Can you believe, we are now averaging about five different pies a week. Now, we're not only fattening ourselves up, but the neighborhood too ; )
For now though, I wanted to share some pictures from this week.
Cookie crust, covered in chocolate, and sprinkled with chopped peanuts...oh my!
So as you can see, I'm having trouble departing from my other birds. I decided to take it slow, and found comfort in this set up : )
Aviana Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Pie
Some say this was our best yet!
Pie. It's what's for breakfast!
Mmmm...breakfast of champions!
We decided to try a Pear Cranberry Pie next.
The crumb topping was amazingly good...it had ground up walnuts and pecans in it ; )
This one tasted really good, but super earthy. We decided to call it,
The Hippie From Brickippsee Pie
This next one really intrigued me! I wanted to make it, even though I wasn't so sure we'd like it. It's called a Lemon Shaker Pie. I love the taste of lemon, but don't like meringue, so I thought this might work out well.
It was quite the process. The interesting thing about it is ~ you use the lemon rind. Yep, you heard that right. The rind!
We cut the lemons into paper thin slices. We tried to use our mandoline, but that wasn't happening, so it was out with the knives! The Guy was much better at slicing, than me. I almost lost a finger, or two! We then added the zest of the lemon, salt and sugar and stirred it all up.
Next, you cover and store at room temperature overnight.
Look who also wanted to be part of The Lemon Shaky.
Her Auntie Dinah and Uncle Sean went to Paris and London over the holidays. Look what they brought back...the sweetest little apron ; )
Did you know Rainey also doubles as a bird? When we are cooking/baking, she sometimes perches on the couch. At times, I even think she's going to attempt a jump!
Kama's brother Zander stayed with us all last week (which was often times unbearably difficult for me.)
He's saying, "Pie? Is it good? Okay, just one bite please?!?"
There you have it the...
Come on Shake, Shake it Pie!
Isn't it beautiful inside?
Oh my goodness, this slice is so neat looking.
It was really good, too!
The lemon filling was accompanied by one of our flakiest crusts yet.
I think I'm going to have to hit this one up again right now.
Bye ~ off to have another bite of ~ Pie!
