Okay so this won’t post until late Pi day (3/14) but I figured I just need to get this up because I had made a pie, it was Pi Day and I needed to post something. I was debating about wether or not to post this because I didn’t get a picture of the pie after it was cut. Let’s just call it a brainfart and move on. I am sorry it has been awhile but SO MUCH is coming up! I need to stop dreading doing things and just do them. Things get done faster that way. Things I am not dreading are the ideas I have coming up of things to bake for you. I LOVE them! I can’t wait to get started. I really hope I can bang some stuff out tonight and tomorrow so I won’t be leaving you silent for as long as I did this last week.
This is my second time making a pie crust and instead of trying to fit all the ingredients into my mini-chopper (I don’t have a food processor!) I decided to kick it old school and work the dough with two forks (I don’t even have a pastry cutter). It totally worked! Julie from Willow Bird Baking recommended using lard in the crust and I would have to say she was right. May I recommend, however, not tasting the dough till it is cooked cause then you could get a crumb of lard in the bit you are tasting and that may make you want to spit it out and completely question what you are doing. Once it is baked it will be completely awesome.
So in the interest of more and better future stories and recipes to make, I am going to leave you early with some GeekyLinks and the recipe. First up is an awesome story about how How Dolphins Say Hello. It is just the neatest thing ever! Next up is some Princess Bride awesomeness. Lastly, is something I REALLY want but will NEVER be able to afford Harry Potter Wizards Collection.
