ecb, that looks lovely how did you make it ?
It was terribly easy ... Says the girl who has previously made her own pastry perhaps 5 times ever .. So it must have been easy.

For a 500g loaf pan

225g white flour
50 g strong white flour
35 g butter
50g marg
100 ml water

Rub butter and flour together. Heat up marg and water to almost boiling point then add to flour and bring together to dough using a spoon. Knead to smooth dough (watch out hot) then roll out 3/4 of the dough for the base. Line the base with parchment (a long strip that hangs out either side so you can get it out of the loaf pan when cooked). Line with pastry. Fill with alternate layers of stuffing (I used sage and onion with added apricot) turkey (or whatever meat you have) and cranberry sauce. (I had to make the cranberry sauce using dried cranberries as couldn't find fresh or a bottle of sauce). Pop the lid on - sealing well using tepid water. Decorate according to taste and brush liberally with egg wash. Cook for 1 hour 15 mins at 180. Turn it out of tin for last 15 mins and brush sides with egg wash to allow them to colour up too.

It was amazingly easy and the result in terms of looks really surprised me ..it looked really good even if I say so myself .. and the the taste ... Well, suffice it to say in this family we have agreed next Christmas Day it's turkey pie as it tasted sooooo good!

Another picture because I am so proud

Thank you It's actually rather quite simple:

1. 1 x Cremissimo "Rome and Juliet" or Wildberry ice cream
2. 1 x Ehrmann Family Vanilla Pudding
3. 1 x packet of any powdered sugar crisps (any brand)
4. 1 x Classic canned cream "Sprühsahne wärmebehandelt" 30% fat
5. 1 x box of Christmas sweets full of cookies in shape of stars
6. 1 x canned fruit salad (any brand)

A bit of fantasy and imagination - here we go

Bon appetite!

Thank you!
A couple questions:
- I haven't seen Ehrmann/Cremissimo brand in CH - where can I find them?
- what are sugar crisps in German?
- is Sprühsahne wärmebehandelt the whipped cream in cans aka Schlagrahm?

thanks again

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Leftover vitello tonnato, anchovies in green sauce, and perhaps some pasta.

Tomorrow, various ham-based items.

Daughter is making up a few quiches with various ingredients to bring to work in the trunk of her scooter.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

This, zemlbába. I vaguely remember this in England when I lived there. But this is our regional variation, with left over Christmas sweet zopf (vánočka), ton of quark with vanilla, zwetchken soaked in rum, banana with lemon zest.

I wonder if there's a word for it in English, I'd say pudding, but it seems different.

I guess you're thinking of bread and butter pudding which is a similar concept. Slices of buttered bread, raisins, sultanas or other dried fruit and a sort of vanilla custard. Some people also add lemon zest ( or other variations like chocolate, banana etc).

That might be it, thanks!

I admit I prefer rum soaked prunes to sultanas.

Ahoj, babičko!

The custard I don't miss either, quark with lemony bananas turns it into a sweet, cheese-cakey pie. It's great, baked just until the quark curds, hardens. Yum. If anyone wants to try it, don't over do the rum in prunes or they get bitter.

Where do you get RoTel tomatoes around here?

Anyway, last night was home-smoked salmon, tuna, and scallops.

From my pantry, of course. (We occasionally have guests from Texas, and there's a list of accepted 'currencies' with which they can 'pay' for their room & board.)

I'd be surprised to learn that anybody sells it here.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Latterini fritti, followed by spaghetti alle vongole.

Picked up the ingredients in Italy on the way home after dropping off the kid at MXP to freeze in New York for a few days while waiting for her delayed connection to LAX.
