Look, Karyn!

Enough with the guilt for not having made good on my promise to bake a "real" blueberry pie for Todd if he helped us pick the berries. Boy, did he help!
I looked up the recipe for Pate Brisee on Martha's website and followed it to the letter, except added a tsp of baking powder per Priscilla's recipe. Isn't it beautiful?
Unfortunately for me, the crust was absolutely delicious, the perfect blend of tenderness and crispiness. How can I ever go back to Pillsbury?! Todd even declared that I had proven my ability and now I'm free to proclaim myself a real baker. He told me if I want to, I can go back to the fakes, since this one took at least 2 hours (good grief). The question is - can I go back?

A. Gorgeous.
B. I wish I could have had a piece.
C. Todd is one blessed husband.
D. It may be tough to go back.
E. Very nice of Todd to tell you that you can go back to the fakes.

(This is really Laura by the way but I don't feel like logging Nik out so you're getting his name!)

That is a B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L pie! I'm sure it was quite yummy and flaky. One of these days I'll make it to Oregon, and, when I do, I just might want a piece of blueberry pie! I might have to try the crust recipe one of these days. I think I'll try it with pumpkin. Pie=YUM!

Love, Karyn
