When making Apple Pie….

I found these helpful hints on the Honest Cooking website (http://honestcooking.com/)…….

Whether stuffed or baked for a side dish or a dessert or chopped up and hidden under a layer of dough or crumble topping, these apples hold their shape during cooking.

* Rome apples are very large with green-speckled red skin. This variety makes an impressive dessert when baked whole.

* Extra tart with thick, “apple green” skin, Granny Smiths are the perfect opposite to the sweeter baking apples, like Golden Delicious, for balanced pies and crisps.

* Braeburn apples are very crisp, sweet and tangy, making them great for baking or eating raw.

* Golden Delicious are excellent all-purpose apples that are particularly good in pies and crisps.

* Jonagold apples have a honeyed sweetness and crisp yellow flesh. This variety holds its shape during baking or sautéing.

On to the recipe for the BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018.

BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES

This blueberry cheesecake truffles recipe was developed exclusively for Nuts.com and our customers by the talented Anya Kassoff and Masha Davydova. This mother daughter team share their ideas about tasty and nourishing cooking on their website, Golubka Kitchen.
These blueberry cheesecake truffles are as decadent as they get, as well as vegan and made entirely of whole foods that are as good for you as they are delicious. Cashews, cacao and coconut butters yield their richness to these truffles and create a heavenly, buttery texture, while being amazing sources of healthy fat.
The blueberry powder that colors these treats a stunning purple is a great option for satisfying an out-of-season blueberry craving. It’s made of freeze-dried blueberries and retains many of the antioxidants and vitamins found in fresh blueberries, and tastes delicious to boot.
These truffles are sweetened with your choice of maple syrup or honey and get their characteristic, tart cheesecake flavor from the addition of fresh lemon juice and zest – all ingredients that we can stand behind for this indulgent yet wholesome treat.

Blueberry Cheesecake Truffles

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 30 truffles

Blueberry Cheesecake Truffles
Ingredients

fat from one 13.5 oz can full fat coconut milk (see note)
1 1/2 cups (about 120 g) organic raw cacao butter – shredded or chopped
1 cup coconut butter/manna
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
1/2 cup raw cashews – soaked in purified water for 4 hours
juice from 3 organic lemons
zest from 1 organic lemon
pinch sea salt
3 tablespoons blueberry powder – divided
desiccated coconut – for coating

Instructions

1 – Combine the coconut fat, cacao butter and coconut butter in a medium saucepan. Gently melt over very low heat, whisking until all the butters are incorporated into an even mixture. Add in the maple syrup or honey and whisk to combine until smooth.
2 – Drain and rinse the cashews and combine them with the lemon juice in an upright blender until smooth. Add the zest and salt and pulse to incorporate.
3 – Whisk the cashew mixture into the melted butters until fully combined. Evenly distribute the mixture between two medium bowls. Add 1 tablespoon of blueberry powder to one of the bowls and whisk to combine. Cover both bowls and place into the refrigerator until the mixtures are set, but still scoopable, about 1-2 hours.
4 – Prepare a large, parchment paper-covered tray or cutting board, along with two small bowls filled with the remaining 2 tablespoons of blueberry powder and desiccated coconut. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the truffle mixture at a time, rolling it into a ball between the palms of your hands. Roll each truffle in the desiccated coconut or blueberry powder (I rolled the white truffles in blueberry powder and the purple ones in desiccated coconut) and place onto the prepared tray. Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
Notes

To get the fat to separate from the water in a can of full-fat coconut milk, place the jar into the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. All the fat should accumulate and harden at the top of the can.
