Here is my version of π or pie, however you call it. Not only it looks interesting, but is is amazingly delicious! You can expand your imagination and create beutiful and unusual engravings as I did. It is simple and you will like it! I am sure.
So what about π? How do you mix maths with cherrys, jam and dough? Hmm ... sounds awkward indeed. The ratio of any circle's circumference to its diameter .... π = 3.141592653..... wait wait ... you put it in the oven and then eat it?! I am confused now.
Ok, let me explain this to you just follow the steps and you will get the idea.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour - read here how you can measure it right!
- 1 teaspoon table salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 200 grams cold unsalted butter
- some cold water
- A jar of fruit compote - any fruit will work, so it is your choice
- Food processor, dough cutter, or fork & knife
- Kitchen alluminium foil
- Rolling pin
- Soldering iron for the ingraving
Step 2: Making The Dough
2. Add the butter to the mixture in battches scraping it into small pieces. This will help you mix the ingredients easier.
3. Process the butter untill it blends well into the flour. Dough should just start to clump together into small pieces.
Step 3: .14 = pi You see that! :)
2. At this point you may need to add some water. Do not add more than 3 tablespoons of water at once.
3. Continue mixing the dough with a spatula using folding motion, pressing down on dough until it is slightly tacky and sticks together.
