When I made my first pie crust from scratch, it tasted GREAT. However, it was not enough dough to make a proper crust. I wanted to make one with the pinched edges and I ended up having to make one with a fork chevron due to time. You can see a video here:
However, this time was different. LOOK AT THIS BEAUT:
I was SO pleased. Proper chuffed, perhaps. This is a buttermilk pie made for one of my favorite people. This is one of her favorite pies, so naturally I am terrified for her to try it. She came to pick it up (I provide near-contactless delivery to my ATX-area friends). However, it is a PIE. I cannot sneak a taste. A sliver missing would be pretty damned obvious.
Luckily, I made a double-batch of dough! So I made three tartlets that I filled with the same custard and some sliced pears. The organic pears and vanilla sugar were both from Farmhouse Delivery. My partner and I split that one, then I sent the other two her way. With some VERY sad looking macarons. But that’s another story for another day…
Here’s a picture of those adorbs tartlets:
I wish I had enough dough for four because I really didn’t want to share mine. Ha! You can watch a short video of the dough process here. In under two minutes that dough is whipped into shape thanks to the time lapse feature on my phone!
Thanks for reading!
