Carvers Corner
(Or Gary’s Gossip Column)

 

I hope your Christmas was merry and I hope your New Year is just fantastic.

We are still working on Comfort Birds and Dick Belcher sent us 50 cut-outs for our carvers to work on. Dick sent some nice cedar, some mahogany and some bass wood birds. Bob Alexander also cut out some nice ones too.

Thanks to all Officers and Board members for all the help this past year. I’m looking forward to spring already so we can start our brick work and windows.

Steve Fowler will do the February Newsletter as I’ll be gone to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a bit. Suzi and Mildred left on Christmas afternoon. It looks like the weather here is holding up well. I’ve even been out on the old golf cart.

Dues are $10.00 + $1.00 per each family member. Always due in December so now they are late.

—Your ol’ carvin’ buddy, Gary

A Note from the Chairman

 

Thank you all who have helped with the Comfort Birds and to those who helped with the December Auction. We hope to get some interior work done in the spring too. We will do some work on an extra upstairs shower and restroom.

I want to say thanks to the folks who come in on Tuesday nights and help with guests and new comers.

We’ll miss Randy & Pat Hurst for sure and now have Ben Cash and Brenda Kallner on the Board of Directors to replace them.

Congratulations go to our newest Life Member Jack Shelton.

—Gary

Carvers Corner

(Or Gary’s gossip Column)
Early show entry is on Tuesday Dec. 9 during open carve. Make sure you get some entries ready. Folks from town come in to see what we’ve been doing.

The Comfort Bird project is still in full swing and we are still in need of about 175 more.

If you have a favorite recipe for Our Recipe Corner just e-mail it to me and I’ll run it one month. Our recipe this month is longer that I’d normally put in but I didn’t have much else to put in.

Dues are $10.00 + $1.00 per each family member. Always due in December.

Your ol’ carvin’ buddy,                                                                                                                    Gary

OUR RECIPE CORNER

From the kitchen of                                                       Sandy Tipton

 

Blueberry Cheesecake Galette                       (lazy-man’s pie crust)
Total Time:
2 hrs. 45 mins
Prep:
2 hrs. 20 mins
Cook:
25 min @ 425 degrees F
Yield: 6 to 8 servings

For the dough:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Pinch of kosher salt
1 stick cold unsalted butter, diced
1 large egg
Cooking spray

For the filling:
2 cups blueberries
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons cornstarch
Pinch of kosher salt
1 8 -ounce package cream cheese
1 large egg, beaten, plus 1 egg yolk
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
Coarse sugar, for sprinkling

Directions:
Make the dough: Pulse the flour, granulated sugar, vinegar and salt in a food processor until combined. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture looks like coarse meal with pea-size pieces of butter. Whisk the egg with 2 tablespoons water; add to the food processor and pulse until dough just starts to form. Turn out onto a piece of plastic wrap; shape into a disk, wrap tightly and refrigerate until firm, at least  1 hour.

Mist a baking sheet with cooking spray. Roll out the dough into a 12-inch round between 2 sheets of floured parchment paper. Remove the top piece of parchment and invert the dough onto the prepared baking sheet; remove the other piece of parchment. Refrigerate until ready to assemble.

Make the filling: Toss the blueberries, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, the lemon juice, cornstarch and salt in a bowl. Whisk the cream cheese, egg yolk, the remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and the nutmeg in a separate bowl.

Spread half of the cream cheese mixture over the dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Top with the blueberries. Fold the edge of the dough over the filling. Drizzle the remaining cream cheese mixture over the berries; refrigerate 30 minutes.

Put an inverted baking sheet in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F. Brush the crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Put the baking sheet with the galette directly on the hot baking sheet in the oven. Bake until the crust is golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool slightly before slicing.
