BLUEBERRY CHIPOTLE AND APPLE PASTRY

Zowie! When you’re looking for a dessert that is pure dynamite, here’s your pot of gold. The perfect flavor combination of fresh apples and the earthy goodness of blueberries, plus that nice kick from chipotle chilies couldn’t help but please.

Prep Time:  25-30 minutes
Bake Time:  40 minutes

  • 1 refrigerated Pillsbury pie crust pastry
  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/3 cup Fischer & Wieser Roasted Blueberry Chipotle Sauce
  • 2/3 cup half and half
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 heaping teaspoon minced lemon zest
  • Vanilla ice cream, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Carefully fit the pie pastry into bottom and side of a 1-inch, removable bottom tart tin. Cut pastry off level with the top of the tin. Place the tin on a baking sheet. Scatter the apple slices in an even layer in the bottom of the pastry. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the Fischer & Wieser Roasted Blueberry Chipotle Sauce, half and half, beaten eggs, cinnamon and lemon zest. Whisk to blend thoroughly. Pour the mixture into the pastry and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until apples are crisp tender and pie is set. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack. When tin is cool enough to handle comfortably, carefully remove the side of the tin and transfer tart to serving plate. To serve, cut into eight wedges. Serve with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.

Roasted Raspberry Chipotle & Cheese Tarts

What a surprise for your taste buds when you bite into these decidedly different little tarts. Savory, sweet and just the right touch of heat!

Prep Time:  15 minutes
Bake Time:   10 minutes

24 pre-baked 3-inch tart shells
16 ounces cream cheese, softened and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup mascarpone cheese
2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 green onions, chopped, including green tops
1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ cup Fischer & Wieser The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce®

Preheat oven to 250°F. Place the tart shells on a baking sheet and gently re-heat them in preheated oven, approximately 10 minutes. While shells are heating, make the tart filling. Combine all remaining ingredients, except Fischer & Wieser The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce®, in food processor fitted with steel blade. Process until smooth. Turn out into a bowl and set aside. Remove the tart shells from oven and place approximately two tablespoons of the cheese mixture in each tart shell, spreading evenly. Pour about 2 tablespoons of Fischer & Wieser The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce® over the cheese. Serve warm.  Makes 24 tarts.
