So, good readers, if you have been following along, you know that there has been pie! Thanksgiving meant pies for a few friends and their families – Cranberry Tart, Pecan Pecan PECAN Pie and Deep Dish Apple Pie.
The following weekend the holiday parties began, and there was Pate Pie. Leftover savory caraway rye dough became 3 tart shells for Scrambled Egg Breakfast Pies and the this weekend – – –
Artichoke Hearts, Oyster Mushroom and Goat Cheese Pie for another party and the pie of my dad’s heart – shared with friends here at Bowen Court – home brew Mince Pie. I made the fruit / nut mix on Sunday afternoon of Thanksgiving weekend and let it stew in its own juices for two full weeks. It went into a pecan tart shell and was topped with hazelnut gelato. Oh, tr-la-la-la-la!
Do any of these appeal? Need something to serve during the holidays but don’t have time to do it yourself? Click on the ABOUT tab or email me – let’s talk
The gifts? My neighbor’s daughter is going to medical school in Granada and brought me several of the prettiest, shiniest nutmegs I’ve ever seen – I have a feeling that I’m going to find out that I only thought I knew what fresh grated nutmeg tastes and smells like. But best of my big brother made me a 4” high platform to stand on when rolling pastry. It tucks neatly away and it is going to save my back! So, this is what the world is like for the rest of you? Pretty cool!
Happy pie month!
