Lemon meringue, 13.03.14
Made a very good chicken pie :)
Behold, my nectarine-pear pie!
See, I wanted to make a fruit pie, but I don't like apple pie, berries are expensive, and peaches are out of season, so I chose nectarine-pear because I don't like pears all that much but I do want to eat more of them!
I almost burnt the edges--my mom had to explain to me about wrapping the edges in tin foil shiny side out after finishing the crust so that some of the heat is kept out.
But it is here! My pie with pi!
What makes a pie a Pi pie? Pi!
I lost a bet recently, with an applepie at stake, so today is the day I wil pay my depts.
My cherry lattice pie looks like something a child made all by themselves!
I didn't technically make the pie today on Pi Day (3.14 in the US date format) because I have work today and a concert tonight, but I did it yesterday in preparation for eating it today.
I started with a simple a tomato, goat's cheese & thyme tart with puff pastry yesterday for dinner, and spent the rest of the evening attempting a cherry lattice pie.
Making the pastry from scratch - even with a food processor and with a friend supervising - was very difficult and I clearly didn't do a great job because I couldn't shape or cut it without it falling apart, so I ended up amateurly putting it together in the bowl. It looks charming though, like something a child made all by themselves!
As I didn't have a pie tin I used a casserole dish to bake it, which would cook it a little differently.
I don't know if I want to do this again. I enjoy using ready-made pastry for pies and tarts but making my own might not be for me.
The tart was delicious. The pie, which has been partially eaten for breakfast, was also tasty but more for the cherries than the pastry, which tastes like a biscuit that sticks together a bit in your mouth. It certainly is nice, but I've had better.
