Tis the Season for Pie
So on Sunday our little family went for an walk in the afternoon sun. We found a trail through some public fields and there were blackberry bushes everywhere. Needless to say I got a hankering to make pie. The funny thing is that I love to make pie. The fist summer I was married I swear I made a pie out of every fresh fruit possible. This is the funny part, I only like to eat one or two pieces, mostly i just like the process and beauty of pie making. I think it is the sculptural aspect. My poor husband probably gained all of his excess weight that summer eating all of those pies.I also always have a little bit of pie crust left over and I hate wasting food. So I made these little cutouts...Then I filled them with a dollop of homemade blackberry jam and pinched them up into cute little squares.After they cooked for 25 minutes we ate them up. Yum!
