I do have pie on the brain lately. (Doesn't help that I get this email Pie Countdown everyday) Today I whipped up a blackberry/blueberry combo, which to me was a little bit of fail, since the juices really made a soup in the crust. I picked a random recipe and yeah.. Not loving it.
I have the makings for Key Lime and Sour Cream Pear Pie, and I this one is tempting me.. I wish I had people to eat pie.. I think maybe my internal American is wanting to celebrate Thanksgiving again. Something about not getting my pumpkin pie just wasn't right. I had one small pumpkin tart while at home, but that just wasn't enough.
I tried a crustless cranberry pie, and it's amazing, although to me it's more like a bread/coffee cake. Mr.Darcy was craving chocolate, I wasn't feeling sympathetic because I had just popped the pie into the oven. But after trying a bite, he has found his new favourite food!
Does anyone have any family favourites or holiday foods they make at this time of the year?
