I am nothing if not a pie lady.
I need no excuse to bake. Baking, mostly European desserts… buttercream tortes, pate a choux… was the lure that reeled me into cooking in my early 20s. My interests broadened from that point on.
So while I love going full throttle into desserts that require patience, a good eye and a skillful touch, there is a part of my culinary persona that will always be a pie lady. So satisfying, so simply rich, so holiday-ish. Today, it was blueberry.
The purpose of this post is, in as few words as possible, to again announce that eating very well is easy. Here’s proof.
A simple butter dough made in less than five minutes in the Cuisinart.
Crust rolled and easily fitted into a deep-dish pan.
A second crust cut into strips for lattice-work.
Ready for the oven.
Ready for a second piece.
If you celebrate Christmas, I hope your day was merry.
