Aly Miller By Aly Miller (The Nosher via JTA)-- Some recipe ideas come together on the first try, without any mess or fuss. Others are true labors of love, like grains that simmer and simmer but never get soft until some unexpected moment at the end. This recipe happens to be one of the latter.

Insured / Lic # EROOO6g02 407-886-1381 Master Electrician Using tahini instead of peanut butter is one of my classic moves, and I know I'm not the only one. Tahini adds a nutty flavor with a hint of bitterness that goes perfectly with asmooth, dark chocolate. Sometimes, sesame seeds themselves are called for. While in Amsterdam last year, I became obsessed with Lindt's sesame dark chocolate bar. The texture of crunchy, toasted seeds encased in velvety dark chocolate had me at "hello." With these flavor visions in mind, I began recipe testing tahini cream pie with a dark chocolate crust and a hidden layer of chocolate ganache at We are your source for: Brochures Letterheads Envelopes Business Cards Programs F1uers Post Cards Forms -Invitations Digital PhotographLj Labels Direct Mail Menus 8, More 1407.767.7110 www. elegant-printing, net 205 North Street Longwood, FL 32750 Mention This Ad and Receive on 18% Discount the bottom. It would be dairy free. perfect to serve after any meal. I've always loved the challenge of making rich, decadent desserts without dairy. My discerning roommates and neighbors enlisted themselves every weekend over the past few months as taste testers, happily devouring each and every version. We've had cookie crusts, shortbread crusts and almond crusts. A number of surprising ingredients, like tofu, coconut oil and even homemade cashew cream cheese found their way into the fillings. While each trial and error resulted in something magnificent, each had awrinkle to smooth. Normally I don't chase after such finicky ideas, but I believed in this pie--and it seemed to believe in me. In the end, the recipe with the simplest ingredients and easiest directions clearly won out. You won't find any tricky gluten-free ingredients or dairy substitutes in here--you might even have these items ready and waiting in your pantry. Since the directions are so easy, I think you'll find that the hardest part is waiting for it to chill! Nothing feels more right this week than to give something homemade and hard-won to the people I love. Finally, here's the recipe they've been waiting for! Ingredients: Crust: 1 1/2 cup walnuts 1 heaping cup pitted dates, soaked for 10 minutes (StatePoint) While make and model are still dominant factors on car lots, today's consumers have a new set of priorities, thanks to increasingly sophisticated in-vehicle technologies being offered in new cars. From connectivity systems that include voice command controls to technologies that make parking a cinch, today's consumers want more from their rides. In fact, nearly half of consumers--48 percent-- prioritize in-vehicle technology over brand or body style, according to the 2017 Autotrader Car Tech Impact Study. And they know what they want, too. The study found that consumers these days are researching the exact features they'd like to purchase before visiting the dealership. 2 tablespoons raw sesame seeds 1/3 cup cocoa powder i teaspoon salt, more to taste Filling: 2 cans full fat coconut milk chilled overnight in fridge (Certain brands will not whip. Thai Kitchen has worked best for me ) i cup tahini 4 tablespoons maple syrup or powdered sugar I teaspoon vanilla Ganache: 6 ounces semi-dark chocolate 4 tablespoons almond milk or dairy-free milk 3 tablespoons sesame seeds Materials: Either an 8-inch springform pan lined with parchment paper or a 9-inch pie plate. Hand mixer or stand mixer and a food processor. Directions: First, chill a tall glass or metal mixing bowl in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make the crust: In a food processor, blend the walnuts, drained dates, sesame seeds, cocoa powder and salt until the mixture looks blended throughout. Walnuts should be processed into small pieces, and dates should be smooth like a paste. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of your pie pan of choice. If you want to use a springform pan (so as to display the pie without a plate), be sure to line it as best you can with parchment paper. Use your fingers to press the crust in an even layer on the bottom and sides. Next, make the chocolate "What once seemed like something only for 'The Jetsons' is quickly becoming everyday reality in the automotive landscape," says Brian Moody, executive editor forAutotrader. "And it's not just vehicles with a high price-point. Many mainstream family cars are now equipped with technology features only seen on top-of- the-line luxury vehicles just a few short years ago." Experts say that while consumers should embrace the convenience and enhanced safety offered by new-car technology, they also need to educate themselves so they fully understand what these features can--and just as importantly, what they cannot--do. "Understanding your car can help you become a better, safer driver," says Moody. However, the future may ganache: Place chocolate in a double boiler and let melt for a minute or two. Then add milk, whisking until your ganache has a smooth, even consistency. Spread ganache onto the bottom of the pie and top with sesame seeds. Place in the refrigerator or freezer to firm up. Last, make the filling: Remove the cans of coconut milk from the refrigerator and open them. Carefully scoop out the hardened, creamy top layer (about half the can) into your chilled bowl. Try not to scoop any of the coconut water that sits below the cream into the bowl. Pour the coconut water into another container to use in smoothies. Next, with the mixer turned off, break the chunks of coconut milk into smaller pieces by pressing the blender into the hardened coconut cream. Mix on the lowest setting until it comes together as a stiff, whipped cream texture, gradually mixing faster. Add the tahini, vanilla and powdered sugar or maple syrup. Blend until smooth, about 30 more seconds. Remove the pie from the fridge and spread the filling atop the ganache. Refrigerate for 2-3 more hours and serve!
