Pie Update

Color me surprised. No. Really, REALLY surprised.

Most Minor Minion came over today and brought his pies. You remember me mentioning said pies, right?

Well, with the exception of some missing salt in the crust, both pies turned out… kind of good! Even the pumpkin one! He added enough sugar to make it palatable, so it tasted a lot like sweet potatoes. With a crust.

I’m still in shock, and he’s still coming over after work on Saturday for baking lessons.

The crust is surprisingly good, even made from whole wheat flour (he thought it would be the same as regular flour). He didn’t see any salt called for, and it was definitely missing, but it was still good.

Despite not peeling the apples, he chose a good kind that doesn’t have a thick peel on it, so it wasn’t too noticeable. There wasn’t enough sugar in it, and again the salt was missing, but for a first try at pie, it was awesome.

I’m really proud of him for doing that. Perhaps we have a budding pastry chef in our midst.


  1. Good for him. Pastry is tricksy stuff. If he's managed to make edible crust out of wholemeal flour, he has the makings of a good pie-maker.

  2. I think you're right. So far, he's done a much better crust than I ever have. :)

  3. I am really impressed. Making pies is definitely an art. Maybe you do have a budding pastry chef there. Awesome!


I love to hear from you. :)
