My Myyy Miss American Pie…
Baking pie makes me feel like a Southern housewife, taking a finished pie round to a friendly neighbour. Alas, I live in rainy London and talking to our neighbours isn’t really the done thing. It does mean however that I get to enjoy this pie all to myself! Theres always a silver lining somewhere right??
This is my first endeavour into fruit pies as I’ve never been a fan of cooked fruit. I’m not really sure why, but I have strong memories of just eating the crumble topping off of my mums apple crumble. To trick my tastebuds into liking it now, I decided on cherry pie in the hope that it would simply taste like jam in pastry!
It worked!! Or my tastebuds have changed! Either way, I’m a total cherry pie convert and this recipe is a foolproof method adapted from Edd Kimber’s Say It With Cake. (Told you I was a Kimber addict!)
