There are two recipes that I consider tough to make correctly from scratch-Pie crust and cookies. But tonight, at exactly 8:30pm, I was finally able to successfully make a pie crust from scratch that did not A)Fall apart and/or B) Make me want to say “fuck it” and run to the store to buy Pillsbury pie dough.
Woo hoo! Here is the masterpiece:
The lattice turned out a bit uneven and I had to play a bit with the edges, but who cares, it looks and tastes like a real pie! For the filling, I was lazy and used canned cherry pie filling, but I’m still waiting on the strawberries and rhubarb. Once those babies come in, it will be COMPLETELY from scratch!
Oh and to show you just how commited I am, I will also be making its accompanying ice cream from scratch! My Grandma would be proud.
