep it from sinking into filling. Make sure meringue attaches to pie crust to prevent shrinking. Use spoon to create peaks all over meringue. Bake pie until meringue is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and cool to room temperature. Serve.

Creme Brulee
(from the Julia Child Cookbook)

Yield: Eight 4-ounce ramekins

3 cups heavy cream

1 vanilla bean, or 2 tsp vanilla extract

Grated zest of a large orange

6. large egg yolks

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light-brown sugar, or more if needed

Equipment: Eight 4-ounce ramekins (small souffle molds); a wire whisk; a sieve; a mixing bowl and a large (4-cup) measuring cup; a baking pan with 2-inch sides, large enough to hold all the ramekins; a propane blowtorch (optional)

Making the custards: Preheat the oven to 350. Pour the cream into a 6-cup saucepan, stir in the vanilla bean or vanilla extract and the orange zest, and bring to the simmer. Remove from heat, cover the pan, and let steep for 5 minutes.

Whisk the egg yolks and sugar in the mixing bowl for several minutes until the yolks are thick, pale yellow, and form a fat, slowly dissolving ribbon when dropped from the whisk back into the bowl.

Remove the vanilla bean from the hot cream (save it-you can use it again). So as not to scramble the egg yolks, stir by dribbles half a cup of the hot cream into the yolks, stirring (not beating--you do not want to form bubbles). Adding it in a slow stream, stir in the rest of the cream. Set the sieve over the quart measure and strain the custard mixture through it to eliminate any coagulated bits of egg and the orange rind. Skim off any bubbles from the surface of the custard.

Arrange the ramekins in the baking pan and pour or ladle 1/2 cup of custard into each, leaving 1/4 inch at the top for the glaze. Set the baking pan in the oven and pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the ramekins.

Bake the custards for 30 to 35 minutes, until the tops are set but the custard in the center is still quite soft to the touch. Carefully remove the baking pan from the oven, and lift the ramekins from the hot water. Let them cool briefly, then chill thoroughly in the refrigerator, at least 4 hours. Either serve them as pots de creme, or glaze them as follows.

Forming the brown-sugar crust: Loosen the brown sugar if packed and break up any lumps with your fingers. Sprinkle a tablespoon or so over each custard and smooth it gently with the back of a spoon, forming an even layer of sugar that completely covers the surface.

To make the crust with a blowtorch: Ignite the torch and direct the flame downward over a ramekin, always keeping the tip of the flame about 8 inches above the sugar. Move the torch around constantly, shifting the focus of the heat as the sugar melts. Heat each custard gradually-for 10 seconds or longer, depending on the power of the torch-until lightly caramelized all over.

If one section of sugar is darkening too fast, move the flame to another area, or start heating another ramekin. When all the custards have been crusted, give them a few moments to harden, then serve. .

To make the crust under a broiler: Set the ramekins in a heatproof tray or baking dish (lor 2 at a time if you are not sure how quickly your broiler will crust them). Turn on the broiler and place the ramekins underneath, so the surface of the sugar is about 5 inches below the heat. Leave the door open so you can watch as the sugar melts and starts

to caramelize. Turn the ramekins around if one side gets too brown, so that the glaze is consistent around. Remove the custards as soon as the sugar is turned to a smooth sheet of brown glaze. If it has blackened in spots, set the remaining custards lower or reduce the glazing time. If the ramekins have been heated by the broiler, chill them briefly before serving.

Light New York Cheesecake

Be sure to use light cream cheese, which is commonly sold in tubs. Don’t confuse light cream cheese with Neufchatel cheese, which is sold in blocks and is higher in fat. Allowing the cottage cheese to drain on towels for at least 30 minutes will ensure a firm cheesecake. You can buy yogurt cheese (also called Labne) or make your own, (see related recipe). If making your own cheese, you will need to allow at least 12 hours for the yogurt to drain. You can substitute fat free cream cheese for the yogurt cheese, but the cheesecake will have a slightly firmer texture.

Serves 12

Crust

9

whole graham crackers (5 ounces), broken into rough pieces and processed in a food processor to fine even crumbs (about 1 1/4 cups)

4

tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick), melted

1

tablespoon sugar 

Filling

1

tablespoon fresh lemon juice 

1

pound 1% cottage cheese 

1

pound light cream cheese , at room temperature

8

ounces yogurt cheese (see note)

1/4

teaspoon table salt 

1 1/2

cups sugar (10 1/2 ounces)

1/2 - 1

teaspoon lemon zest 

1

tablespoon vanilla extract 

3

large eggs , at room temperature

Vegetable cooking spray 

Fresh Strawberry Topping

1

pound fresh strawberries , hulled and cut lengthwise into 1/4- to 3/8-inch wedges

1/4

cup sugar 

Pinch table salt 

1/2

cup strawberry jam 

1. For the crust: Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 325 degrees. Mix the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar together in a medium bowl. Transfer the mixture to a 9-inch springform pan and press evenly into the pan bottom. Bake the crust until fragrant and beginning to brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack while preparing the filling.
2. For the filling: Increase the oven temperature to 500 degrees. Line a medium bowl with a clean dish towel or several layers of paper towels. Spoon the cottage cheese into the bowl and let drain for 30 minutes.
3. Process the drained cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth and no visible lumps remain, about 1 minute, scraping down the work bowl once or twice. Add the cream cheese and yogurt cheese and process until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes, scraping down the work bowl once or twice. Add the salt, sugar, lemon zest, and vanilla and continue to process until smooth, about 1 minute, scraping down the work bowl once or twice. With the processor running, add the eggs, one at a time and process until smooth.
4. Being careful to not disturb the baked crust, spray the sides of the springform pan with vegetable oil spray. Set the springform pan on a rimmed baking sheet. Pour the filling into the cooled crust and bake 10 minutes. Without opening the oven door, reduce the oven temperature to 200 degrees and continue to bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the cheesecake reads 150 degrees, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
5. Transfer the cake to a wire rack, and run a paring knife around the edge of the cake. Let cool until barely warm, 2 1/2 to 3 hours, running a paring knife around the edge of the cake every hour or so. Wrap the pan tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until cold, at least 3 hours.
6. To unmold the cheesecake, wrap a hot kitchen towel around the springform pan and let stand for 10 minutes. Remove the sides of the pan and blot any excess moisture from the top of the cheesecake with paper towels. Let the cheesecake stand at room temperature about 30 minutes, then cut into wedges.
8. For the Topping: Toss the berries, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl and let stand until the berries have released some juice and the sugar has dissolved, about 30 minutes, tossing occasionally to combine.
9. Process the jam in a food processor until smooth, about 8 seconds. Transfer the jam to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer, stirring frequently, until dark and no longer frothy, about 3 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, then gently stir the warm jam into the strawberries. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold, at least 2 hours or up to 12. To serve, spoon a portion of sauce over individual slices of cheesecake.

Rasberry Sauce

2 c. raspberries

¼ c. raspberry liquer

1 c. powdered sugar

3 T. lemon juice

Process in food processor and strain seeds out.
