Cherry Pie

Today I made my very first from-scratch cherry pie. It's not the most beautiful pie, but it sure tastes good!  Next time I make a pie I'm going to try a more stylized crust- perhaps with lattice work or pretty heart cut-outs. We'll see.



To me, fruit-filled pies and cobblers like this one are one of the sweetest parts of summer. I prefer a piece of pie over cake any day. Soon I hope to make a blackberry cobbler with locally picked berries- yum!



I got the recipe for this cherry pie from The Farm Chicks cookbook. It is a wonderful resource with classic country kitchen design tips, family recipes, and good stories. This particular pie has a crumb topping instead of a crust.





Well, I'm going to enjoy my piece of pie now. Have a great weekend!

  2. I don't make "pretty" pies either, but as long as they taste good that's all that counts!!!
