Pie for My Guy

Wednesday, February 18th, 2004

I had promised Brian pie for Valentines day, but had been so busy I could not make one. Until Tuesday night. I got home from knitting guild and started right in.

I had never made a cherry pie before, but I followed the recipe on the minute tapioca box as my mother recommended. Although there was much too much pie filling for my frozen piecrust, I filled as full as possible and baked away. The remaining filling I boiled on the stove for ice cream topping.

It turned out I should have used less of the filling, as it boiled over a lot in the oven (thank goodness I baked it on top of a cookie sheet). I think it looks really handmade with love, doesn’t it? Not beautiful in a visual-art sense, but beautiful in other ways.

He liked his pie. I love cherry pie thickened with tapioca rather than cornstarch, it is much cleaner and fruitier. I’m glad he likes it, too.
