I’m back for a post with my very first pie!
I made this for a friend’s pie-bake-off party. I wasn’t totally pleased with the result but for a first try pie, it was pretty good. (Plus I did get some compliments, so my baker’s ego isn’t totally ruined! 😉 Especially since I handmade the pie dough!)
I would make this again but next time would definitely invest in the crystallized ginger the recipe calls for, since without it the streusel is pretty lame and not zingy enough. I really liked the addition of a quick lemon curd glaze as a prettier topping, though! Also, the pie dough is rolled out rather thick–about 1/4″–but it’s a good choice since the berries have a lot of water in them and the juice will bubble over.
Finally, I’m excited to say that I’m participating in another event at Anthropologie this summer! They’re holding events for local women to talk about something they’re passionate about and I’m reprising my role as baker-in-residence on August 1 at 6 PM. I hope you’ll come join me if you’re local! I’ll be bringing treats for sure.
