This time it's been 4 years-but I have managed to once again lose a Chicago
Tribune recipe clipping that I'm pretty sure was another Abby Mandel recipe
because it used a food processor.
I have of course google searched and can't find it or anything similar.
Flour, sugar, butter plus diary was processed and some crumbs reserved.
Reserved crumbs got more sugar and became streusel topping. Rest of dough
was patted into pan and par baked. Sliced fresh peaches were used along
with a custard of eggs, diary, sugar.
Can you help find this again?
I could not find a peach kuchen recipe that mentioned Abby Mandel at all.
I did find three peach kuchen recipes from the Chicago Tribune. Of those three,
the only one that seems similar to your description is the one here:
You are amazing!
This IS basically the correct recipe, but comes from a later printing in the
Tribune food section. Now I remember that at one point I had both clippings
in my file. I am quite certain that originally it ran under Abby Mandel's
name and the dairy used was whipping cream. This later reprint specifies
sour cream. When I realized a few years ago that the recipes in my binder
were essentially duplicates, I only kept the earlier copy which I am guessing
was printed in the 1980s. This yellowed grease stained clipping is what I
misplaced. But now I have the basic proportions of fat/sugar/flour.
