THE MACHINE
INCLUDES:
1. Housing base with a
vertically projecting
shaft and convenient
touchpad control panel.
2. 11-cup work bowl.
3. Cover with extra large
feed tube.
4. Pusher assembly

The metal chopping blade
chops raw and cooked
fruits, vegetables, meat,
fish and cheese to the
exact consistency you
want, from coarse to fine,
even to a purée. It chops
nuts, makes nut butters,
mayonnaise and sauces,
and mixes tender, flaky
pastry. The metal chopping
blade also mixes cakes,
frostings, cookies,
quick breads, muffins,
and biscuits.
The PowerPrep® Metal
Dough Blade is specifically
designed to work in
conjunction with our DOUGH
control when making yeast
doughs. One touch of the
DOUGH button makes
“perfect dough in seconds”.
The slicing disc makes
beautiful whole slices
without torn edges. It slices
whole fruits and vegetables,
cooked meat, semi-frozen
raw meat and loaves of
bread.
The shredding disc
processes most firm and
hard cheeses into long,
attractive shreds. It also
shreds vegetables like
potatoes, carrots and
zucchini, and processes
nuts and chocolate to a
grated texture.
The detachable stem fits
both discs, making disc
storage compact in
limited space.
The pusher assembly
has two parts:
1. A small, removable,
clear pusher that fits into
a small center-located
feed tube. This tube is
for narrow food like
carrots, for adding liquid,
and for continuous
feeding of small food
like garlic.
2. A large pusher that fits
into the Cuisinart®
Supreme® feed tube
opening and moves
freely within it.
Upon contact, the large
pusher meets an activating
rod in the center of the
work bowl handle, permitting the motor to start.

OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS:
Try chopping some practice
foods, such as zucchini
or potatoes, before you
process food to eat. First,
cut the ingredients into
1-inch pieces of even size
and length.
• Place the work bowl over
the center stem, with the
handle area just left of
center. Turn counterclockwise to lock in place.
• Insert the metal chopping
blade and put ingredient
pieces in the work bowl.
Put on the cover and turn
counterclockwise to lock
onto work bowl. Align the
pusher and the pusher’s
activating rod with the
corresponding openings
on the feed tube, and
push all the way down.
• Press and release the
PULSE button two or
three times. Each time
the blade stops, let the
pieces drop to the bottom
of the bowl before you
pulse again. This puts
them in the path of the
blade each time the
motor starts.
• Using the pulse/chopping
technique, you get an
even chop without
overprocessing. Check
the texture frequently
by looking through the
cover. If you want a finer
chop, press and release
the PULSE button until
you achieve the desired
texture. Onions and other
food with a high water
content will quickly end
up as a purée, unless
examined through the
work bowl after each
pulse to make sure they
are not overprocessed.
Try chopping other food like
meat for hamburger
or sausage. Then make
mayonnaise, pastry or
bread, as described in
the following sections. To
obtain consistent results:
• Be sure all the pieces
you add to the bowl are
about the same size.
• Be sure the amount you
process is no larger than
amount recommended on
the inside cover of this
booklet.
Before you do anything,
wait for the blade to stop
spinning. Once it does,
turn the cover clockwise
to unlock, and remove by
lifting it off.
Remove the bowl from the
base of the machine before
removing the blade. This
creates a seal to prevent
food from leaking. Turn the
bowl clockwise to unlock
from the base, and lift
straight up to remove.
To prevent the blade from
falling from the work bowl
onto your hand when
emptying the work bowl,
use one of the following
methods.
Be sure your hands are
dry. Grab the blade hub,
and remove the metal
blade before tilting the
bowl, using a spatula to
scrape off any food. Then
carefully lift the blade out of
the work bowl. Or insert
your finger through the hole
in the bottom of the work
bowl, gripping the blade
from the bottom, and grip
the outside of the work
bowl with your thumb. Or
hold the blade in place with
your finger or spatula while
pouring out food.
TECHNIQUES FOR
CHOPPING AND
PURÉEING WITH
THE METAL BLADE
To chop raw fruits
and vegetables:
First, cut the food into
1-inch (2.5cm) pieces.
You get a more even
chop when all pieces are
about the same size.
Put no more than the
recommended amount of
food into the work bowl
(see table inside front
cover). Lock the cover in
place. Press the PULSE
button at the rate of 1
second on, 1 second off,
until the food is coarsely
chopped. For more finely
chopped results, hold
the PULSE button, letting
the machine run continuously until the desired
consistency is reached.
Check frequently to avoid
overprocessing. Use the
spatula to scrape down the
sides of the work bowl if
necessary.
To purée fruits and
cooked vegetables:
First, cut the food into
1-inch (2.5cm) pieces.
You get a smoother purée
faster when all pieces are
about equal in size.
Put no more than the
recommended amount of
food in the work bowl (see
table inside front cover).
Lock the cover in place.
PULSE to chop coarsely,
then press the ON button
and process continuously
until food is puréed.
(NOTE: Cooked potatoes
are an exception to this
procedure. They develop
a gluey texture when
processed with the
metal blade.)
unplug the machine,
remove the cover, lift the
blade out carefully and
remove the wedged piece.
Empty the bowl, reinsert
the blade and lock the
cover and pusher into
place. Press the ON button
and drop the food pieces
through the small feed tube
opening while the machine
is running. After adding
a cupful this way, add the
remaining food to the
bowl and process in the
usual manner.
To chop hard foods:
To chop hard food like
garlic and hard cheese,
assemble the unit, remove
the small pusher, press the
ON button and drop the
food through the small
feed tube while the
machine is running.
Small foods like garlic can
be dropped in whole. Large
foods like hard cheese
should be cut into 1-inch
(2.5cm) pieces. This method
of processing minces garlic,
shallots and onions. Hard
cheese and coconut will
have the same texture as if
they had been hand grated.
When making soup, you
will want to purée
vegetables that have been
cooked in liquid. Don’t add
the liquid to the work bowl,
just the cooked vegetables;
remove vegetables with a
slotted spoon. They will
purée faster and smoother
without liquid. Then add
just enough liquid to make
the purée pourable. Return
to the soup liquid and stir
to combine.
IMPORTANT: Never try to
process cheese that is too
hard to cut with a knife.
You may damage the
blade or the machine.
To dislodge food:
Add leaves to bowl and
process, using the PULSE
button, until chopped as
fine as desired. The more
herbs you chop at a time,
the finer chop you can
Occasionally, a piece of
food may become wedged
between the blade and the
work bowl. If this happens,
To chop parsley and
other fresh herbs:
The herbs, the work bowl
and the metal chopping
blade must all be thoroughly
clean and dry. Remove
stems from herbs.

obtain. If completely dry
when chopped, parsley and
other herbs will keep for at
least 4-5 days, stored in an
airtight bag in the refrigerator. They may be frozen for
months, stored in an airtight container or bag.
To chop peel from citrus
fruit or to chop sticky
fruit like dates or raisins:
For citrus, remove only
the peel with a vegetable
peeler, not the white pith
which is bitter tasting.
Cut the peel into lengths
of 2 inches (5cm) or less
and process with 1/2 cup
(125 ml) of granulated
sugar until finely chopped.
This may take 2 minutes
or longer.
For sticky fruit like dates,
raisins, prunes and candied
fruit, first freeze the fruit for
about 10 minutes. Add
some of the flour called for
in the recipe to the fruit.
Use no more than 1 cup
(250 ml) of flour for each
cup of fruit.
To chop meat, poultry,
fish and seafood:
The food should be very
cold, but not frozen. Cut
it into 1-inch (2.5cm) pieces
to ensure an even chop.
Using the ON button,
process no more than the
recommended amount at
one time (see table inside
front cover). Press the
PULSE button 3 or 4 times
at a rate of 1 second on,
1 second off. If the food is
not chopped fine enough,
let the processor run
continuously for a few
seconds.
Check the texture often to
avoid overprocessing. Use
a spatula to scrape food
9
from the sides of the bowl
as necessary.
To purée meat, poultry,
fish and seafood:
Prepare the food as
described above. Press the
PULSE button until evenly
chopped, then process
continuously to the desired
texture. Scrape the bowl
with a spatula as needed.
Leave the purée in the
work bowl and add eggs,
cream and seasonings as
called for by the recipe.
Process to combine
thoroughly.
Remember, you control
texture by the length of
time you process. By
varying the processing
time, you can get a
range of textures suitable
for hamburgers, hash,
stuffed peppers, or
smooth mousses.
To chop nuts:
Chop no more than the
recommended amount at
one time. Press and
release the PULSE button
and check frequently to
avoid nuts clumping
together in a nut butter.
When a recipe calls for
flour or sugar, add some to
the nuts before you chop,
about 1/2 cup for each cup
of nuts. This allows you to
chop the nuts as fine as
you want without turning
them into a nut butter. You
can also chop nuts with a
shredding disc. The
optional Fine Shredding
Disc is particularly good.
To make peanut butter
and other nut butters:
Process up to the
recommended amount
of nuts. Using the ON
button, let the machine run
continuously. After 2 or 3
minutes, the ground nuts
will form a ball that will
gradually smooth out.
Scrape the sides of the
bowl and continue processing until drops of oil are visible. Taste for consistency.
The longer you process,
the softer the butter. For
chunk style, add a handful
of nuts just after the ball of
nut butter begins to smooth
out. To make cashew butter, add a little bland vegetable oil. Processor nut
butters contain no preservatives. Store in refrigerator
to keep from separating.
To make flavored butters,
spreads and dips:
Cut room temperature
butter into tablespoon size
pieces. Finely chop flavoring ingredients first, such
as anchovies, cheese,
herbs, etc. Be sure work
bowl is clean and dry. Add
small hard ingredients like
garlic and hard cheese
through the feed tube while
machine is running. Next,
add the butter and process
using the ON button, until
smooth. Add any liquid
ingredients last, while the
processor is running, and
process just long enough to
blend. Process ingredients
for spreads and dips the
same way. They should be
at room temperature and
cut into 1-inch (2.5cm)
cubes, or added by tablespoonfuls
To make mayonnaise:
You can make foolproof
homemade mayonnaise
with your Premier Series 11
Cup Food Processor. The
work bowl and metal blade
must be clean and dry. Use
the metal blade to process
eggs (for safe food procedures, we recommend
using pasteurized liquid
eggs, or the "cooked egg"
recipe on page 52), salt,
vinegar or lemon juice, dry
mustard, and two tablespoons of the oil until
smooth, at least 30 seconds. With the machine running, pour 1/4 cup of the oil
into the small pusher. After it
dribbles through the pinhole
in the bottom, remove the
small pusher and very slowly add the remaining oil
while the machine runs.
Process until all the oil has
been added and the mixture
is totally emulsified. Remove
from the processor, cover
and keep chilled until ready
to use. Homemade
mayonnaise will keep in the
refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
For a "one egg" batch of
basic mayonnaise, use 1/4
cup of liquid pasteurized
eggs, 2 tablespoons vinegar
or lemon juice, 1 teaspoon
dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon
kosher salt and 1 cup vegetable oil, such as canola
oil. For variation, you may
experiment with using
flavored vinegars, or
adding chopped fresh
herbs, or even roasted
garlic to taste. To make
your mayonnaise a little
lighter, you may add some
well-drained nonfat plain
yogurt to taste.
To beat egg whites:
The work bowl must be
absolutely clean. Add 3 or
more egg whites (up to 6
large egg whites) and
press the ON button. Add
about 1 teaspoon of lemon
juice or vinegar for every
egg white. Vinegar makes
stiffer whites; its flavor is
hardly detectable in cakes
or soufflés. Continue pro-
cessing until the egg whites
hold their shape, about
1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes.
To whip cream:
Processor whipped cream
holds its shape very well.
It is good for decoration
or as a topping; however,
it will not whip to the light,
fluffy consistency obtained
by methods that beat in
more air. Chill the cream
well before starting. Process
continuously using the ON
button, until cream begins to
thicken. Then add sugar as
desired and continue processing, watching carefully
for the desired consistency.
For consistently reliable
results, add 2 tablespoons
(30 ml) of nonfat dry milk for
every cup of cream before
whipping.
To make crumbs
and crumb crusts:
Cut or break bread,
crackers or cookies into
1-inch pieces and place in
work bowl. Press the ON
button and process
continuously until crumbs
reach the desired texture.
For seasoned crumbs,
chop parsley or other fresh
herbs with the crumbs. For
buttered crumbs, process
until the dry crumbs are of
the desired texture, then
dribble melted butter
through the small feed tube
opening while the machine
is running. For crumb
crusts, process crackers or
cookies as described
above. Add sugar, spices
and butter, and cut into
pieces as specified by your
recipe. Process until well
combined.
To make pastry:
Combine unbleached
all-purpose flour, salt and
pieces of very cold butter
in the work bowl. Process
to the consistency of
cornmeal. Sprinkle evenly
with the minimum amount
of cold liquid in the recipe.
PULSE 5 or 6 times. The
dough should begin to hold
together when pressed. If it
is still dry and crumbly, add
more water – 1 teaspoon
at a time – until the dough
holds together easily. Do
not let the dough form a
ball in the processor or it
will be overworked and
tough. Form into a round
disc, one inch thick, and
wrap in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for 1 hour
before using, or double
wrap and freeze for
later use.
To make quick breads
and cakes that use baking powder and/or soda:
The most important rule
for success is not to
overmix after adding the
flour. The ingredients for
these soft doughs should
be cold. If the recipe calls
for chopped ingredients
like lemon peel or nuts,
chop them first while the
work bowl is clean and dry,
then set aside until needed.
Put dry ingredients like
flour, salt and leavening in
the work bowl and process
with the metal blade for
5 seconds to mix. Remove
and reserve the dry ingredients.
Add the eggs and sugar
to the work bowl and, using
the ON button, process to
mix, letting the machine run
about 1 minute. Next, add
butter, cut into 1-inch
pieces and at room temperature. Run machine continuously for a minute, until
the butter is thoroughly
10
mixed with the sugar and
eggs. Then add flavoring
and liquid – vanilla, spices,
cocoa, etc. Process until
mixed. Add the dry ingredients to the work bowl.
Process by pulsing,
inspecting after each pulse.
Stop pulsing as soon as
the dry ingredients have
almost disappeared into the
batter. Overprocessing will
cause quick breads and
cakes to be tough. (If your
recipe calls for ingredients
that are to be coarsely
chopped – like raisins or
nuts – add them last with
the mixed dry ingredients.)
To make cake mix:
Your food processor work
bowl is large enough for the
preparation of an 18.5-ounce
packaged cake mix.
Insert the metal blade and
add the cake mix to the
work bowl. Press the ON
button and while the
machine is running, add
the eggs and liquid through
the small feed tube and
process for 5 seconds.
Scrape down the sides of
the work bowl and process
1 minute more for maximum
volume. Do not remove the
metal blade.
Insert a finger into the
underside of the blade from
the bottom of the work
bowl, to hold the blade in
place while emptying the
batter.
Tip:
After emptying cake batter
or puréed soup from the
work bowl, replace the bowl
on the motor base and
PULSE once. Centrifugal
force will spin the batter off
the blade onto the sides of
the work bowl.
11
\Remove the blade, and
use the spatula to scrape
any remaining batter from
the bowl.
PREPARING FOOD
FOR SLICING AND
SHREDDING
For disc assembly
instructions, refer to
Assembly Instructions.
Round fruits and
vegetables:
Before processing onions,
apples and other large,
round fruits and vegetables,
cut the bottom ends flat to
make the food lie stable on
the disc.
Place the food in the feed
tube, flat side down, as far
left as possible, to prevent
it from tilting when being
processed.
Choose fruits that are firm
and not too ripe. Remove
large hard pits and seeds
from fruits before processing. Seeds from citrus fruits
need not be removed.
Remove the rind before
slicing or shredding,
if desired.
Whole peppers are
an exception:
Remove the stem and cut
the stem end flat. Remove
the core and scoop out the
seeds. Leave the end
opposite the stem whole, to
keep the structure stiff. This
ensures round, even slices.
Large fruits like pineapple:
Cut the ends flat, cut in
half, and either core or
remove the seeds. If necessary, cut the halves into
smaller pieces to fit the
feed tube.
Cabbage and
iceberg lettuce:
Turn the head on its side
and slice off the top and
bottom, leaving a center
section about 3 inches (8cm)
deep. Remove the core,
then cut in wedges to fit the
feed tube. Remove the core
from the bottom and top
pieces and cut into wedges
to fit into the feed tube.
The optional 2mm and 1mm
Slicing Discs are excellent
for slicing cabbage for
coleslaw.
If the fruit or vegetable
doesn’t fit, try inserting it
from the bottom of the feed
tube, where the opening is
slightly larger.
Pack the feed tube for
desired results:
For long slices or shreds,
cut the food in feed tube
widths and pack the
pieces horizontally.
For small, round slices or
short shreds from carrots,
zucchini and other long
vegetables, cut in feed
tube heights and pack
tightly upright.
Food should fit snugly, but
not so tightly that it prevents
the pusher from moving.
When slicing or shredding,
always use the pusher.
Never put your fingers
or a spatula into the
feed tube.
Never push down hard on
the pusher. Use light
pressure for soft fruits and
vegetables like bananas,
mushrooms, strawberries
and tomatoes, and for all
cheeses. Use medium
pressure for most food:
apples, celery, citrus fruit,
potatoes and zucchini.
Use firm pressure for hard
vegetables like carrots
and yams.
PRACTICING
SLICING AND
SHREDDING
1. Insert a slicing or
shredding disc, put the
cover on the work bowl
and insert the food in
the feed tube.
2. Slide the pusher into
place, and apply
pressure to the pusher
while pressing down
the PULSE button.
Release the button
as soon as the food
is sliced or shredded.
3. You can load the feed
tube repeatedly without
removing work bowl
cover. Simply grasp the
pusher and lift up. The
pusher assembly will
come off easily, leaving
the cover and feed tube
in place. Your other hand
is free to reload the feed
tube, and you do not
need to re-press the
ON button if it was
previously selected.
REMOVING
SLICED OR
SHREDDED FOOD
Before you do anything,
wait for the disc to stop
spinning. When it does,
unplug the unit, then hold
the work bowl handle and
turn it clockwise. Then lift;
the work bowl and cover
will come off together. Turn
cover clockwise to unlock
from work bowl. Lift,
remove, invert and place
on counter space.
Remove the slicing or
shredding disc:
feed tube and press the
sleeve all the way down.
Place two fingers under
each side of the disc and
lift it straight up. Place the
disc on top of the inverted
work bowl cover to
minimize drips and spills.
Cut the food in lengths
slightly shorter than the
feed tube. If slicing one or
two long, thin vegetables
like carrots, push them to
the far left. If you are slicing
a few vegetables that are
wide at one end and narrow
at the other (carrots, celery
or scallions), cut them in
half and pack in pairs,
alternating one wide end
up, one narrow end up.
TECHNIQUES
FOR SLICING AND
SHREDDING
Small, round fruits
and vegetables:
For large berries, radishes
and mushrooms, trim the
bottom ends flat with a
knife. Insert the food
through the feed tube,
standing each piece on a
flat end. You can fill the
tube to about 1 inch (2.5cm)
from the top. The bottom
layer gives you perfect
slices for garnish. If you
want all the slices to be
perfect, it’s best to process
one layer at a time.
French-cut green beans:
Trim fresh green beans to
feed tube widths. Stack in
the feed tube horizontally to
about one inch from the top.
Use the slicing disc, apply
light pressure to the pusher
and press the PULSE button until beans are sliced.
To make long, horizontal
slices of raw zucchini or
carrots, use the same
procedure.
Long fruits
and vegetables:
Matchsticks or
julienne strips:
Trim foods like bananas,
celery and zucchini by
cutting them into pieces
slightly shorter than the
feed tube. Cut both ends
flat. (Use a ruler as a guide,
or the pusher assembly.)
Process the food twice –
‘double slice’ it. Insert large
fruits or vegetables (potatoes, turnips, zucchini,
apples) in the feed tube.
Cut pieces to fit the feed
tube horizontally from end
to end. Apply pressure to
the pusher while pressing
the PULSE button until the
food is sliced. You will get
long slices.
Fill the feed tube with the
pieces, standing them
vertically and adding
enough pieces so they are
solidly packed and cannot
tilt sideways as they are
sliced or shredded.
Small amounts of food:
Use the small feed tube and
the small pusher. Remove
the small pusher from the
pusher assembly. Place the
pusher assembly onto the
Remove the slices from the
work bowl and reassemble.
The slices should be
assembled horizontally with
the cut edges facing front
and back. Reinsert them in
the feed tube, wedging
them in tightly. Slice them
again. You will obtain long
julienne strips. With the
12
optional Square Julienne
Disc, you can make square
julienne strips in one operation.
SLICING MEAT
AND POULTRY
Cooked meat and poultry:
The food must be very
cold. If possible, use a
piece of food just large
enough to fit in the feed
tube. To make julienne
strips of ham, bologna or
luncheon meat, stack
slices, then roll or fold them
double and stand upright in
the feed tube, wedging in
as many rolls as possible.
This technique works better
with square or rectangular
pieces than with round
ones.
Uncooked meat
and poultry:
Cut the food into pieces to
fit the feed tube. Boneless,
skinned chicken breasts
will usually fit when cut in
half crosswise. Wrap the
pieces in plastic wrap and
put them in the freezer.
They are ready to slice
when they are easily
pierced with the tip of a
sharp knife, although semifrozen and hard to the
touch. Remove plastic
wrap. Stand them in the
feed tube, cut side down,
and slice them against the
grain, using firm pressure
on the pusher. Or lay them
flat in the feed tube, as
many as will fit, and slice
with the grain, using firm
pressure.
thin enough to fit.
Otherwise, cut the sausage
into pieces to fill the large
feed tube completely.
Stand the pieces vertically,
packing them tightly so
they cannot tilt sideways.
Firm cheese like
Swiss and Cheddar:
Cut the cheese into
pieces to fit the feed tube.
Put it in the freezer until
semi-frozen, hard to the
touch but easily pierced
with the tip of a sharp knife.
Stand the pieces in the
feed tube and apply light
pressure to the pusher.
Salami and other
sausages:
IMPORTANT:
If the sausage is soft,
freeze it until hard to the
touch but easily pierced
with the tip of a sharp knife.
Hard sausages need not
be frozen. Use the small
feed tube if the sausage is
Never try to slice soft
cheese like mozzarella or
hard cheese like
Parmesan. You may
damage the slicing disc or
the food processor itself.

TECHNIQUES
FOR KNEADING
YEAST DOUGH
WITH THE
POWERPREP ®
METAL DOUGH
BLADE
Machine capacity:
Proofing the yeast:
Recommended maximum
amount of flour is 5 cups
of all-purpose flour or
2-3/4 cups of whole-grain
flour. If a bread dough calls
for more than the recommended amounts of flour,
mix and knead it in equal
batches. Do the same for
sweet doughs that call for
more than 3-1/2 cups
of flour.
The expiration date is
marked on the package.
To be sure your yeast is
active, dissolve it in a small
amount of warm liquid
(about 1/3 cup [75 ml] for
one package of dry yeast).
The temperature of liquid
used to dissolve and
activate yeast must be
between 105˚ and 115˚F
(40˚C and 46˚C). Yeast
cells are not activated at
temperatures lower than
this and they die when
exposed to temperatures
higher than 130˚F (54˚C). If
the recipe includes a
sweetener like sugar or
honey, add a teaspoon with
the yeast. If no sweetener
is called for, add a pinch, or
add a pinch of flour. The
yeast won’t foam without it.
Let the mixture stand until it
foams, up to 10 minutes.
The Premier Series 11-Cup
Food Processor is
designed to mix and knead
dough in a fraction of the
time it takes to do it by
hand. You will get perfect
results every time if you follow these directions.
NEVER TRY TO
PROCESS DOUGH
THAT IS TOO STIFF TO
KNEAD COMFORTABLY
BY HAND.
There are two general
types of yeast dough.
Typical bread dough is
made with a flour mix that
contains at least 50% white
flour. It is uniformly soft,
pliable and slightly sticky
when properly kneaded. It
always cleans the inside of
the work bowl completely
when properly kneaded.
Typical sweet dough
contains a higher proportion of sugar, butter and/or
eggs than typical bread
dough. It is rich and sticky
and it does not clean the
inside of the work bowl. It
requires less kneading after
Using the right blade:
Use the metal dough blade
when the recipe calls for
more than 3-1/2 cups
(17-1/2 ounces) (875 ml)
of flour. Use the metal
chopping blade when a
recipe calls for less than
3-1/2 (875 ml) cups of flour.
Because the metal dough
blade does not extend to
the outside rim of the
work bowl, it cannot pick up
all the flour when small
amounts are processed.
Measuring the flour:
It’s best to weigh it. If you
don’t have a scale, or the
recipe does not specify
weight, measure by the stir,
scoop and sweep method.
Use a standard, graduated
dry measure, not a liquid
measuring cup.
With a spoon or fork, stir
the flour in its container. Do
not measure flour directly
Processing dry
ingredients:
Put the flour in the work
bowl with all the other dry
ingredients. If the recipe
calls for herbs, oil or solid
fats like butter, add them
with the flour. Turn the
machine on and let it run
for about 20 seconds.
(Cheese, nuts and raisins
may be added with the dry
ingredients or during the
final kneading. To leave
them almost whole, add
them 5 seconds before you
14
stop kneading. For a finer
texture, add them sooner.)
Adding liquids:
All liquid should be added
through the small feed tube
while the machine is running. Add liquid in a slow,
steady stream, only as fast
as dry ingredients absorb
it. If liquid sloshes or splatters, stop adding it but do
not turn off the machine.
Wait until ingredients in
bowl have mixed, then add
remaining liquid slowly.
Pour liquid onto dough as
it passes under feed tube
opening. Do not pour
liquid directly onto bottom
of bowl.
Follow the recipe carefully.
It is important to add
enough liquid to make the
dough soft enough to
knead. Kneading dough
that is too stiff can strain
the machine.
All liquid, except that which
is used to activate yeast,
should be cold, to minimize
the possibility of overheating
the dough. You must never
knead a yeast dough to a
temperature higher than
100˚F (37˚C). Doing so will
slow or even prevent the
action of the yeast.
Kneading bread dough:
Do not try to use the
machine to knead dough
that is too stiff to knead
comfortably by hand. Doing
so can strain the machine.
After the dough starts to
clean the inside of the work
bowl completely and forms
a ball, process it for 60
seconds to knead it. Stop
the machine and test the
dough to be sure it’s properly kneaded. Typical bread
15
dough should have a soft,
pliable texture and it should
feel slightly sticky. Stretch
the dough with your hands
to test it. If it feels hard,
lumpy or uneven, continue
processing until it feels
uniformly soft and pliable.
Make sure that the blade is
firmly pressed back into
place after removing the
dough to test it.
Kneading sweet dough:
Process dough for at least
30 seconds after all the
ingredients have been incorporated. It will not clean the
inside of the work bowl. If
necessary, scrape the bowl
and process for 5 more seconds.
Rising:
When it has risen enough,
punch the dough down.
Shaping, finishing
and baking:
If you shape the dough
in loaf pans, fill pans only
half full. Let rise until dough
is just slightly above the
top of the pan. If shaping
free-form loaves, let them
rise on an oiled baking
sheet until at least
doubled in bulk.
Making consecutive
batches:
You can make several
batches of bread dough
in a row. The motor in
the Premier Series 11-Cup
Food Processor is extremely efficient.
Put the dough in a large,
lightly floured resealable
plastic bag. Squeeze out all
the air and close tightly,
allowing space for the
dough to rise.

Or put the ball of dough in
a large bowl coated with
soft butter or vegetable oil.
Roll the dough around to
coat its entire surface. Cover
it with a damp towel or a
piece of oiled plastic wrap.
If dough blade doesn’t
incorporate ingredients:
Let it rise in a warm,
draft-free place, about 80˚F
(26˚C). The rising time is
usually about 1-1/2 hours
but will vary from 45
minutes to several hours,
depending on the type of
flour and the humidity in
the air.
To test whether the dough
has risen enough, stick a
finger in it. An indentation
should remain. If it doesn’t,
let the dough rise more and
test again.
Always start processor
before adding liquid. Add
liquid in slow, steady
stream, only as fast as dry
ingredients absorb it. If you
hear liquid sloshing, stop
adding it but do not turn off
machine. Instead, wait until
ingredients in work bowl
have mixed, then add
remaining liquid slowly.
Pour liquid onto dough as it
passes under feed tube; do
not pour liquid directly onto
bottom of work bowl.
Blade rises in work bowl:
Blade may not have
been pushed down as
far as possible before
processing started.
Excessively sticky dough
can cause blade to rise
even though it cleans
inside of work bowl. If
dough feels very sticky,
reinsert blade and immediately add 2 tablespoons
(30 ml) flour through small
feed tube while machine
is running.
Dough doesn’t clean
inside of work bowl:
• Amount of dough may
exceed maximum capacity of your food processor.
Remove half and process
in 2 batches.
• Dough may be too dry.

for the motor to cool, 5-10
minutes. A safety protector
in the motor prevents
excessive overheating. If
the motor stops, turn
machine off. After 5-10
minutes, divide dough into
2 batches and complete

CLEANING AND
STORAGE
Keep your food processor
ready to use on a kitchen
counter. When not in use,
leave it unplugged.
Store the blades and discs
as you would sharp knives,
out of the reach of children.
The disc and blade holders
are optional accessories
which offer safe and
convenient storage.
All parts except the housing
base are dishwasher safe,
and we recommend washing them in the dishwasher
on the top rack only.
17
Due to intense water heat,
washing the work bowl and
work bowl cover on the
bottom rack of your dishwasher may cause damage
over time. Insert the work
bowl upside down.
Remember to unload the
dishwasher carefully wherever you place sharp
blades and discs.
To simplify cleaning, rinse
the work bowl, cover,
pusher assembly and blade
or disc immediately after
use, so food won’t dry on
them. Openings at the
bottom of the large pusher
provide drainage and make
cleaning easy. If food
lodges in the pusher,
remove it by running
water through it, or use
a bottle brush.
If you wash blades and discs
by hand, do it carefully.
Avoid leaving them in soapy
water where they may disappear from sight. To clean the
metal blade, fill the work
bowl with soapy water, hold
the blade by its plastic center
and move it rapidly up and
down on the center shaft of
the bowl. Use of a spray
attachment is also effective.
If necessary, use a brush.
The work bowl is made of
Lexan® (plastic), which is
shatter resistant and heat
resistant. It should not be
placed in a microwave
oven, as the aperture at
the front of the pusher
houses the metal rod that
activates the motor.
TIP:
When preparing a meal,
make the dishes with
the least amount of wet
ingredients first. For
example, make the bread
first; then you don’t need
to wash the bowl before
making the salad. In many
cases, wiping the bowl with
a paper towel between
recipes is sufficient.
Chopping certain foods
may scratch or cloud the
work bowl. These foods
include ice, whole spices,
coffee beans and oils like
wintergreen. If you like to
prepare your own spice
blends, you may want to
keep a second bowl just
for that purpose.
The housing base is made
of a tough plastic with high
impact resistance. Its
smooth surface will look
new for years. Keep a
sponge handy as you
work, and wipe spills from
the base.
Four rubber feet on the
underside keep the base
from moving on most work
surfaces when the machine
is processing heavy loads.
If the feet leave spots on
the counter, spray them
with a spot remover and
wipe with a damp sponge.
If any trace of the spot
remains, repeat the procedure and wipe the area
with a damp sponge and
nonabrasive cleaning powder. Dry completely.
To clean the inside of the
detachable stem, slide the
stem release button on the
side up as far as it will go
and hold it there as you run
water through the stem.
IMPORTANT:
Never store any blade or
disc on the motor shaft. No
blade or disc should be
placed on the shaft except
when the processor is
about to be used.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Like all powerful electrical
appliances, a Premier
Series 11 Cup Food
Processor should be handled with care. Follow
these guidelines to protect
yourself and your family
from misuse that could
cause injury.
Handle and store metal
blades and discs carefully.
Their cutting edges are
very sharp.
Always place discs on flat,
stable surface before connecting detachable stem.
Never put blades or discs
on the motor shaft until
the work bowl is locked
in place.
Always be sure that the
blade or disc is down on
motor shaft as far as it
will go.
Always insert chopping
blade and dough blade in
the work bowl before
putting ingredients in bowl.
When slicing or shredding
food, always use the
pusher. Never put your
fingers or spatula into
feed tube.
Always wait for the blade or
disc to stop spinning before
you remove the pusher
assembly or cover from
the work bowl.
Always unplug the unit
before removing food,
cleaning, or putting on or
taking off parts.
Always remove work bowl
from base of machine
before you remove
chopping blade or
dough blade.
Be careful to prevent the
chopping blade from falling
out of the work bowl when
emptying the bowl.
Remove blade before tilting
bowl, or hold it in place
with your finger, a spatula
or a spoon.
TECHNICAL DATA
The motor in your food
processor operates on
standard line operating
current. The appropriate
voltage and frequency for
your machine are shown
on the lower housing under
the base.
An automatic, temperaturecontrolled circuit breaker
in the motor ensures
complete protection against
motor burnout. If the
processor runs for an
exceptionally long time
when chopping, mixing or
kneading a thick or heavy
mixture in successive
batches, the motor may
overheat. If this happens,
the processor will stop.
Turn it off and wait for
the motor to cool before
proceeding. It will usually
cool within 10 minutes. In
extreme cases, it could
take an hour.
Safety switches prevent
the machine from operating
when the work bowl or the
cover is not locked into
position. The motor stops
within seconds when the
motor is turned off, and a
fast-stop circuit stops it
instantly when the pusher
assembly is removed.

CALIFORNIA
RESIDENTS ONLY:
California law provides that
for In-Warranty Service,
California residents have
the option of returning a
nonconforming product
(A) to the store where it was
purchased or
(B) to another retail store
which sells Cuisinart
products of the same type.
The retail store shall then, at
its discretion, either repair
the product, refer the consumer to an independent
repair facility, replace the
product, or refund the purchase price less the amount
directly attributable to the
consumer’s prior usage of
the product. If either of the
above two options does
not result in the appropriate
relief to the consumer, the
consumer may then take the
product to an independent
repair facility if service or
repair can be economically
accomplished. Cuisinart
and not the consumer will be
responsible for the reasonable cost of such service,
repair, replacement, or refund
for nonconforming products
under warranty.
California residents may
also, according to their preference, return nonconforming products directly to
Cuisinart for repair, or if necessary, replacement,
by calling our Consumer
Service Center toll-free
at 800-726-0190. Cuisinart
will be responsible for the

12
ounces cream cheese, regular or
reduced fat, not nonfat, cut in 1-inch
cubes
2
teaspoons basil
1/2
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2
sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
for 1 hour in the refrigerator
1-1/2 ounces Asiago cheese,
cut in 1/2-inch pieces
6
sun-dried tomato halves,
reconstituted in 1/2 cup boiling
water until softened, squeezed dry
1
shallot (1-1/2 ounce) peeled and
trimmed
1/2
pound Italian turkey sausage,
roasted and cooled, cut in
3/4-inch slices *
egg wash: 1 egg + 2 tablespoons water,
beaten together
Insert the metal blade. Place the walnuts in the work bowl. Pulse to chop, 5 times; remove
and reserve. With the machine running, drop the cheese cubes down the small feed tube.
Process for 30 seconds until chopped; remove and reserve. Put the sun-dried tomatoes in the
work bowl and pulse 5 times to chop; remove and reserve. With the machine running, drop
the shallots down the small feed tube; process for 5 seconds to chop. Scrape the work bowl.
Add the cream cheese, basil and ground pepper to the bowl. Use the pulse to blend, about
5 to 10 times. Scrape the work bowl. Add the reserved chopped walnuts, Asiago cheese and
sun-dried tomatoes. Use the pulse to blend, about 5 times. Remove and reserve.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out each sheet of puff pastry to 10 x 12 inches. Arrange the
pastry on the work surface so that the long side is in front of you. Brush the top inch of the
pastry with the egg wash, making a 1-inch edge. Using an offset or palette spatula, spread
one third of the cream cheese mixture evenly on each of the puff pastry sheets. Roll the pastry jelly-roll style, evenly so that you roll into the egg-washed edge. Wrap in plastic wrap and
refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 8. Cover and refrigerate the egg wash.
Preheat oven to 400˚F. Slice the puff pastry into 28 slices, each 1/2 inch thick. (The sliced pinwheels may be frozen at this time. Freeze the slices on a plastic wrap lined baking sheet in a
single layer. When frozen solid, transfer to a freezer bag. Double wrap the bag to keep out
freezer odors. May be frozen up to 3 weeks). Arrange the puff pastry slices on a baking sheet
about 1 inch apart. Lightly brush with the egg wash. Bake for 23 to 28 minutes, until puffed
and golden. Serve hot/warm. If desired, they may be baked ahead. Bake until light golden;
cool, then refrigerate until ready to serve. Reheat in a 300˚F oven for about 5 minutes.
*To roast the turkey sausage, prick the sausage several times with a fork, rub lightly with about a 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil,
then roast on a foil lined pan at 350˚F for 25 to 30 minutes, turning after 15 minutes.

With the machine running, drop the garlic and shallot through the small feed tube; process 5
seconds to chop. Scrape the work bowl. Add the spinach, about 2 ounces at a time; pulse 10
to 12 times to chop after each addition. Add the Herbes de Provence, feta and cream cheese;
process for 20 seconds to incorporate. Add the reserved breadcrumb mixture; pulse about 10
to 12 times to incorporate. The stuffing may be made up to 2 days ahead.
Rinse but do not soak the mushrooms; dry thoroughly. Remove the stems. (The stems may
be chopped finely using the metal blade and pulse, then sautéed in a tablespoon of unsalted
butter. This mixture may be frozen, then used in soups, stews, savory dressings or pilafs.)
Preheat oven to 425˚F. Stuff each mushroom with a scant tablespoon of the spinach mixture.
Arrange in a shallow baking dish that has been lightly coated with olive oil – do not crowd.
The mushrooms may be stuffed up to 8 hours ahead. If making ahead, cover and refrigerate.

Soups
Butternut Squash Bisque with Roasted Cremini
Mushrooms
Most cream soups are laden with heavy cream and fat.
This soup uses half & half and rice to make it rich and creamy.
Makes eight 7-ounce servings
Preparation: 40 to 45 minutes
12
ounces Cremini mushrooms,
stems removed and reserved
1-1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2
teaspoons curry powder
2
tablespoons white rice
3
cups low salt, nonfat chicken or
vegetable stock
1
medium onion (about 6 ounces),
cut in 1-inch pieces
1
clove garlic, peeled
2
pounds butternut squash, peeled,
seeded and cut to fit large feed tube
1
tablespoon honey
1/2
teaspoon kosher salt
1
sweet potato (about 10 ounces)
1/4
teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1
tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2
cup half-and-half
1-1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed

Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Insert the slicing disc. Arrange the
mushrooms vertically in the large feed tube, packing them snugly in 2 layers. Use medium pressure to slice. Toss the sliced mushrooms with the olive oil; arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until well browned and no longer
sitting in liquid. The mushrooms may be roasted ahead.
Insert the metal blade. With the machine running, drop the garlic through the feed tube and
process to chop finely, 5 seconds. Scrape the work bowl. Add the onion and reserved mushroom
stems to the bowl. Pulse to chop coarsely, 10 to 15 times. Remove and reserve.
Insert the shredding disc. Use medium pressure to shred the squash; remove and reserve. Peel
the sweet potato; cut in half crosswise. Use medium pressure to shred the sweet potato; remove
and reserve.
Melt the butter in a 6-quart stock pot over medium heat. Add the onion, mushroom and garlic mixture; cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the curry powder and rice; cook until the curry becomes aromatic and the rice is opaque, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shredded squash, sweet potato and
chicken stock. Cover loosely and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Strain the solids, reserving the cooking liquid. Transfer the cooking liquid to a saucepan over
very low heat and reserve. Insert the metal blade. Add the solids to the food processor, pulse 10
times, then process to purée, 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape the work bowl every 60 seconds. Return
the puréed solids to the cooking liquid and stir to incorporate. Add the lemon juice, honey, salt
and pepper. Stir in the roasted mushrooms and any accumulated juices. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. (The bisque may be done up to a day ahead to this point. If doing ahead,
allow the soup to cool, then cover and refrigerate. Just before service, reheat the soup.) Stir in
the half-and-half, heat for 1 minute, then serve.

The Best Bread Ever:
Great Home Made Bread Using Your Food Processor, Broadway Books, ©1997
Makes two 10-inch round loaves (boules)
Preparation: 30 minutes, plus 2-1/2 - 3 hours rising time,
40 minutes baking time and 1 hour or longer for cooling
1
pound unbleached bread flour
(3-1/3 to 4 cups)
1-1/4 cups water (10 ounces)
2
teaspoons fine sea salt
Flour for dusting
1
teaspoon instant yeast
Cornmeal for the peel or baking sheet
Insert the dough blade. Combine the flour, salt, and yeast in the work bowl. Test the temperature of the flour mixture using an instant read thermometer. Adjust the water temperature so
that the individual temperatures of the flour and water when combined equal 145˚F (i.e. if
the flour is 70˚F, then the water must be 75˚F.) This is the base temperature. With the
machine running on dough speed, add the water through the small feed tube and process
for 45 seconds. Transfer the dough to a large ungreased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and
let rise for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours at room temperature.
Move the uppermost rack of the oven so that it is about 8 inches from the top of the oven and
place a baking stone on the rack. Place a small cast-iron skillet to preheat on the floor or
lower rack of the oven. Preheat the oven to 475˚F.
When risen, scrape the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide into two equal
pieces and shape into rough balls. Let rest, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes. Roll into two balls,
9 inches in diameter. Place on a cornmeal dusted baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and
let rise for 30 to 45 minutes, until the dough increases in size by 50 percent. The dough will
feel soft, but spring back when poked with your finger.
Gently transfer the loaves onto a baker’s peel or the back of a baking sheet that has been
dusted with cornmeal, taking care not to deflate the loaves. Sprinkle top of each loaf with
flour. Using a serrated knife, score each loaf with four slashes to make a tic-tac-toe pattern
on the top of each loaf.
Carefully slide the loaves onto the baking stone, then carefully pour about 1 cup of warm
water into the cast-iron pan. Reduce the heat to 450˚F. Bake the loaves for 30 to 40 minutes,
until the crust is a deep mahogany color and the loaves sound hollow when tapped on the
bottom. The internal temperature of the bread will be 205˚- 210˚F when tested with an instant
read thermometer. Remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool completely before
slicing or storing.

Basic Artisan Bread
(variation)
To make baguettes
Makes three, about 14 inches long.
When risen, scrape the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough into three
equal pieces; shape into rough balls. Let rest, covered with plastic wrap, 15 to 20 minutes.
Sprinkle a sheet of canvas or a heavy linen cloth lightly with flour.
Flatten into 4 x 5-inch rectangles. From the far side, fold a little over 2/3 of the way toward
you; use the heel of your hand and press the folded edge to seal. Turn the dough 180˚; fold
over the other long edge 2/3 of the way, then seal with the palm of your hand. Fold the log in
half lengthwise, using your thumbs to create tension on the surface of the log. Use fingertips
to seal the dough into a taut cylinder. Place both hands on the center of the log; with fingers
spread, use light, uniform pressure to roll the dough back and forth to create a long snake,
about 14 inches. Transfer the baguettes, seam side up, to the floured cloth. Fold the cloth up
to form channels in which each loaf will rise. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 30 to 45
minutes, until the dough increases in size by 50 percent.
Gently transfer the loaves seam side down onto a baker’s peel or the back of a baking sheet
dusted with cornmeal. Sprinkle the tops with flour. Use a serrated knife to score several diagonal slices on each loaf. Bake as for the round loaves, 20 to 25 minutes, until the crust is a
deep mahogany color and the loaves sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. The internal
temperature of the bread will be 205˚ - 210˚F when tested with an instant read thermometer.
Remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool completely before slicing or storing.

Olive and Rosemary Country Loaf
Adapted from: Charles van Over,
The Best Bread Ever: Great Home Made Bread Using Your Food Processor,
Broadway Books, ©1997
Salty olives such as kalamata should be rinsed to remove some of their brine; oil cured olives
will produce a more mellow flavor. Olive lovers may add an additional quarter cup of olives.
Makes one loaf
Preparation: 30 minutes, plus 3 to 3-1/2 hours rising time,
30 minutes baking time, and 1 hour or longer for cooling
10
ounces unbleached bread flour
(2-1/4 to 2-3/4 cups)
5
ounces whole wheat flour (1 cup)
1
2
1
1
1-1/4 cups water (10 ounces)
1/2
cup pitted and coarsely chopped
imported black olives
ounce rye flour (1/4 cup)
1
tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
teaspoons fine sea salt
teaspoon instant yeast
Whole rosemary sprigs for garnish, cut into 1inch lengths
teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
Cornmeal for the peel or baking sheet
Flour for dusting
Insert the dough blade. Combine the flour, salt, yeast and olive oil in the work bowl. Test the temperature of the flour mixture using an instant read thermometer. Adjust the water temperature so
that the individual temperatures of the flour and water when combined equal 145˚F (i.e. if the flour
is 70˚F, then the water must be 75˚F). This is the base temperature. With the machine running on
dough speed, add the water through the small feed tube and process for 45 seconds. Transfer the
dough to a large ungreased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours at
room temperature.
Move the uppermost rack of the oven so that it is about 8 inches from the top of the oven and place
a baking stone on the rack. Place a small cast-iron skillet to preheat on the floor or lower rack of
the oven. Preheat the oven to 475˚F.
Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Flatten into a 12-inch square using the palms
of your hands. Sprinkle with the chopped olives and chopped rosemary. Fold the dough over onto
itself and knead for 3 to 4 minutes to thoroughly incorporate the olives and rosemary. If the dough
is difficult to knead, cover with a towel and let rest for 10 minutes, then continue kneading.
Form into a round loaf. Sprinkle a cloth-lined basket or banneton with flour. Place the dough in the
basket, with the seam showing on top of the loaf on top. Dust with flour and loosely cover with
plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise at least 1 hour at room temperature. It will be visibly risen and
spring back when gently pressed with a finger.
Just before baking, gently invert the bread rising basket onto a baker’s peel or the back of a baking
sheet that has been dusted with cornmeal. Sprinkle the top of the loaf with additional flour. Using a
serrated knife, score the dough in a star pattern – starting from the center, make a short 3-inch
slash. Rotate the bread and continue slashing until a star pattern is formed on the top of the dough.
Insert a few sprigs of rosemary into the surface of the dough.
Slide the loaf onto the baking stone, and then carefully pour 1 cup of warm water into the cast-iron
pan in the oven. Reduce the heat to 450˚F. Bake the bread for 30 minutes, and then reduce the
temperature to 425˚F and bake for an additional 15 minutes. The crust will be well browned and the
loaves will sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. The internal temperature of the bread will be
205˚ to 210˚F when tested with an instant read thermometer. Remove the bread from the oven and
place on a rack to cool completely before slicing or storing.

Simple Wheat Starter
Adapted from: Charles van Over, The Best Bread Ever:
Great Home Made Bread Using Your Food Processor, Broadway Books, ©1997
Makes about 5 cups
Preparation: 20 minutes, plus 3 to 4 days for fermentation
A starter is a type of natural yeast that makes bread rise and gives it a full, rich flavor. For best results, make this starter in a large, clear glass or plastic container (2quart) with graduated markings. Mark the level of your beginning starter with a piece
of tape and watch the gas bubbles develop as the yeast activates. Once the starter
has developed, store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. The starter
must be fed once a week to keep it alive. Always feed a starter 2 to 4 hours prior to
using it. To feed the starter, remove it from the refrigerator; stir in 1 cup of flour and
1/2 cup of water. The consistency should be like light pancake batter. After feeding,
leave the starter out at room temperature before using or refrigerating it. SAF yeast
is highly recommended for this and the other Artisan Bread recipes. The starter
process takes 42 to 56 hours before starter is ready to use.
12
2
ounces unbleached flour
ounces whole wheat flour
2
1/4
cups water (16 ounces)
teaspoon instant yeast
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup of each flour with 1 cup of the water and the yeast.
Stir well to blend; the mixture will be sticky and have the texture of wallpaper paste. Transfer
to a 2-quart container and cover with plastic wrap. Mark the level of the starter and the time
mixed on the side of the container with masking tape. Let sit at room temperature (70-72°F)
for 18 to 24 hours.
Uncover the starter; it will have almost doubled in bulk. Add 3/4 cup of the all-purpose flour
and 1/2 cup of the water. Mark again with the level and time. Let sit at room temperature for
18 to 24 hours.
Uncover the starter; it will be doubled in bulk and full of bubbles. Discard half or give to a
friend with directions. Add the remaining flours and water. Mix well. The mixture will have the
consistency of thick pancake batter. If it is too thick, add more water – too thin, add more
flour. Cover with plastic wrap. Mark the level and time, and let sit at room temperature for
another 6 to 8 hours. The basic starter is now ready to use.

Multi-Grain Sandwich Loaf
Adapted from: Charles van Over, The Best Bread Ever:
Great Home Made Bread Using Your Food Processor, Broadway Books, ©1997
A mountainous loaf full of the nutty taste of whole grains,
the Multi Grain Sandwich loaf may also be shaped into a plump round loaf.
Makes one 24-ounce loaf
Preparation: 30 to 35 minutes, plus 2 hours to activate the Simple Wheat Starter,
3 to 3-1/2 hours rising time, 40 minutes baking time, and 1 hour or longer for cooling
1/2
cup Active Simple Wheat Starter
(measure after feeding and resting)
2
8
ounces unbleached bread flour
(1-3/4 to 2-1/4 cups)
1/2
teaspoon instant yeast
2
ounces whole wheat flour (1/2 cup)
1
cup water
1
ounce rye flour (1/4 cup)
1
ounce graham flour (1/4 cup)
ounces 7-grain cereal (1/2 cup)
1-1/2 teaspoons fine sea salt
Vegetable oil for the pan
Two to four hours before mixing this dough, feed your Simple Wheat Starter. Allow the starter to sit
at room temperature until it is frothy, bubbly and visibly active.
Insert the dough blade. Add the flours, 7-grain cereal, salt, yeast and starter to the work bowl. Test
the temperature of this mixture with an instant read thermometer. Adjust the water temperature so
that the individual temperatures of the flour mixture and water when combined equal 145°F (i.e., if
the flour mixture is 70°F, then the water temperature must be 75°F). This is the base temperature.
With the machine running, pour all but 3 tablespoons of water through the small feed tube; process
for 15 seconds. The dough should come together and form a visible ball. Add the reserved water if
the dough seems dry and crumbly. If the dough is wet and sticking to the shaft and sides of the
bowl, sprinkle in a few spoonfuls of flour. Process for 30 seconds, so that the dough mixes a total
of 45 seconds. This dough will be soft, moist and somewhat sticky.
Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Lightly flour the dough, shape into a rough
ball and place in a large ungreased bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to
ferment for about 2 to 3 hours at room temperature. The dough will double in volume.
Brush an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan with vegetable oil. Turn the dough onto a generously floured work surface. Use your fingertips to lightly pat the dough into a rectangle about 10 inches long and 2 inches
thick. Roll the dough into a log. Tuck in the ends and place the dough in the pan, seam-side down.
Lightly dust the dough with flour and loosely cover with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel. Let the
dough rise for about 1 to 1-1/2 hours at room temperature. Arrange the oven rack on the second
shelf from the bottom of the oven; place a baking stone on the rack. Preheat the oven to 475° F.
Dust the proofed loaf with flour. Make a 1/4-inch slash down the center of the loaf with a serrated
knife. Slide the loaf pan into the oven onto the baking stone. Turn the heat down to 425° F. Bake
the bread for 20 minutes, then rotate the pan in the oven for even baking and bake another 15 to
20 minutes, until the crust is deep brown. Take the loaf out of the pan and place directly on the
baking stone; bake for another 5 to 10 minutes. The loaf is ready when it sounds hollow when
tapped on the bottom and the internal temperature is 205° to 210° F when tested with an instant read
thermometer. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool before slicing or storing.
Store under a towel or in a paper bag at room temperature. The Multi-Grain Sandwich Loaf will
stay fresh for three days.

Farm House Bread
“Long Cool Rise” Adapted from: Charles van Over,
The Best Bread Ever: Great Home Made Bread Using Your Food Processor,
Broadway Books, ©1997
The two long rising periods – one at room temperature and a second in the refrigerator
– give this bread a rich and subtle sour flavor in the tradition of the great breads made
in European farmhouse kitchens in the past. This dough is very forgiving; you can mix
it in the morning and bake at night or mix late in the day to bake early the next morning.
Makes two long loaves
Preparation: 30 minutes, plus 2 hours to activate the Simple Wheat Starter,
10 to 18 hours rising time, 25 minutes baking time, and 1 hour or longer for cooling
1/2
cup Active Simple Wheat Starter
(measure after feeding and resting)
scant 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
12
ounces unbleached bread flour
(3-1/4 to 4 cups)
Cornmeal for the peel or baking sheet
1
ounce stone-ground whole wheat flour
1
cup water (8 ounces)
Flour for dusting
1-1/2 teaspoons fine sea salt
Two to four hours before mixing this dough, feed your Simple Wheat Starter. Allow the starter to sit at
room temperature until it is frothy, bubbly and visibly active.
Insert the dough blade. Combine the flours, salt, yeast, and starter in the work bowl. Test the
temperature of the flour mixture using an instant read thermometer. Adjust the water temperature so
that the individual temperatures of the flour mixture and water when combined equal 145°F (i.e. if the
flour is 75°F, then the water must be 70°F). This is the base temperature. With the machine running,
add the water through the small feed tube and process for 45 seconds. Transfer the dough to a large
ungreased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for about 3 to 5 hours at room temperature.
Place the bowl of risen bread dough in the refrigerator for 6 to 12 hours to extend the fermentation
and develop the flavor in the dough.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Scrape it onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide into two
equal pieces and shape into rough balls. Let rest, covered for about an hour, until the dough comes
up to room temperature. Roll each piece of dough into a thin log shape about 12 inches long. Arrange
a floured canvas or towel to form two channels. Tuck the loaves into the channels with the seam up;
cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 30 to 45 minutes, until the dough increases in size by 50 percent. The dough will feel soft, but will spring back when poked with your finger.
Move the uppermost rack of the oven so that it is about 8 inches from the top of the oven and place a
baking stone on the rack. Place a small cast-iron skillet to preheat on the floor or lower rack of the
oven. Preheat the oven to 475°F.
Gently transfer the loaves with the seam down onto a baker’s peel or the back of a baking sheet that
has been dusted with cornmeal. Sprinkle the top of each loaf with flour. Use a serrated knife to cut 4
long parallel slashes along the length of each loaf at a 45° angle. Slide the loaves directly onto the
preheated baking stone. Carefully pour 1 cup of warm water into the cast-iron pan on the oven floor.
Reduce the heat to 450°F. Bake the loaves for 20 to 25 minutes, until the crust is golden and the
loaves sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove the loaves from the oven and place on a
rack to cool completely before slicing or storing.

Pleasing to the palate and to the eye, this dish is mostly do-ahead,
making it perfect for entertaining.
Preparation: 30 minutes, plus 20 minutes baking and 10 minutes for the sauce
1-1/4 pounds shrimp (16-20 count),
peeled and deveined
2
tablespoons unsalted butter
bunches tender, fresh chives
1-1/2 tablespoons low-sodium tamari or
soy sauce
1/3
cup Italian parsley leaves
3/4
6
green onions, trimmed to 5 inches,
then cut in 1-inch lengths
1-1/2 pounds sole (six 4-ounce fillets), skinless
3/4
cup dry vermouth or white wine
1
2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled,
cut in 1/2-inch pieces
3/4
cup heavy cream
6
ounces French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
2
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cut along the vein line to within 1/2 inch of the tail to butterfly 6 of the shrimp; reserve and
refrigerate. Lay the remaining shrimp in a single layer on a sheet of plastic wrap on a baking sheet
and freeze for 20 minutes.
Reserve 20 of the longest, most flexible chives. Cut 16 of the remaining chives into 1-inch lengths;
refrigerate any remaining chives for another use. Insert the metal blade. Pulse to chop the 16
chives. Remove and reserve. Pulse to chop the parsley, 10 times; leave in work bowl. With the
machine running, drop the ginger down the small feed tube and process 10 seconds to chop.
Add the green onions; pulse to chop, 10 times. Remove and reserve the parsley, ginger and green
onion mixture. Process the bread until it becomes medium coarse crumbs, 1 minute. Remove and
reserve. Pulse to chop the partially frozen shrimp, 20 to 30 times. There should be no piece of
shrimp larger than 1/2 an inch. Remove and refrigerate.
In a 3-1/2 quart sauté pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the parsley, ginger and green
onion mixture; cook until tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the breadcrumbs, tamari and pepper;
toss to combine and cook for 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a bowl and let cool completely. Stir in
the reserved chopped shrimp and just enough water to help the mixture hold together. Lightly butter
a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Cut a sheet of waxed paper or parchment 15 inches long; lightly
butter the paper.
Lay the sole fillets on the work surface, skin side up. Divide the stuffing mixture into 6 equal portions. Loosely pack each portion and place one portion in the center of each fillet. Fold the two long
ends of the fillet up over the filling and overlap; turn over. Tie the cut ends of 2 chives together,
using a double knot. Slip the knotted portion under the stuffed and rolled sole; bring the 2 ends
together over the top and tie. Place in prepared baking dish. Repeat with the remaining sole and
stuffing. The dish may be done ahead to this point, 8 hours ahead, covered with plastic wrap and
refrigerated. If refrigerated, let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before continuing. Preheat
the oven to 400° F.
Add the wine to the baking dish; cover with the buttered paper, butter side down, and bake for
20 minutes. After 16 minutes, lay one of the reserved butterflied shrimp, cut side down, on each
sole bundle. Re-cover and continue to bake for an additional 5 minutes. Transfer the sole to a
warmed serving platter and cover loosely. Strain the cooking liquid into a 2 quart Windsor pan, and
reduce by half over high heat. Add the heavy cream, and reduce by half again. To serve, nap the
sauce over and around the sole, then sprinkle with the reserved chopped chives.

Prepare the Pizza Dough and let rise. Position the top rack of the oven about 8 inches from
the top. If using a baking stone, place it on the rack. Preheat the oven to 500° F.
Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in medium saucepan. Cut a shallow “x” in the bottom of each
tomato. Blanch the tomatoes in the boiling water for 30 seconds, then immediately plunge
them into a bowl of iced water. When cool, slip the skins off. Slice the stem end off each
tomato; set aside.
Insert the metal blade. With the machine running, drop the Parmesan cheese cubes down the
small feed tube; process 15 seconds and leave in bowl. Insert the shredding disc and shred
the mozzarella and fontina. Remove the cheese to a bowl; toss to combine, and reserve.
Insert the slicing disc. Place the tomatoes in the small feed tube one at a time, and slice,
using light pressure. Place the sliced tomatoes on a triple thick layer of paper towels to drain.
When the dough has risen, punch down and divide into 2 or 4 equal balls. Let rest 10 minutes.
Roll the dough out to size. Place on a baker’s peel that has been sprinkled with cornmeal.
Brush the edges with the olive oil. Using an offset spatula, spread the pizza with the pesto
sauce to 3/4 inch of the edges, using 3 tablespoons on each 14-inch pizza or 1-1/2 tablespoons on each 9-inch pizza. Divide the shredded cheeses evenly and sprinkle on the pizzas.
Top with the drained sliced tomatoes.
Carefully slide the pizza onto the stone (position the peel over the back edge of the stone,
and use a rocking motion to shake and slide the pizza off the peel onto the stone), or place
the pan in the hot oven. Bake the pizza for 5 minutes, then rotate it front to back for even
baking. Bake for another 3 to 6 minutes until the pizza is bubbly, and the edges of the dough
are golden brown, puffed and crispy. Remove from the oven and let rest on a rack for 2 to 3
minutes before slicing.

ounces chevre or goat cheese
ounces Ricotta Salata, crumbled
Cornmeal for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a shallow baking sheet with foil. Insert the slicing disc. Use
medium pressure to slice the red and yellow peppers. Remove and toss with the olive oil.
Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender and
beginning to brown. Transfer to a small bowl; toss with the balsamic vinegar and let cool.
Prepare the Pizza Dough and let rise. Position the rack in the middle of the oven. If using a
baking stone, place it on the rack. Raise the oven temperature to 450° F. Sprinkle a nonstick
baking sheet (not “air-bake” type) or baker’s peel with cornmeal.
Insert the metal blade. Pulse to chop the parsley and basil, 10 times. Remove and reserve.
With the machine running, drop the Parmesan cubes down the small feed tube and process
to chop, 10 seconds. Insert the shredding disc and shred the mozzarella. Leave in the work
bowl. Insert the metal blade. Sprinkle the crumbled chevre, Ricotta Salata and reserved herbs
over the mozzarella. Pulse to combine, 12 to 15 times. Remove and refrigerate until ready to
assemble the calzones.
Divide the dough into 4 or 8 equal balls depending on size of calzones desired. Cover loosely
with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes. Lightly flour the work surface. Roll into rounds,
9 - 10 inches each in diameter for 4 balls, and 5 - 6 inches in diameter for 8 balls. Spread the
cheese mixture over half the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Use 1/2 cup for the larger calzones and 1/4 cup for the smaller calzones. Drain the peppers. Sprinkle the peppers over the
cheese mixture – 1/4 cup for the larger calzones, 2 tablespoons for the smaller calzones.
Brush the border of the dough lightly with water. Fold the dough over the filling and press firmly to seal the edges. Then make overlapping folds around the edges of the calzone. Use a
serrated knife to make three 1-inch slashes on the top of each calzone for the steam to
escape. Place on a cornmeal-dusted baker’s peel and slide onto the preheated baking stone,
or onto a cornmeal-dusted baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the dough is baked
through and is a deep golden brown. Transfer to a rack to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Calzones may be served hot or at room temperature. Leftover calzones should be wrapped in
foil or plastic wrap and refrigerated. Re-warm in a 375° F oven before serving. Microwaving is
not recommended.

Sauces & Dressings
Simple Tomato Sauce
A simple marinara sauce for pasta,
or when reduced, a tasty topping for homemade pizzas.
Makes 3 cups tomato sauce for pasta / 1-3/4 cups tomato sauce for pizza
Preparation: 5-10 minutes plus 1 hour cooking and cooling time
(add an additional 40-50 minutes to make the reduced pizza sauce)
1
small onion (4 ounces),
cut in 1-inch pieces
3
tablespoons dry white wine or
vermouth
4
cloves garlic, peeled
1/2
teaspoon kosher salt
3/4
teaspoon dried oregano
1/4
1
teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
teaspoon freshly ground black
pepper
1
can (28 ounce) plum tomatoes,
with juices
2
sprigs fresh basil (10-12 large
leaves)
1/4 -3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
(optional, to taste, for a spicier
sauce)
Insert the metal blade. Pulse to chop the onion and garlic with the oregano, about 10 times.
Heat the oil over medium heat in a 2-3/4-quart saucepan; add the onion, garlic, and oregano.
Cook, stirring for 2 to 3 minutes, until the onions begin to soften and the oregano becomes
fragrant. Add the canned tomatoes with their juices, basil sprigs, wine and salt. Bring to a boil,
then reduce the heat to low, cover loosely and simmer for 45 to 50 minutes. Turn off the heat

Basic Mayonnaise
The American Egg Board recommends using the freshest eggs
and then heating them to kill salmonella bacteria.
This recipe uses a procedure suggested by cookbook author and food sleuth
Shirley Corriher for heating the eggs to sanitize them.
The results are definitely worth the effort.
Proper refrigeration and storage are necessary.
Makes 1-3/4 cups
Preparation: 15 - 20 minutes
1
large egg
1/2
1
large egg yolk
2-1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
1
tablespoon freshly squeezed
lemon juice
1
tablespoon wine vinegar
2
1
1-1/2 tablespoons water
1/2
teaspoon flour
teaspoon kosher salt
pinch of cayenne
tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1-1/3 cups vegetable oil (canola, soya, etc.)
teaspoon sugar
Insert the metal blade. Process the egg, egg yolk, lemon juice, wine vinegar, water, sugar and
flour until smooth, about 20 seconds. Transfer the egg mixture to a small (7 or 8-inch) nonstick skillet, and heat over very low heat while gently stirring and scraping the bottom of the
pan with a spatula. When the mixture begins to thicken and resemble a custard sauce,
remove from the heat while still stirring and set in a pan of ice and water to stop the cooking.
Stir until the egg mixture has cooled; let rest for 5 minutes. Wash the work bowl, metal blade
and lid in hot soapy water and dry thoroughly.
Insert the metal blade. Process the cooled egg mixture with the dry mustard, kosher salt, and
cayenne until blended,1 minute. Scrape the work bowl. With the machine running, add the
olive oil through the hole in the small feed tube very slowly. Scrape the work bowl. With the
machine running, add the vegetable oil through the hole in the small pusher, one quarter cup
at a time, and allow the oil to drip through the hole slowly into the emulsion. The mayonnaise
will thicken as the oil is added. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary. Remove to a container, cover and keep refrigerated. Keeps 3 to 4 days refrigerated.

Basic Cheesecake
Creamy, smooth and simple to prepare.
“Chocoholics” will love the Double Chocolate variation.
Makes 12 servings
Preparation: 10 - 15 minutes, plus 1-1/2 hours baking and cooling time
4
lowfat honey graham cracker sheets,
broken into 1-inch pieces
1-1/2 tablespoons sugar
1
cup sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons vanilla
4
large eggs, at room temperature
1-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2
pounds lowfat cream cheese,
at room temperature
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Wrap the bottom and sides of an 8 x 3-inch springform or cheesecake pan in a sheet of oversized
heavy-duty aluminum foil. There should be no seams in the foil, and it should come up to the top of
the pan. Cut off any excess. Insert the metal blade. Process the graham crackers until they are fine
crumbs; add the sugar and the butter through the small feed tube and process until the butter can no
longer be seen. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Put in the freezer until ready to fill.
Wipe out the work bowl with a paper towel. Insert the Dough Blade. Process the cream cheese until
smooth on Dough Speed, about 45 seconds. Scrape the work bowl. Add the sugar and vanilla;
process until smooth, about 30 seconds. Scrape the work bowl. With the machine running, add the
eggs, one at a time, processing for 10 seconds after each addition. Scrape the bottom and sides of
the work bowl after adding the second egg, and then after adding the last egg. Do not overprocess.
Carefully pour the cream cheese mixture into the prepared pan. Place in a roasting pan, and set on
the rack of the oven. Carefully add hot water to the roasting pan until it reaches halfway up the sides
of the springform pan. This is called a bain marie or water bath. Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for 70 minutes. The cheesecake will still look jiggly in the center. Do not worry.
Remove the cheesecake from the bain marie; remove the foil and place cake on a rack. Cool completely on rack, then cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
The cheesecake is best made a day ahead. If desired, garnish with fresh fruit.
Double Chocolate Variation:
Before making the cheesecake, chop 7 ounces of good quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
(that has been broken up) and, using the metal blade and the pulse, pulse 20 to 30 times until roughly
chopped and the chunks are not bigger than 1/2 inch. Melt 4 ounces of the chopped chocolate in a
double boiler set over barely simmering water; reserve the rest. Prepare the cheesecake batter, and
pour 2-2/3 cups into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate. Add the melted chocolate to the batter in the work
bowl and process just to incorporate. Pour into the prepared pan and freeze until just firm, 2 to 3
hours. Stir the remaining chocolate chunks into the reserved batter. Pour over the frozen chocolate
layer. Bake as instructed, but increase the baking time to 85 minutes.

Carrot Cake
Wonderful as a 2-layer cake, but try it as a single layer cake,
freezing the second layer for another time.
Makes 12 servings
Preparation: 20 - 25 minutes, plus 2 hours baking and cooling and
45 to 50 minutes for preparing the frosting and assembling and chilling the cake
Vegetable oil cooking spray
3
1-1/4 pounds carrots, peeled
2-1/2 tablespoons vanilla
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups pecans or walnuts, lightly toasted
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4
3/8
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups well-drained pineapple chunks
(juice packed)
large eggs
cup golden raisins
1-1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3
1
teaspoon ginger
1-1/4 pounds lowfat cream cheese
1/2
teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
6
ounces white chocolate, such as Lindt®
or Callebaut® – not imitation white coating
16
toasted pecan or walnut halves
1-1/4 cups brown sugar
1/3
cup vegetable oil
cup coconut
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spray two 9 x 2-inch round cake pans (8 cups each) with vegetable oil cooking spray; line the bottoms with rounds of waxed paper or parchment paper and
spray again. Set aside.
Insert the slicing disc; slice half the carrots. Steam until tender, about 6 to 8 minutes.
Set aside to cool. Insert the shredding disc. Shred the remaining carrots; remove and reserve.
Insert the metal blade. Pulse the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger
and nutmeg to quick sift. Remove and reserve. Process the steamed carrots until puréed,
10 to 15 seconds. Add the brown sugar and oil; process until smooth, 10 seconds. Add the
eggs one at a time, processing 10 seconds after each addition. Add the vanilla. Add the flour
mixture; pulse to incorporate, about 10 times. Add the pecans; pulse to incorporate, 5 times.
Add the raisins, pineapple, and coconut; pulse to incorporate, 10 times.
Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 55 to
60 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean when inserted in the center. Cool in the pans
for 10 minutes, then invert onto a wire cooling rack and remove the waxed or parchment
paper. Cool completely before frosting. This cake is actually better when made a day ahead.
The layers may also be well wrapped and frozen. Frost with the White Chocolate Cream
Cheese Frosting and garnish with toasted nuts.
White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting:
Insert the metal blade. Process the cream cheese until smooth. In a double boiler over hot
water, carefully melt the white chocolate – do not stir, or the chocolate will seize. With the
machine running, pour the melted chocolate down the feed tube and process until smooth.
This will make enough frosting to frost the layers and sides of the carrot cake. For ease, use
an offset spatula to frost the cake. Refrigerate before serving.

Preparation: 10 minutes, plus 30 minutes resting time
For a one-crust pie:
8
tablespoons unsalted butter, cut in
1/2-inch pieces, well chilled
2
in
tablespoons shortening (Crisco®), cut
1/2-inch pieces, well chilled
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon baking powder
For a two-crust pie:
3
cups all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon baking powder
2 to 4 tablespoons ice water
16
tablespoons unsalted butter, cut in
1/2-inch pieces, well chilled
2
tablespoons shortening (Crisco®), cut
in 1/2-inch pieces, well chilled
5 to 8 tablespoons ice water
Insert the metal blade. Process the flour, salt and baking powder to sift, 10 seconds. Add the
well chilled butter and shortening. Use short rapid pulses until the mixture resembles coarse
corn meal and no pieces of butter larger than a “pea” remain visible, 15 to 20 pulses. Sprinkle
half the maximum ice water on the flour and butter mixture, then pulse 5 or 6 times. The
dough will be crumbly, but should begin to hold together when a small amount is picked up
and pressed together. Sprinkle on more water, a teaspoon (two for the two-crust recipe) at a
time, with 2 to 3 quick pulses after each addition, adding just enough water for the dough to
hold together easily when pressed into a ball. (Do not allow the dough to form a ball in the
processor!) Add the liquid sparingly so that the dough is not sticky. Do not overprocess or the
pastry will be tough, not tender and flaky.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Press together into a ball, then flatten into a
disc about 6 inches in diameter (two discs for the two-crust recipe). Wrap in plastic wrap and
refrigerate for 1 hour before continuing to allow the glutens in the flour to rest. The dough will
keep refrigerated for up to 3 days, or may be frozen (double wrapped) for up to a month.
Thaw at room temperature for an hour before using.
To prebake the pastry (bake blind) for a single-crust filled pie or tart, roll out pastry 1/8 inch
thick to fit pan; crimp and seal edges. Prick bottom all over with a fork. Chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line pie pan with a sheet of aluminum foil or parchment paper and
fill with pie weights, dry rice or beans. Bake for 15 minutes.

Old World Apple Crumb Pie
A creamy apple pie with crunchy, crumb topping
Makes 1 10-inch pie, 12 servings.
Preparation: 15 – 20 minutes, plus 40 minutes to prepare the
pastry and 2 hours baking and cooling.
1
single crust pastry recipe
3
large eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup lowfat sour cream
1/2 cup walnuts, pecans or almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tablespoons vanilla
1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room
temperature (not melted)
1/4 teaspoon salt
3
large apples (about 8 ounces each),
peeled, cored and cut in 8ths
(1 Granny Smith + 2 Golden Delicious,
or 3 Winesaps or Pippins)
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry 1/8 inch thick, about 3 inches larger than the
diameter of a 10-inch deep dish pie plate. Lift carefully, using a dough scraper to help lift the
pastry. Loosely fold in half, then into quarters to form a wedge shape. Position the point of the
wedge in the center of the pie plate and carefully unfold the dough into the pan. Make sure
there are no air pockets between the dough and the pan. (If any tears in the crust occur,
mend them by brushing lightly with water and pinching together, or patching with a scrap of
rolled dough.) Trim evenly, leaving a 1-inch overhang. Lightly brush the edge of the pastry
with water and fold over. Seal and crimp or flute decoratively. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Roll the trimmings into a flat disk, wrap, refrigerate and reserve for another use or discard.
Insert the metal blade. Use the pulse to combine the brown sugar, nuts, oats, flour and butter.
Pulse until the nuts are roughly chopped. Transfer to a bowl; knead with your fingers until the
mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Refrigerate while continuing.
Insert the slicing disc. Arrange the apples in the large feed tube and slice. Transfer the apples
to the piecrust; spread evenly in the crust. Insert the metal blade. Process the eggs, sour
cream, sugar, flour, vanilla, and salt until smooth, about 10 seconds. Scrape the work bowl
and process 5 seconds longer. Pour this mixture over the apples. Top with the reserved crumb
mixture and bake in the bottom third of the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, until golden,
a little bubbly and slightly puffed. Check the pie after 30 minutes – if the crust begins to brown
too much, cover with foil strips or commercially available piecrust shield strips for the duration
of the baking time. Cool on a rack at least 1 hour before serving.

Deep-Dish Pear and Apple Pie
Pears and apples combine to make a delightful taste combination.
If you want, you may use all pears or all apples.
Makes a 10-inch deep-dish pie - 12 servings
Preparation: 15 - 20 minutes, plus 40 minutes for preparing the pastry
and 2-1/4 hours baking and cooling
Pastry for a 2 crust pie
3/4
cup dried cranberries
3
ripe but firm pears, about 8 ounces
each, peeled, cored and quartered
1
tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon
juice
3
Granny Smith Apples, about 8 ounces
each, peeled, cored and quartered
1/4
cup real maple syrup
(not pancake syrup)
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
juice of 1 lemon
4
tablespoons unbleached
all-purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 400˚F.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out half the pastry to fit a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate, leaving
a 1/2-inch overhang. Lift carefully, using a dough scraper to help lift the pastry. Loosely fold
the dough in half, then into quarters to form a wedge shape. Position the point of the wedge in
the center of the pie plate and carefully unfold the dough into the pan. Make sure there are no
air pockets between the dough and the pan. (If any tears in the crust occur, mend them by
brushing lightly with water and pinching together, or patching with a scrap of rolled dough.)
Trim evenly, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Insert the slicing disc. Arrange the pear quarters in the large feed tube and slice. Repeat until
all the pears are sliced. Transfer to a bowl and toss gently with the juice of 1/2 lemon.
Reserve. Arrange the apple quarters in the feed tube. Use medium pressure to slice. Transfer
to a bowl and toss with the juice of 1/2 lemon. Insert the metal blade. Process the remaining
lemon juice, maple syrup and vanilla to combine.
Layer half of the apples in the prepared piecrust. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the flour and
3 tablespoons of the dried cranberries. Top this with a layer of the pears sprinkled with
1 tablespoon of the flour and 3 tablespoons of the dried cranberries. Repeat both layers.
Drizzle the maple syrup mixture evenly over the top of the fruit.
Roll out the remaining dough about 1/8 inch thick and about 2 inches larger than the diameter
of the top of the pie plate. Brush the edges of the bottom crust with a little water. Carefully lay
the top crust on the pie. Press gently to seal. Trim to the edge of the pie plate; crimp or flute
decoratively. Make about 10 to 12 slits in the top crust decoratively with the tip of a very sharp
knife. If desired, roll out some of the leftover crust and cut with small decorative cookie cutters. For this pie, you could use pears, apples and leaves. Brush the bottoms of the shapes
with a little water and arrange decoratively on the top crust.
Bake the pie in the bottom third of the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, covering the
edges with foil if they begin to get too browned after about 35 to 40 minutes. Let the pie rest
on a cooling rack for at least an hour before serving.
