A Year of Pies challenge
Posted on 06/08/2012 by act_one_shotgun
I’ve been presented with a cool challenge: a friend of mine and her sister have asked for a sort of pie-of-the-month club. I’ll be making them a pie each, every month, for a year. The only guideline is that it must be seasonal.
This month’s is CHERRY, by request. I boiled cherries with sugar, cornstarch, vanilla and bourbon. Into the crusts, then topped with a sugar-cookie-ish crumble. Very sweet, but I know at least one of these pies is going to a couple of little girls who will probably appreciate it!
Mexican vanilla is amazing. That giant bottle was a Christmas gift from my grandmother.
The next 11 pies will be my choice. I think I have 12 different pies living in my brain, but seasonal is going to be fun!
