I had a revelation last weekend that in my 30 years on this earth I have never baked a real homemade pie. It just seems like something a girl (or guy!) should do at least once in her life...so yesterday I baked a pie from scratch. And it turned out disaster free and even looked pretty. I took a picture of course:
David picked peach pie...It has a coconut-almond crumb topping. The recipe was from the book Pie by Ken Haedrich, which has a ton of pie recipes, 300 or so. The only thing I did not like about this particular recipe is it called for lemon zest and lemon juice. I guess this is supposed to make frozen peaches taste more fresh, but I think it ended up overwhelming the peaches a bit. I'd probably just use half the amount of lemon juice if I make this again and I'd ditch the zest.
But all in all I'm pretty proud to have conquered baking a pie! What other challenges should I tackle next?
