25 Days of Christmas Baking: Day 14 – Pie

Pie is another brand new baked good for me! I’ve always wanted to do it, but never knew where to start. Turns out make pie is easier than I thought!

I followed this recipe for Mixed Berry Pie from Just So Tasty. The bright red colours of the strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries are tart and bright, and cinnamon really gives it that festive flavour!

Ready to go in for a bake!

The crust is crisp and buttery and while it was easy to make, it did take a big chunk of the day to make because it needs to rest in the fridge for three hours. The biggest challenge for me was the lattice pattern, as you can tell. But overall, I’m very happy with how it turned out!

And here it is fresh out of the oven!

This pie is not overly sweet and the fruit is so refreshing! Best of all, no soggy bottoms here!

Happy Pie Day!!

Today is apparently National Pie Day! Of course it’s a silly holiday but I’m always ready to celebrate, because we all need a bit more FUN in life!

Pie Day calls for a special pie themed outfit for What I’m Wearing Wednesday, of course! Unfortunately I don’t have a pie dress (YET!), or an actual pie (that’s crusty!), but I have the next best thing: a homemade PIE PIN!

It’s a delicious piece of felt cherry pie! Don’t you just want to dig right in?!

I’m usually a pretty simple outfit wearer: just a dress, tights, and cardigan. So I really love a couple of thoughtful accessories – as tiny little details really bring your whole outfit together and allow you to be ANYTHING! So I threw on my pin and my day was a slice! 😀

Hope you’re having a super sweet day!
