Hi Eileen, Yes, you should prick all the way through the pastry. If you space the rows of fork holes about 1/2 an inch apart that will work great. You don't want to over do it & have the pastry fall apart, but do want enough to deflate the pastry when cooking. Thanks!

Hi Ruth, Yes, that would be a great combination. Goat cheese comes in a number of textures, from the usual crumbly to something shredable like Arina. Try it with your favorite and let us know how it turns out.

Hello Bridget, In my 12" pan I use about 3/4 of a loaf of bread. Since quality artisanal breads tend to come in all different sizes, your best to judge the amount of bread by just filling one complete layer of bread in whatever size pan you're using. The bread should be touching, but not compressed in.

Hi Walt, You can just half the recipe. Use a much smaller pyrex dish or 6" pan and just follow the steps using half of the ingredients listed. It will come out great.

Hi Eva, Thanks for your comment. I love the way this tastes with stock, but here are two other options for different tastes / ingredient availability: 1. if it's the chicken part you'd like to avoid you can use veggie stock/broth in its place. or 2. if you want to not use any stock replace the 4 cups chicken stock with 2 cups of water for steaming the cauliflower and at the last 5 minutes of cooking add 2 cups of milk. Don't let the milk boil, but just warm to a simmer. Blend and finish the rest of the recipe as is. Hope this helps. Tiffany

Hi Kathy, If you use 1 cup from a regular 15 oz can or pak of pumpkin you'll have some left over. Enjoy! Tiffany

Hi Barbara, yes, it's great even the next day!
Hi Gisele, There will be a quality difference in refrigerated, reheated turkey from how turkey just out of the oven is. Therefore this isn't a recommended method. However, if you decide to do this method, you should put the sliced turkey in a pan, add a small, oven-proof dish with hot water into the tray and cover the whole pan tightly with foil. The water will help keep the turkey moist while reheating.

Hello Joyce, Thanks for your comment. Yes, you could use corn starch place of tapioca pearls. Use half as much corn starch. If you try this, let us know how it turns out. Tiffany

Hello Judy, In this recipe I use instant tapioca pearls, whole. They are they type that cook quickly (depending on brand might also be called quick cooking tapioca). If you don't want the pearl texture in the pie you can grind the tapioca in a spice grinder before using it. Enjoy and let us know how it turns out. Tiffany

Hi Debbie, I love Mark Bittman's "Flaky Piecrust". Here's a link: http://www.howtocookeverything.com/recipes/flaky-piecrust Tiffany
Hi Joanna, This cake is delicious - I hope you enjoyed it! When I make it I pour it over top, like a sauce. Of course, the small amount of cake left over did soak in. It was delicious that way also (just less shiny during plating!) Tiffany
Hi Cara, Thanks for your comment. Any cheese you like to pair with scrambled eggs would work well in this. Swiss, cheddar, or herbed cheeses would provide great flavor! Tiffany
Thank you, Sara!
In this recipe, I used a firm goat cheese called "Arina" you can, however use a soft goat cheese or really, anything you have on hand. Enjoy!
Hi Martin, Thanks for your comment. I cook it covered for about half of the time, then uncover it to evaluate how liquidy it is. If it's got a good liquid to pea ratio leave it covered, if it seems liquidy then uncover it and let the steam evaporate.
Hi Ellen, A 9 inch pie plate will work perfect. I usually use a slightly deep pie plate since I like the crust to stand up a bit above the pie filling. Thanks Tiffany
Hello Renee, we eat the turkey at room temperature, with warm gravy and really enjoy it!

Hi Romy, I haven't tried this, but I believe it's generally not advised to substitued almond flour for wheat flour. There are gluten-free baking flours on the market. I think that would be a great place to start. Tiffany
Hello Priscilla Thanks for your comment! Glad your cake came out great with yogurt - did you use plain or a flavor?
Hello Emma, Orange blossom water is actually a fragrant distillation of orange blossoms. It's different from orange extract. We do sell it at Zabar's store in NYC. If you can't find it near you, you could try substituting with 2 teaspoons orange liqueur however I haven't tested this so I can't recommend it. You could also just leave it out of the recipe. The cake will still be delicious - just slightly different. Thanks for writing! Tiffany
Thank you to readers who wrote about the mention of milk in the preparation. Milk is not an ingredient in this recipe, it's not listed as an ingredient and has been removed from the preparation. Thanks! We hope you try the recipe and enjoy!
