Project Pie: Week 4

Project Pie continues and it was Adam’s pick this week. Chapter 4 is Refreshing Refrigerator Pies. We had a bunch of black cherries in the fridge so he chose Cherry Burgundy Pie:

Adam christened our new pastry cutter, which he loved, and proclaimed he didn’t like the mat because their 9” mark was too small for our pie pan.

He hand pitted and cut all the cherries. The recipe called for canned black cherries, we used fresh. We weren’t sure if canned ones were cooked at all…we used ours raw. In hind site I think cooking them would have helped.2014-08-03 20.01.12

I was relaxing so I missed the next step…but here’s his pie shell ready to be filled. It has to cool first.2014-08-03 20.51.01

There are lots of cooling steps in this recipe. But here is the final one.2014-08-04 07.39.15

It cut pretty well the next day.2014-08-04 17.54.07

It’s a really pretty colorful pie. Just missing a dollop of crème..2014-08-04 17.54.26

This wasn’t my favorite pie by a long shot. It wasn’t bad, but I felt it was just lacking flavor. And I didn’t care for the cherries in it. I think if they had been cooked they would have been softer, cause they were kind of tough. Adam thought it was alright. But the real lover of this pie was Charlie! She gobbled it up every night. We even gave her her own (small!) piece. Happy girl! 2014-08-04 17.58.19
