Aleksander Torte Raspberry-Filled Pastry Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1/2 lb unsalted butter, chilled and
1 cut into bits
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup raspberry preserves (12 oz)
2 tbsp soft butter
2 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup cold water
2 tsp lemon juice

Recipe Preparation

In a large mixing bowl, combine the chilled butter, 3 cups of the
flour and the sugar and, with your fingertips, rub until the mixture
resembles flakes of coarse meal. Beat in the egg and continue to mix
until the pastry is smooth. Shape it into a ball, wrap it in wax
paper, and refrigerate 1 hour, or until the dough is form.

With the back of a spoon, rub the preserves through a fine sieve set
over a 1-quart saucepan, then cook over moderate heat, stirring
constantly, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until they thicken into a thin
puree. Set aside off the heat.

Preheat the oven to 250F. Cut the chilled pastry in half and shape
each half into a rectangle. One half at a time, roll the pastry
between two sheets of lightly floured wax paper into a rectangle
approximately 10 inches wide and 15 inches long. With a pastry
brush, coat each of 2 cookie sheets with 1 tablespoon of butter and
sprinkle them with flour, tipping the sheets from side to side to
coat them evenly. Then invert the sheets and tap them against a hard
surface to dislodge any excess flour. Peel off the top sheets of wax
paper and use the bottom ones to lift the 2 rectangles of pastry onto
the 2 cookie sheets. Peel off the remaining sheets of wax paper. Bake
40 minutes, or until the pastry begins to turn a pale gold. Watch
carefully for any sign of burning and regulate the heat accordingly.

With a metal spatula, spread the raspberry puree evenly over one
sheet of the pastry, covering it completely and smoothly. Slide the
second sheet of pastry gently onto the first.

With a spoon stir the sugar, water and lemon juice together in a large
mixing bowl to form a thin paste. Spread the icing over the top layer
of pastry with the spatula, and set the cake aside to cool to room
temperature. With a small, sharp knife or pastry wheel, slice the
Aleksander Torte into strips 1 inch wide and 2 inches long, cutting
the ends on the diagonal.

Food Tips of the Week

Diet tips

In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
The argument against low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one fact that is usually overlooked, it is very hard (though not totally impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carb diet.
Reducing carbohydrates may mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which must be part of any sensible diet, in particular those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes eschalot, chives and green onion)

The onion family of vegetables is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific evidence at hand, allyl sulfides are also thought by many researchers to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and diabetes.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
