So we are apparently NOT all pied out here in the Muddy household. Amid the preparations for last weekend’s Boston Pie Experiment, 6 year old Mudslinger was feeling a bit left out. I promised that I would allow her to make up her own pie recipe after the competition was over. She wasn’t about to let me forget it.
This was also the perfect opportunity to put some of my new ceramic wares to the test. I recently made what I hoped would be the perfect size dishes to make half a pie. I often want to bake but don’t want lots of leftovers hanging around to tempt me. Having a set of smaller dishes would also be perfect for testing and developing recipes in that I could make several small pies at once with slight alterations.
We consulted the Joy of Cooking purely for the sake of proportions of fruit, sugar and flour. Otherwise, Mudslinger’s creative juices were allowed to flow freely.
