Birthday pie

calikingcaliking Posts: 12,489
I’ve been working on my pie game. With help from folks here, I’ve tested some pie dough/crust  recipes, and improved my technique as well. 

In lieu of a cake, I opted to make a raspberry pear pie. The Big Clock went tits up yesterday, so this was done on the LBGE. First time trying a lattice top. Looks pretty good, but I haven’t sliced into it yet.

    Looks great.  Happy to see there isn't a hole in the center of it.  Yet.
    not yet. But the night is still young. And the pie is still warm...

    You're too kind. I'm on a bit of a roll recently, since I seem to have had some time to goof off and have some fun. It may not last much longer :)

    Thanks. Work in progress. Not confident enough yet to use the little bit of leaf lard that I have left from our piggies, but I'll get there.

    *yawn* what? Another killer cook from Ashish? Really?
    You do not cook.
    Instead you roll out masterpieces like a boss and make everyone look bad.
    Awesome pie my friend.
    I dare not show this cook to My Beautiful Wife, she would be super Jelly. Pie baking is her specialty, do not do this at BB..please....

    Puhlease! Cooking traditions in my family did not include pie, so I'm over here trying to figure out, literally from scratch, what many here have enjoyed for generations. Got some ways to go. 

    My sister bakes some great pies, but I only get to to eat those a bare couple of times a year. So i decided to take matters into my own hands :)

    It was quite good. Never had raspberry pear pie before, but I think I'll make this again later in the year.

    Great looking pie. There’s a book called “The Art of the Pie”. Good book if you want to learn pie making. Got my wife’s copy at Blue Willow Bookstore at Memorial and Dairy Ashford.
