My kids found this app and have been playing it relentlessly for the past week. Beat the Boss (as well as Beat the Boss 2 and Beat the Boss 3) is just that, a game where the tables are turned and you get to torture your boss. The app starts with your cartoon boss berating you...then you take out your aggression. You can throw him around the office or choose a weapon to inflict damage. The weapons range from office supplies like pencils or thumbtacks to water guns and boxing gloves on a spring to grenades, swords and artillery.
Makes two 8 inch crusts (for one cherry pie)
3 cups all purpose flour
4 oz. (1 stick) very cold unsalted butter, cubed
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 large egg
1/3 cup very cold water
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. white vinegar
1 Tbsp. lemon zest
3 Tbsp. water
1 1/2 lbs. frozen sour cherries, thawed and liquid drained
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl combine sugar, cornstarch, salt, cherries, and vanilla & almond extract. Allow to rest for 15 minutes.
In a food processor pulse together the flour, butter, and shortening until it resembles course corn meal. Place flour mixture into a large mixing bowl.
Add egg, water, salt, zest, and vinegar to flour mixture and mix by hand just until mixture forms a dough.
Cut dough into two pieces and wrap each piece in plastic wrap, flattening each piece into a disk. Chill in refrigerator for 45-60 minutes.
Once chilled remove one disk from refrigerator and on a lightly floured surface roll out dough into a round shape. Place dough lightly into pie pan. Fill pie with cherry filling and remove second disk from refrigerator.
Roll out second disk of dough until it is about 1 inch wider around than the pie plate. Cut dough into strips. Take each strip of dough and weave over and under each other strip to create a lattice top. Carefully brush top with egg wash being very careful not to get egg wash in the cherry filling.
Bake pie at 350° F until crust is a golden brown. Serve cooled.
