That’s right. I bought a pumpkin pie. Two, actually, from Trader Joe’s. Seems I’m still not in the pie zone.
But wait! I did make a pie. A pear, apple and cranberry pie.
I was totally gonna make my own pie crust. But then I got to TJ’s and Danae gave me that look. “Jules? Really?” And she held up this:
And yeah, that made things a lot easier. So I made this pie:
I riffed on this recipe:
Six little apples from my Farm box. No idea what kind they were.
1/4 cup whole cranberries
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Peel and slice the fruit. Combine together in a big bowl with the brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Roll out the dough and place in a pie pan. Arrange filling nicely. Bake 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then lower heat to 350 and bake for another 40 minutes, or until house smells delicious….
Beat away 12-year-old boy who wants to sample pie.
Bring to Thanksgiving feast.
So I’ve got a two pies to bring to my sister-in-law’s (one pumpkin pie already consumed by children….); a cranberry chutney that promises to be awesome, some buns, and two cans of olives that we can wear on our fingers….
I think I’m set.
Happy Thanksgiving y’all! Let me know how yours went!
