Pie Time

I did make a pie when Ernest came home. 


It was a delicious Blueberry Crumble pie, from the Ms. American Pie cookbook. But mine turned out rather soupy. Next time I make it I will use a lot more cornstarch.

I was entranced by how the cornstarch settled into the stem end of the blueberry, like a little star.  My people thought it was odd that I was taking pictures, but they should be used to me by now.


Although the pie was not quite as successful as I would have liked, I don't blame the cookbook. There are some fantastic pies in there.

I made the Banana Cream a few weeks ago and it was divine.

My blueberry pies always turn out soupy. I've tried several different recipes. It's not necessarily a bad thing that they are soupy because it just means I have to make another blueberry pie to see if it will turn out non-soupy.

surprising the young dude decided to go to college 3000 miles away when there are pies like that on the west coast :)

But the big question is: DID YOU WEAR OVERALLS WHEN YOU MADE THE PIE?

I find that little star of starch charming, too.

I use instant tapioca as a thickener for my blueberry pies. Works like a charm. I'll try to find you the recipe or ratios. That banana cream pie looks amazing.

Will you post the Banana Cream Pie recipe someday or just tease us with pictures?
