Lucky Leaf Bake Your Heart Out

Ahh Valentine’s day. When I think of Valentine’s day, I think of delicious baked sweets. And love of course :) I love to bake and try new things and
Lucky Leaf has some great news. Lucky Leaf has released their Bake Your Heart Out Recipe Book  which full of tons of wonderful sweets.

I was very fortunate to be able to test a few of the new  recipes from the Bake Your Heart Out Recipe Book 

Chocolate Cherry Cake with Rum Ganache

and the Lucky Stars Ginger Spice Apple Tart

These recipes were fun to make . My daughter had fun being my little helper, and we made each of these great desserts on a Sunday afternoon together. It was fun, just some mommy and daughter time.

I have to say I omitted the  rum ganache from the Chocolate Cherry Cake with Rum Ganache recipe, well we just are not really fans of the sauce. And the cake was just as good without the sauce.

I changed the Lucky Stars Ginger Spice Apple Tart very slightly. We made this more valentine friendly. We used a heart cutter instead of stars. It just looked more romantic. And my daughter had a great time helping me cut the hearts for the top of the tart out.

So if you are looking for some great recipes, and are planning to entertain make sure to check out Lucky Leaf’s recipe section.

Make sure to check out the how to videos on their facebook page.

Here is the recipe for the Lucky Stars Ginger Spice Apple Tart

Lucky Stars Ginger Spice Apple Tart


  1  15-ounce package rolled refrigerated unbaked pie crust (2 crusts)
  2 21-ounce cans LUCKY LEAF  Apple Pie Filling
 1/2 cup butter
 1 tablespoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
  1 tablespoon vanilla
  1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  Butter-flavor nonstick cooking spray
  1 teaspoon sugar
  1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  Frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed, or vanilla ice cream (optional)
  Chopped crystallized ginger (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Let pie crusts stand at room temperature according to package directions. Unroll one of the pie crusts. On a lightly floured surface, roll crust to a 13- to 14-inch circle. Transfer pie crust to a 10x2-inch round tart pan with removable bottom or a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate. Trim crust to the edge of the pan. Set aside. 2. Unroll remaining pie crust. Using a 2- to 3-inch star cutter or other desired cutter, make 5 to 6 cutouts in the pastry. Set pastry and cutouts aside. 3. In a large saucepan heat pie filling, butter, 1 tablespoon crystallized ginger, vanilla, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh ginger over medium heat until butter is melted, gently stirring frequently. 4. Pour apple filling into pastry lined tart pan. Place the pastry with the cutouts atop the filling. Trim pastry to edge of tart pan and gently press the top pastry to the bottom pastry to seal. If using a pie plate, fold top pastry under bottom pastry and pinch to seal; crimp edge as desired. Place star cutouts atop the pastry, leaving most of the openings in the crust exposed. Lightly coat pastry with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl combine sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle over pastry. Place tart on a foil-lined baking sheet. 5. To prevent overbrowning, cover the edge of the tart or pie with foil. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil. Bake about 10 minutes more or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack about 1 hour. Remove sides of the tart pan. Serve warm. If desired, top with whipped topping and additional crystallized ginger. Makes 8 servings.

Cooking Time: 50 minutes

✽ Added you to my blogroll, Linky ❤

You didn't leave extra info boxes on the Rafflecopter form. [You need to check mark "I need extra info to verify this entry" and "Tell your entrants what info you need."]

I can't believe you still haven't figured out how to use the new Rafflecopter form (or format tweets). That, you refuse to, you're after comments, or you ignore them.

The Twitter sharer in Rafflecopter automatically shortens all urls, so the tweet text in your instructions: /giveaway @suelee1998 2/6/12 please RT

comes out like this: /giveaway @suelee1998 2/6/12 please RT

Don't worry, this will be the last giveaway I enter here. There are too many others that do use the form correctly.
