Until recently, I had never made a pie before. With the exception of pumpkin, I'm just not a fan of pies. However, when the boy went to the beach with his family for a week, I figured I would make him a homecoming present.
The recipe comes from the Baker's Dozen cookbook (which I've mentioned before here and here), and the pie was a success. I will admit that for my first pie I cheated with pre-made pie crusts, but if it is something I get into more, I will go the completely home-made route.
My favorite thing about the pie is the actual pan I baked it in. I got it for Christmas last year. If you are a fellow nerd, I found it online here.
Have you baked a pie recently? What kind of pie do you like?
