Reading and Book Signing for
"The Highwayman" by Craig Johnson
Sat May 14th 2:00 pm
Location: the Inner Circle of the Sheridan County Library                            


We will host a reading and book signing with Craig for his new novella, "The Highwayman. Remember that we will not have him in-store, but rather at the Inner Circle of the Library.

When Wyoming highway patrolman Rosey Wayman is transferred to the beautiful and imposing landscape of the Wind River Canyon, an area the troopers refer to as no-man's-land because of the lack of radio communication, she starts receiving officer needs assistance calls. The problem? They're coming from Bobby Womack, a legendary Arapaho patrolman who met a fiery death in the canyon almost a half-century ago. With an investigation that spans this world and the next, Sheriff Walt Longmire and Henry Standing Bear take on a case that pits them against a legend: The Highwayman."

Rhubarb custard Pie with Pecan Crust
Taken from "Country Living's Pies & Tarts"

Crust

1/2 cup pecan halves
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into pieces
2 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon water

Filling

1 1/4 pounds rhubarb, trimmed and coarsely chopped (4 cups)
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon cornstarch

1. Make the crust: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, process the pecans until finely ground. Add the flour and sugar; process until combined. Add the butter, egg yolks, and vanilla; process until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
2. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan; crimp decoratively along the edge. With the tines of a fork, prick the bottom and sides of the crust. In a small bowl, mix together the egg white and water. Brush the bottom and sides of the crust with the egg wash. Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
3. Make the filling: In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb, sugar, lemon zest, and salt. Spoon the filling into the crust. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs and egg yolk. Mix in the cream and cornstarch. Spoon over the rhubarb mixture.
4. Finish the pie: Cover the edge of the crust with foil to prevent overbrowning and bake the pie until the custard is firm, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
