Citrus Pie Recipe
June 18, 2012
This month’s Sweet Adventure is hosted by The Capers of the Kitchen Crusader. Browsing through this month’s Australian Gourmet Traveller Magazine (June 2012) I came across a recipe for Shaker Lemon Pie by Alistair Wise. I really liked his method for making the pie filling so decided to give it a go. I have adapted his recipe to create this Citrus Pie Recipe. I have lemons from our tree at the moment and added mandarin for some sweetness. I enjoy cooking with mandarin and have been adding them to most of my cakes lately. They give my carrot cake a burst of sunshine and sweetness.
These pies have a jaffa flavour with the intensity of lemon kicking in the background. I really enjoyed them. They are not too sweet. They are a perfect winter evening pick-me-up. If you are visiting the home of A Fresh Legacy in the coming months, expect to be served these hot winter citrus pies.
Get baking and keep warm!
Makes: 6 individual pies (tin size 11cm)
Preparation time: 20 minutes plus time to freeze the citrus and let it stand with the sugar overnight
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Note: Due to the resting time, this recipe should be started the day prior to cooking it
I am looking forward to reading some of the other Sweet as Pie entries.
What is your favorite pie combination to warm you through on a chilly winter evening?
