Rhubarb and Strawberry Tart With Cheesecake Filling Recipe
Yields 8 servings.

1 1/4 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup almond or hazelnut meal
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 stick unsalted butter, cold, cubed
1 egg
2 tablespoons water

2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 cup sliced ripe rhubarb
Scant 1/2 cup sugar, divided
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar glaze
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 egg yolk

1/4 cup almond or hazelnut meal
1 tablespoon coarse sugar (like turbinado)
2 tablespoons butter, cubed

To make crust: Place flour, nut meal, sugar and salt in bowl of food processor and pulse to combine. Add butter and process until coarse meal forms. Whisk egg with water and add to bowl. Process until dough comes together. Turn out onto plastic wrap and knead into ball, then flatten to disk shape and wrap up tightly. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Turn disk out onto large square of floured parchment paper — it’s helpful to tape it to your work surface. Using rolling pin, roll out crust to fit two-piece 11-inch tart pan, about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer crust to tart pan by inverting pan over crust, then picking up parchment paper and flipping it over. Carefully peel off paper. Press dough up sides of pan; fold overhanging dough back onto itself to 1/4 inch above edge of pan. Place tart pan on baking sheet and refrigerate while you prepare the filling.
To make filling: In large bowl, toss together strawberries, rhubarb, 1/3 cup sugar, balsamic vinegar glaze, cornstarch and salt. Set aside to blend for about 30 minutes.

In separate bowl, beat cream cheese, remaining sugar and egg yolk until smooth.

Spread in crust. Using slotted spoon to drain liquid, top with strawberry-rhubarb mixture. Discard liquid.

To make topping: In small bowl, combine all topping ingredients. Spoon over tart. Place tart in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
To bake: Preheat oven to 425 F. Place baking sheet with tart on lower oven rack and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is golden. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before slicing.

Butterscotch Pie Recipe

This butterscotch pie won first place at the 2010 Iowa State Fair for Mindy Paulson of Pie on Sunday blog fame.

1 - 9-inch baked pie crust -

1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups whole milk
3 large egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces

1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans

To prepare checkerboard pie crust: Roll out dough and ease into pie pan. Trim crust. Make cuts through the dough at approximately ½-inch intervals and approximately ½-inch long. Carefully fold every other section up and toward center of pie to create checkerboard appearance. Line pastry with parchment paper and fill with pie weights. Bake in 450° oven for 8 minutes. Remove parchment paper; bake 5-6 minutes more or until golden. Cool.

To prepare filling: Combine brown sugar, flour, milk, egg yolks, and salt in saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking until mixture thickens and starts to boil, about 6-7 minutes. Continue to cook, whisking rapidly, for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat; whisk in vanilla and butter, one piece at a time. To cool, transfer filling to a bowl and chill over an ice water bath, stirring occasionally, until completely cooled. Transfer filling to pie shell, cover surface with plastic wrap, and chill in refrigerator for several hours or overnight.

To prepare topping: In large bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form, gradually adding the sugar during beating. Add vanilla and beat until nearly stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream over pie and top with chopped pecans
