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?
