Pastry p arade By Susan Lowe Pastry is such fun to make and takes so many intriguing forms that any of us could easily come up with a different pastry for each day in the year. And we can make pastry using our own basic-recipes or we can use packaged mixes. Such a pastry parade includes an endless choice of the most delectable pies, many with new and interesting fillings. We can add variety with deep-dish pies, turnovers -with tangy sauce or whipped cream topping, apple stack pies, unusual chiffon pies, French pastry, ice cream pies, and tortes. Festive little tarts join the parade of party going pastries. Rich and elegant, they provide an element of surprise. You can serve them with the meal—at tea time—or after dinner in the living room. We've a recipe you may want to -try soon which, though really pastry, is known as St Honore Cake. This famous and unusual pastry is served in France on May 16 each year to honor St Honore, patron saint of pastry makers and bakers. Its often served with a tiny lighted candle in each miniature. You can use packaged mixes for the cream puff portion and pastry mix for the pastry portion or you can substitute your own recipe for cream puffs and a single pie crust Dream desserts such as this will mark a highlight in your parade of pastries for the year!
