Kosher or sea salt, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Coconut Shrimp Directions:
Pre-heat one of the two ovens on your 60-Inch Pro Grand® Range to 375o F and line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper. Rinse and pat the shrimp dry, then season with salt and pepper.

If needed, you can turn the shrimp for more even coloring after baking for 10 minutes. Serve the appetizer on a bed of shredded cabbage or garnished with parsley/cilantro and the orange chili dipping sauce.

Brisket

Braised Brisket with Sweet Onions and Dried Fruit

A perfectly braised, juicy brisket is the easiest way to get everyone to sit at the table as fast as possible – we promise! This recipe also serves 6 to 8 people.

For the rub spices: 
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon ground chipotle
1 tablespoon kosher or sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

For the brisket:
4 pounds of brisket, first cut
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large sweet onion, sliced thin
1 can diced or crushed tomatoes
¼ cup dried apricots, minced
¼ cup golden raisins

¼ cup chopped dried apple

Salt and pepper, to taste

Pre-heat the oven on your 60-Inch Pro Grand® Range to 350o F. In a small bowl, combine the rub spices: brown sugar, granulated garlic, ground mustard, paprika, ground chipotle, sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Then heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven on medium-high heat. Sear each side of the brisket until a crust forms, about 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove the brisket from the Dutch oven pot, then add the onions, can of tomatoes, apricots, raisins and dried apple to the same pot. Bring the sauce to a low boil. Place the brisket back into the pot with the sauce and make sure the brisket is covered in the sauce. Place the cover back on the Dutch oven pot and transfer to the oven. Bake the brisket for about 3 hours or until tender. When finished cooking, remove the brisket from the sauce and cover with foil to let rest for about 5 minutes. When ready to serve, slice the brisket into thin slices and top with the sauce. Our mouth is watering…how about yours?

Pumpkin Pie

Caramel Toffee Pumpkin Pie

What good is a holiday party without dessert? Share this delicious caramel toffee pumpkin pie with your guests and you’re sure to be crowned holiday master! This recipe makes 8 servings.

1 deep dish 9″ pie shell:
1 ½ cups flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ teaspoon fine salt
½ cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
¼ – ⅓ cup ice water
Pumpkin Custard filling:
2 cups pumpkin puree
½ cup caramel butterscotch ice cream topping
½ cup brown sugar (packed)
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
½ cup milk
½ cup heavy cream
3 eggs
1 cup crushed toffee
Eggnog Whipped Cream:
½ cup heavy whipping cream
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup eggnog
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
Garnish:
Pumpkin Pie Spice
For the pie shell: Place the flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to combine. Add the cubed butter, pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs the size of a pea. Slowly drizzle in the ice water while continuing to pulse. As soon as the mixture begins to come together, stop adding water and pulse a couple more times. Remove the dough from the food processor and form into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour. Roll the dough out to about a 12″ diameter. Gently fit the dough into a deep dish 9″ pie plate. Trim any excess and crimp the edges. Freeze the pie shell completely before baking. Preheat the convection oven of your 60-Inch Pro Grand® Range to 400°F.
Grease a piece of tinfoil and press greased side down into the bottom and sides of the pie shell. Fill the foil lining with pie weights. Bake for 20 minutes, remove the foil and pie weights and gently press down any areas that have bubbled up. Bake for an additional 5 minutes. Cool completely before filling.

For the filling:

Preheat the convection oven of your 60-Inch Pro Grand® Range to 375°F. Beat the pumpkin, caramel butterscotch topping, brown sugar, spices, vanilla and salt together in a large bowl. Add milk, cream and eggs; beat until smooth. Sprinkle crushed toffee over the bottom of the pie shell. Pour pumpkin mixture carefully over the toffee. Some pieces may float to the top—gently push them back into the filling. Place pie plate on a cookie sheet in the center of the oven. Bake until set, about 1 – 1 ½ hours. Cool completely and chill before serving. Serve each slice of pie with a dollop of eggnog whipped cream, and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice. A hot cup of coffee or tea goes well with this dessert, or even a perfectly chilled bottle of dessert wine right out of your Freedom® Collection Wine Column!
