Happy Pi(e) Day!

14 Mar

Baking is joyful and creating treats around a particular theme makes it even more fun. 

In honor of Pi Day, I decided to make a couple of mini apple pies — one to give and one to keep.  The crust recipe is from a holiday pie making class I took at Sur La Table last fall. I’ve tried numerous crust recipes and methods and this is now my go-to recipe. It doesn’t call for any out-of-the-ordinary ingredients  and the method is straightforward. I dunno, maybe I’ve gotten better at making pie crusts or maybe it’s this recipe, but since adding the recipe to my repertoire my crusts are always flaky.

The filling is based on a recipe from one of my favorite bakeries in Seattle, Macrina. Brown sugar in the filling adds another dimension of flavor. Delicious.  I think I just found my new go-to apple pie recipe. 

I’m writing this post on the run, so I promise to post the actual recipes  as soon as I’m at my computer!
