It’s a Facebook Pie Day! I suppose from a pie purist perspective that I am a cheater. I use the refrigerated roll up pie crust – store brand (since cheaper and very likely that Pi||$bury makes it anyway) – and it is just quick and tasty and easy. For me, it is all about what goes IN the pie. I woke up thinking it would be a blueberry mango but come to find out, no mangos in the freezer. So Triple Berry it is: Blueberry, Raspberry and a few Strawberries. If I had known that I would have been cancelled from work today, I would have gone out to buy the ingredients to make a gluten-free crust for my friend. I will someday, I promise.
I latticed the top crust for flair.
Unfortunately for my pie tasters AND my coffee preferences, I didn’t have any half-n-half nor milk in the house so I had to egg wash the top. Plus my brown sugar sprinkles. I also failed to hit the START button the timer so when I checked on how many minutes remaining of baking time, I saw that 45 minutes waiting and NOT counting down! Uh OH.
Fortunately, my instincts proved in good working order and I didn’t burn the thing. I did cover the edges and gave it a few minutes more.
VERY juicy, huh? I will need to go buy some vanilla ice cream before I serve it tonight.
