This is a flexible schedule class. There are NO LIVE MEETINGS for this class; the classes are pre-recorded lessons. This means, your child can make these desserts when it's convenient for you! In this 4-week class, we'll make two popular Mexican recipes, and two American dessert recipes. We'll make chilaquiles, Mexican street corn (elotes), a chocolate tart and a pecan pie. Please note that the desserts are full-size, family desserts. They have some potential allergens in the ingredients,...
Students will be able to make 2 Mexican recipes and 2 American desserts from scratch.
1 file available upon enrollmentBASIC PIE CRUST INGREDIENTS (optional) 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup (2 sticks or 225 grams) unsalted butter, frozen and cut into small cubes 3 tablespoons ice water 2 tablespoons vodka *You only need this if you choose to make a homemade pie crust for the pecan pie. Alternatively, you could just buy a pie crust and skip all of these ingredients.* *************************** PECAN PIE INGREDIENTS You will need to make the BASIC PIE CRUST recipe, so please see the ingredients above for the basic pie crust. OR, you will need a store-bought pie crust. For the pecan pie filling, you'll need: 4 large eggs, room temperature 1 cup maple syrup, or corn syrup (or honey, or agave syrup) 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (optional. I'll leave it out because I think the maple syrup is sweet enough.) 2 teaspoons corn starch 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 cup (about 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted 2 1/2 cups (one 10-oz bag) pecan halves ********************** CHOCOLATE TART INGREDIENTS The chocolate tart has its own special crust. You do not need to make the basic pie crust from week 1 for this recipe. All the ingredients for the chocolate tart crust are included in the following list: -2 sticks of butter -0.5 cups powdered sugar -4 eggs -1.5 cups all-purpose flour -2 Tablespoons cocoa powder -0.25 teaspoons salt -0.3 cups water -1 teaspoon instant coffee granules -1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips -1 tablespoon vanilla ****************** CHILAQUILES INGREDIENTS (For the salsa verde) -1 lb of tomatillos (They look like green tomatoes with a weird paper skin around them.) -1 medium white onion -1 chicken bouillon cube -1 bunch of fresh cilantro -2 cloves of fresh garlic -1 or 2 serrano chili peppers, or 1 large jalapeno pepper (Use a jalapeno if your family does not like really spicy food, or leave the chilis out entirely.) (For the filling) -1 bag of totopos (These are thick, very crunchy CORN tortilla chips.) -1 lb of shredded, cooked chicken or beef (Leftover rotisserie chicken would be fantastic!) -Crumbled feta or cotija cheese, for topping the chilaquiles (optional) -Sliced fresh onion for topping the chilaquiles (optional) -sour cream or cream for topping the chilaquiles (optional) ***************** ELOTES INGREDIENTS -as many ears of corn as your family wants to eat -mayonnaise -fresh limes, at least 4 or 5 -a Mexican chili powder, like Tajin or Miguelito (If you can't find it, maybe a LIGHT sprinkling of cayenne pepper would work. It definitely doesn't taste that same, but you gotta do what you gotta do!) -cotija cheese (or crumbled feta, if you can't find cotija)
Assessment is informal. I'll check out the photos of kids' recipes, and also take their questions in the virtual classroom to help them out.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents please note that students will use some potentially dangerous kitchen equipment, including: an oven, knives, and a food processor. Supervision is advised, especially for younger children. ALLERGEN ALERT: These recipes contain allergens, which include (depending on the recipe): wheat flour, butter, nuts and eggs. Please carefully check the SUPPLY LIST for each recipe if your child has allergies.
