3.14 is one of my favorite holidays, and I take it pretty seriously. This year we had our customary pie party, inviting some friends over to share in the flaky goodness. I have a few tried and true pies that I make every year, but this year I tested some new recipes, and I'm pleased to say they were successes! Here's the lineup:
Allen's Favorite Cherry
Blueberry Sour Cream
this recipe was the winner. It turned out pretty great. Almost like a blueberry cheesecake. I'll definitely be putting this recipe in my collection.
Hoosier Sugar Cream
the recipe: flour, sugar, and salt; add cream and vanilla; bake. What is this crazy magic?? How does this runny mixture firm up to become a creamy, smooth pie?? I don't know, but it was magic indeed. I compare the taste to snickerdoodle cookie dough. Very yummy. Next time I might try it with nutmeg on top instead of cinnamon. We have lived in a state bordering Indiana for 6 years, so it's like an almost-local delicacy. Look at me, embracing the midwest!
Our friends added to the spread, to make Pi(e) Day truly wonderful this year.
