Yesterday in honor of Pi Day, I made a pie!
I mean, you can't very well celebrate this day without eating a pie-
that would be a shame.
In the past on this day, we've gone out as a family to a restaurant for a slice,
or bought pies to serve at home, but this year I wanted to try my
hand at making a homemade pie.
Every year at Thanksgiving I get all jazzed about making pies,
and every year the pies I make usually fail.
I think making the crust is the worst part.
But today I was going to try my hand at it again.
I found online a delicious cream cheese pie crust recipe,
and a recipe for a sour cherry filling.
My pie actually looked pretty
(except for a few uneven and broken lattice strips),
tasted good (except I loaded it with way too much cherry filling),
and wasn't too complicated to make
(except it probably could have cooked a bit longer).
I paired the pie with vanilla ice cream and mixed up some
whipped cream for the top.
