As Easy As Pie

I've heard that
"Pie is the new cupcake"
Pie shops are now opening up everywhere.
Restaurants are now even having pie "Happy Hours".

So it appears that pies are getting their big break in the dessert world.

I received  this for my birthday.

The list of desserts and photos are enough to make you die for a piece of pie.
It reminded me of looking through the Sears catalog as a kid, not
knowing where to start my Christmas list.

I let Ed choose what to make first.
He picked the Blackberry Jam Tart.

It was great.  I'm not a big blackberry fan. I guess it's the
seeds, but this was very good.

Last week a friend gave me a couple of Meyer Lemons.

So I tried the Caramelized Lemon Tart.

The crust was flaky with a bit of sweetness and
the filling was tart.
I didn't get the top too caramelized, but it
really didn't matter except for looks.

I'd highly recommend this book if you want
to catch the next dessert craze.

There's a pie or tart for every occasion,
for eating or for throwing.

Enjoy your holiday weekend and be sure to
Save room for a slice of pie.

Until Next Time-
