Strain to remove seeds. At this point (before liqueur is added), remove 1/4 cup (60 mL) of the pure and reserve for filling. Stir liqueur into remaining pure. Refrigerate until ready to serve. (Best if made 24 hours ahead.) Cake Roll: Preheat oven to 375. Prepare baking pan by greasing sides and placing parchment or wax paper in bottom of pan. Stir together dry ingredients except coffee and sugar. Set aside. http://www.recipesnoop.com

Place eggs in a bowl of hot tap water for 3 minutes to bring to room temperature. Separate eggs. In small narrow bowl, blend together yolks, rum flavoring and coffee granules. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar and beat on high speed until thick, about 5 minutes. Set aside. Clean beaters well in preparation for next step. In larger bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup sugar and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. Briefly fold yolks into whites without being too thorough. Sift dry ingredients over egg mixture in three parts, and gently fold in until barely incorporated. Turn into prepared pan, and smooth to edges with as few strokes as possible. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until top springs back when gently pressed with finger. Do not overbake. As cake is baking, lay out a linen cloth larger than the baking pan, and sprinkle with sifted confectioners' sugar. As cake is removed from oven, immediately turn cake out onto prepared cloth. Gently remove parchment or wax paper from bottom. Grasping cake from the shortest side, (the 10" side), roll cake and towel together, so that towel remains inside the cake roll. Set aside to cool, seam side down. Filling: Combine cold water and 1 tablespoon liqueur. Sprinkle gelatin over and allow to soften for 2-3 minutes. Microwave on HIGH for 20 seconds and allow to stand for 2 minutes or until granules are completely dissolved. Combine reserved pure with gelatin mixture. Refrigerate until syrupy. (If it gels too quickly, simply warm again.) Whip cream with sugar and vanilla until stiff. Fold pure/gelatin mixture into sweetened whipped cream. Refrigerate until ready to use. Stir remaining 1 tablespoon liqueur into jam. Carefully unroll cake, remove towel and spread jam over unrolled cake. Top with mousse, sprinkle with fresh raspberries, if available. Roll up again, seam side down. Glaze: Warm glaze ingredients together in heavy saucepan over low heat, just until melted and smooth. Brush all crumbs from surface of cake roll. Pour approximately 1/4 of the glaze over the cake surface, using spatula to smooth a thin glaze, just barely sealing the surface. Refrigerate cake for 10 minutes. Reheat glaze so that it pours easily. (A small amount of half and half or light cream may be used if necessary to thin glaze.) Pour over entire cake roll (except ends) and allow to drip over and down sides, keeping use of spatula to a minimum. Refrigerate until ready to serve. http://www.recipesnoop.com

To Serve: Remove from refrigerator 15 - 20 minutes before serving. Place 2-3 tablespoons raspberry sauce on each dessert plate. Slice with a clean knife dipped in warm water and place a slice on each plate. Pass raspberry sauce around the table. Serves 8

The most beloved of French candies, the Truffle is fast becoming one of America's favorites, too. Our version has an optional cocoa powder dusting, (although in France, it is considered by many to be a requirement!) or a crunchy hazelnut outer coating. 3/4 cup unsalted butter 1 lb semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam 1/4 cup Raspberry Chambord or 1/4 cup Raspberry Chambord 1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder, (optional) 1 cup hazelnuts, roasted and finely chopped Cut butter into pieces and melt in top of double boiler or metal bowl over (but not touching) hot water. Add chocolate, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat. Blend in raspberry jam and raspberry liqueur, until smooth. Cover. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours; or refrigerate until firm, 4 hours or overnight. Place the cocoa or hazelnuts in a wide shallow pie pan. Using a melon-baller or a tablespoon, scoop about a tablespoon of the cold chocolate mixture between your palms and roll to form a round ball. Roll in desired coating and place on a sided baking sheet. Repeat until all the chocolate mixture is gone. Cover tightly with plastic wrap until ready to serve.

1 1/2 cups peeled pured kiwi, with seeds (approx. 6 to 7 kiwi) 4 Tbs lime juice (approx. 1 lime) 1 cup sugar 1/2 cup water 1 Tbs blackberry liqueur 1 cup frozen marionberries (generous cup) For best consistency, all ingredients should be chilled. Combine all ingredients except frozen berries and stir for several minutes until all sugar is dissolved. Transfer kiwi/lime mixture to ice cream freezer and process according to manufacturer's instructions. Layer sorbet with frozen berries into container, cover tightly and freeze at least two hours to harden. ICE TRAY METHOD If you do not have an ice cream freezer, here's an alternate method:Reserving frozen marionberries, pour the kiwi-lime mixture into a shallow pan so that the mixture is no more than 2" deep. An 8" cake pan, bread loaf pan or an ice cube tray with slats removed all make suitable containers. Cover with foil and freeze about 1 1/2 to 2 hours mixture will be almost firm, but still soft and pliable. (If you've waited a little too long, simply allow to thaw on counter a few minutes before cutting.) Remove from freezer, cut into chunks and transfer to mixing bowl. Beat with hand mixer just until slushy and smooth. Gently fold in frozen marionberries. Return to original pan, cover with foil and freeze until firm at least two hours. Remove sorbet from freezer 15 to 20 minutes before serving time, and place in refrigerator to soften before scooping. Serves 4

Light-Hearted Swiss Meringues with Raspberries


Treat your valentine with these melt-in-your-mouth meringues adorned with the flavor of raspberry and a thin layer of bittersweet chocolate. For a decadent dessert that is virtually fat-free, simply omit chocolate and nuts. MERINGUES 4 large egg whites, room temperature 1/2 tsp cream of tartar 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1/2 tsp almond extract RASPBERRY SAUCE 2 10-ounce packages frozen raspberries in syrup, thawed FILLING 1 pint light whipped topping or 1 pint light whipped topping, thawed 1 12-ounce bag whole frozen raspberries, partially thawed, so that ice crystals still remain 7 oz bittersweet chocolate, (such as Lindt or Tobler) 1/4 cup shelled and chopped pistachio nuts (for garnish), optional Place oven racks in lower and middle positions, and preheat oven to 225. Using waxed or parchment paper cut to fit baking sheets, trace eight 4" heart shapes about 1/2" apart. (Tart molds work great for this purpose.) Lightly grease waxed or parchment paper with cooking spray. Fit large pastry bag with 3/8" plain tip. Set aside. Meringue: Place egg whites in large mixing bowl and beat on low speed of electric mixer until foamy and white. Sprinkle cream of tartar over surface and continue beating. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons granulated sugar over egg whites and increase mixer speed to medium, whipping until soft peaks form. (COOK'S NOTE: Soft peaks are identified by meringue tips that fall over when mixer is lifted. Stiff peaks are identified by meringue tips which stand up and do not fall over when mixer is lifted.) Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition until sugar is dissolved and meringue feels http://www.recipesnoop.com

smooth when tested between thumb and index finger. (If meringue feels grainy, continue beating.) When meringue is smooth and stands up in stiff, glossy peaks, beat in almond extract. Sift powdered sugar over meringue and fold in until barely incorporated. Fill pastry bag with meringue and starting at top of heart, on outside edge, trace heart shape. Continue to inside without lifting tip they need not be perfect. (COOK'S NOTE: When tested, we found it easiest to start with bottom tip of heart facing you.) Repeat this procedure seven more times for a total of eight meringue hearts. With remaining meringue, pipe at least two small mounds about 1 1/2" in diameter amid hearts on each baking sheet. (These will be used to test meringues toward the end of baking time.) Bake 1 to 1 1/4 hours, rearranging baking sheets after 30 minutes so that the lower sheet is in middle position, and middle sheet in lower position. Meringues should be checked after one hour, and are done when test meringue is easily removed from baking sheet and breaks crisply after cooling for 5 minutes . Remove baking sheets from oven and allow meringues to remain on parchment for approximately 30 minutes, until cool. (At this point, if wrapped in plastic freezer bags and stored in airtight containers, meringues will keep for months.) Melt chocolate in double boiler over low heat. Dip four hearts so that about half of the heart is covered in chocolate, or use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over top. Set on waxed or parchment to harden. When chocolate has hardened, place in airtight containers until ready to serve. Sauce: Pure raspberries and syrup in blender or processor until smooth. Strain to remove seeds. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Makes about 2 cups. Filling: When ready to serve, spread softened frozen yogurt or whipped topping over four plain meringue hearts. Spoon raspberry sauce over this filling, adding partially thawed raspberries. Top each with chocolate-covered heart. Set meringues on dessert plates decoratively finished with raspberry sauce. Garnish with pistachio nuts. Serves 4

Raspberry Orange Sorbet


3 cups raspberries 1 cup sugar 1/2 cup water 1/4 tsp orange extract or 1/2 teaspoon orange extract AND 1 tsp finely grated orange zest 2 Tbs raspberry liqueur For best consistency, all ingredients should be chilled. Pure raspberries and strain through a fine sieve. Combine pure with other ingredients and stir for several minutes until all sugar is dissolved. Transfer berry mixture to ice cream freezer and process according to manufacturer's instructions. Spoon berry sorbet into covered airtight container and freeze at least two hours to harden.ICE TRAY METHOD If you do not have an ice cream freezer, here's an alternate method: (1) Pour the berry mixture into a shallow pan so that the mixture is no more than 2" deep. An 8" cake pan, bread loaf pan or an ice cube tray with slats removed all make suitable containers. (2) Cover with foil and freeze about 1 1/2 to 2 hours mixture will be almost firm, but still soft and pliable. (If you've waited a little too long, simply allow to thaw on counter a few minutes before cutting.) (3) Remove from freezer, cut into chunks and transfer to mixing bowl. Beat with hand mixer just until slushy and smooth. (4) Return to original pan, cover with foil and freeze until firm at least two hours. Remove sorbet from freezer about 15 to 20 minutes before serving time, and place in refrigerator to soften before scooping. Serves 4

Sweet Heart Pastry


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, unsifted 4 Tbs sugar (4 to 5 tablespoons) 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup butter, well-chilled, 2 cubes 4 Tbs orange juice, (water may be substituted) Combine first three ingredients in mixing bowl, and stir to blend. Slice each butter cube into 7-8 pieces. Using pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into flour mixture until all resembles coarse meal. Add orange juice (or water) by tablespoons, mixing gently with a fork just until dough begins to hold together in clumps. Gather pastry and divide into six 4 oz. disks. Wrap each disk in plastic. Chill for 30 minutes. On lightly floured wax paper, roll each disk into a circle at least 6" in diameter, and slightly less than 1/8" thick. Transfer to tart pans and gently press dough into each one, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim the overhanging pastry dough by rolling over edges with a rolling pin, creating a finished look. Pierce the bottoms with a fork, place on a rimmed baking sheet, and freeze at least 30 minutes.* Preheat oven to 375. Transfer tarts to another rimmed baking sheet which is at room temperature, line tarts with a light-weight aluminum foil or crumpled parchment, and fill with beans, rice or other pie weights. Bake while still frozen, on the lowest oven rack for 15 minutes. Carefully remove weights and foil or parchment. Return tarts to oven and bake approximately 15 minutes more, until deep golden brown. Cool on wire rack. *Pastry may be frozen at this point for up to 2 months, if wrapped well. Chocolate Pastry: For light chocolate pastry, replace 1/4 cup of flour with 1/4 cup of cocoa and use the higher amount of sugar. For darker chocolate crusts, replace 1/2 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of cocoa and use the higher amount of sugar. TART ASSEMBLY DIRECTIONS: Begin assembly 1-2 hours before serving time. Each 4" heart-shaped tart will require approximately 1 cup frozen berries. This is equivalent to about 4 oz. frozen raspberries or 5 oz. frozen blackberries for each tart. Spoon 3-4 tablespoons pastry cream into each pastry shell. Arrange evenly shaped frozen berries, stem-side down, over http://www.recipesnoop.com

the pastry cream, starting around the outside edge and working towards the center. Raspberries should be arranged in two layers, while blackberries may be arranged in a single layer due to their larger size. (Ideas for berry combinations might include all raspberry, all blackberry, half raspberry and half blackberry.) Refrigerate until ready to serve. Just prior to serving, spoon glaze generously over berries. Garnish with your choice of orange zest, fresh mint leaf or kiwi. For red raspberry pure tartlets, spoon 5-6 tablespoons pure into each pastry shell. Make decorative hearts by running a toothpick through droplets of vanilla cream you have strategically placed on pure surface. For vanilla cream tartlets, reverse this process, using red raspberry pure droplets on surface of the vanilla cream. (This procedure is not time-consuming, but you may want to practice a few times on the surface of a plate to perfect your technique.) Chill until serving time. Serves 6

Sweetheart Meringues with Crme Brle and Raspberry Sauce


This is a special occasion dessert great for Valentines day! 8 large California Fresh Egg Whites 2 cups granulated sugar CREAM BRULEE 3 cups heavy cream 8 large California Egg Yolks 1/3 cup granulated sugar 3 Tbs Raspberry Sauce RASPBERRY SAUCE 1 10-ounce package red raspberries frozen in syrup 2 Tbs orange flavored liqueur Preheat oven to 325F Whip egg whites until frothy, then gradually add sugar a little at a time, until sugar is dissolved and whites are very stuff. Using pastry bag and large plain tip, pipe meringue into 8 heart shapes about 3 inches across on parchment-lined baking sheet. Build the hearts up to about 1/2" in height. Bake about 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Let sit in oven with door open until cool. (This helps the meringues dry out thoroughly.) Place hearts on serving plates. Crme Brle Instructions: Mix egg yolks with granulated sugar until thoroughly blended. Whip in cream. Place in top of double boiler and heat, stirring constantly until the mixture coats the spoon in a thick layer. Remove from heat and stir in liqueur. Let cool slightly. Pour into meringue hearts and refrigerate for several hours. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the brulee to prevent a skin from forming or dot the surface, while still warm, with a stick of butter so that a thin film of fat is on the surface, protecting it from the air. Raspberry Sauce Instructions: Thaw raspberries. Dessert Assembly: Place two or three dollops of raspberry sauce around the brulee-filled hearts. Garnish with a couple of fresh raspberries and mint leaves. http://www.recipesnoop.com

Use caution and care when separating eggs. Make sure that no egg yolk gets into the white. The fat in the egg yolk will prevent the whites from whipping. If suitable for the recipe, add a source of acid, such as lemon juice or cream of tartar before you begin the whipping process. This stabilizes the foam and prevents it from separating quickly after whipping. Start whipping slowly to begin the aeration process, then increase the speed to a rapid whip to develop the foam. When adding the sugar, test the meringue by rubbing a little between the fingers. Serves 8
