Winegrower's pie

Make a wine jam: pour 1 bottle of Chinon red wine (yes, it is a regional recipe!) into a saucepan with 1 pinch of cinnamon and 250g of jelly sugar. Mix and boil for about 20 minutes until the mixture starts to thicken.

Then leave to cool and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Peel and cut 3 or 4 Golden apples into very thin slices. Roll out a puff pastry on a buttered and slightly sweetened baking sheet (this will caramelise slightly), prick it and arrange the apple slices in a row. Sprinkle with 3 tbsp. brown sugar. Bake for about 30 minutes in a preheated oven at 350°F. Once the pie has cooled, spread the wine jam over the top and sprinkle just the outline with icing sugar.


Apple and rhubarb pie

Fry 3 apples and 500g of rhubarb cut into small pieces, in a saucepan for about 10 minutes with 25g of sugar and 1/2 glass of water. In the meantime, prick with a fork and bake a puff pastry (with butter) at 350°F for 10 minutes.
In a bowl, beat 2 eggs and add 20cl of liquid cream, a few drops of liquid vanilla and 75g of powdered sugar.

Sprinkle the pre-cooked pastry with 50g of almond powder, arrange the fruits and pour the mixture over it. Bake for about 35 minutes at 350°F.

Enjoy warm ;-)

Chocolate sausage with marshmallows

Gently melt 200g of dark chocolate with 100g of salted butter. Whisk to obtain a smooth chocolate. Remove from the heat and add 1 whole egg and 100g icing sugar. Cut 150g of biscuits into small pieces, cut 4 marshmallows into 8 pieces and mix with the melted chocolate. Pour this mixture onto a sheet of baking paper placed on a sheet of aluminium foil. Fold the foil around the mixture to give it a sausage shape.

Place the sausage in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours to harden.


Coconut rochers

In a bowl, beat 3 egg whites with a fork and mix with 120g caster sugar. Then add 125g of grated coconut. Mix well and form balls with a spoon on a baking tray covered with baking paper.
Bake for 13 minutes at 400°F.


You can store them in an airtight box.

Mirabelle plum tart

Traditional recipe from Lorraine.
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spread your shortcrust pastry in a buttered pie dish, without forgetting to prick the bottom. Pre-cook the pastry base for 10 minutes.
During this time, remove the stones from 500g of mirabelle plums, which you will then arrange on the tart base: form circles with the domed part of the mirabelle plum facing upwards.
Beat 1 egg with 3 tablespoons of cream and 1 sachet of vanilla sugar. Spread the filling evenly. Bake for 20 minutes (as soon as the top caramelises, your tart is ready!)
You can serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream ;-)

Banana Bread

Mix 175g of sugar with 100g of melted salted butter. Add 2 or 3 ripe bananas, mashed with a fork, and 2 eggs to the mixture. Dissolve 10g baking powder in a little milk for 5 minutes and then add 200g flour with a pinch of cinnamon.

Mix everything together and pour into a buttered cake tin.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F.

Enjoy cold or hot, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream ;-)

Lemon cake

Whisk 4 eggs with 200g sugar until the mixture whitens. Add 200g of melted salted butter, then 100g of sifted flour and finally 1 teaspoon of yeast.
Add the zest of one lemon and its juice.
Pour into a buttered cake tin and bake for 40 minutes at 400°F.
Once the cake has been removed from the mould and cooled, sprinkle with icing sugar.


Pastry flan

Whisk 125 ml of milk with 3 eggs, 100g of cornflour and 1 spoonful of liquid vanilla. In the meantime, boil 875 ml of milk with 160g of sugar and 1 vanilla pod cut in half lengthways in a small saucepan. While continuing to whisk the egg/milk/cornflour mixture, add your boiling sweetened milk (remove the vanilla pod beforehand). Pour the resulting mixture into the pan and return to medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 1 minute so that the mixture thickens slightly.
Pour the cream onto 1 shortcrust pastry rolled out thinly in a mould and bake for 50 minutes at 350°F. After 30 minutes, cover with aluminium foil so that the flan does not get too toasted on top.

Leave to cool and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours. Enjoy chilled!

White chocolate stars

Prepare a ganache: bring 20cl of liquid cream to the boil. Add 100g of white chocolate, cut into pieces. Mix well with a whisk and put in the fridge. When the cream has cooled, whip it into a light chantilly.
Prepare a shortcrust pastry: pour 230g of flour, 20g of almond powder, 80g of sugar and 1 sachet of vanilla sugar into a bowl. Add 150g of melted salted butter cut into small cubes.
Work with your fingertips so as not to heat the butter too much and obtain a sandy mixture.
Add 1 egg yolk and mix everything together without kneading too much. Form a ball as soon as the dough is homogeneous. Wrap it in cling film and leave it to rest in a cool place for 30 minutes.
Take the shortbread dough out of the fridge and roll it out to a 2 mm thick rectangle. Shape the dough into stars with cookie cutters of different sizes.
Place the stars on a buttered baking tray and bake for 15 minutes at 350°F.
Once the shortbread has been removed from the oven and cooled, assemble it with a touch of ganache.
Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
