It's been awhile since I've made a pie, so I ignored Raoul's suggestion that I bring cookies to our rooftop dinner with friends (I know you liked this better anyway, love). He made one of the best burgers I've ever had and Paul brought a fruit tray that included a fruit which none of us could identify. After much sniffing, poking and unhygienic inspection, Amanda and Google helped us figure out that it was...some kind of passion fruit.
I tried a new crust recipe this time, it was supposed to be very flaky (mmm!). It was delicious, but ridiculously difficult to roll out. In fact, the top crust was really patchy b/c everytime I tried to lift it off the counter, it broke so I gave up, threw it over the filling and placed extra pieces over the holes. The filling was mostly blueberry (my favorite!) with some peaches tossed in as well. At the end I decided to add a layer of candied pecans on top of the pie. I just wanted an extra delicious touch, but it masked the lumpy-ness of the crust as well (which was made worse by the fact that I made an amateur mistake and completely forgot to cut slits in the top to vent the pie). This pie really survived a lot...including my knocking it off the bench where I was sitting, after a few too many drinks!
Just look at these beautiful, natural-hair-color people!
