Eric Roth PhotographyBaked Apple Dumpling Pie
- Ken Haedrich, The Daily Meal
If this pie sounds like a cross between baked apples and apple dumplings, well, it is. It's baked with a top pastry only, which molds itself around the apples so handsomely that I don't even bother to invert the pie, lest the pastry vanish beneath the apples. I use Golden Delicious apples here because they hold their shape well. They're halved, cored, and placed in the pan in a pool of melted butter, brown sugar, and raspberry preserves. A raisin-brown sugar-walnut mixture is spooned into the hollowed cores, à la baked apples, then the
Travel just about anywhere on Earth, and you're likely to encounter a dumpling. For just about as long as humans have been eating, they've been dropping balls of dough into boiling water or stock, and they've been filling them with meat or vegetable mixtures for nearly as long as that.Read More »from Around the World in 7 Dumplings
Over the years, creating a filled dumpling has become an art form. Just take a look at the soup dumpling, a dim sum favorite: a mixture of meat and gelatin-rich broth is chilled until it becomes a solid, then it's wrapped up in thin dough and steamed until the mixture inside melts.

For much of the world, though, filled dumplings are somewhat more rudimentary, even though they still require a great deal of technique and time to properly prepare. Some, like tortellini or the Russian pelmeni, are twisted into shapes, and all

For Erin Evenson, who took home a giant check as the blue ribbon champ of Sutter Home's 2012 Build a Better Burger contest, it's cooked up from family memories and an ode to New York City's No. 7 train.What does a $100,000 prize-winning Read More »from What Does a $100,000 Burger Taste Like?
"This is my burger of a lifetime," the Brooklyn-based cook told Yahoo! Shine. "It kind of ties together my family [and] my love of New York City. When I finally put it all together I thought, 'That'll work.'"

Evenson, who grew up with parents who loved to forage for food, often ate watercress as a kid. "I always thought it was the absolute best watercress in the world until I moved to New York about 10 years ago. I went to a Thai restaurant in Woodside, Queens, and I had a fried crispy watercress salad there. And that just changed my mind entirely. 'OK, this is watercress.'" Evenson now jokingly calls the 7 train that runs to Queens "The Crispy Watercress Express."
