Why do I like pie so much?
I've been obsessing over Pinterest lately. It's a neat way to collect visuals of the things I like. One of my favorite boards is a collection of pies and tarts I've come across. There are some classic ideas, innovative ideas, savory, ultra sweet... It's a variety of delicious treats with the same basic structure.
I love pie. It's no secret, I really love pie. Something about the rustic appeal just draws me in. It's the combination of flaky, buttery crust and sweet, but slightly tangy fruit. If I could drop out of school and just bake pies all day, I would.
I find that making my own dough, making creative crusts and preparing the filling with love is therapeutic. It's something that takes my mind off things and I get lost in the process. It's hard to explain why it's so lovely to me, it just is. I think my calling in life is to be a pie baker. And so today I made a pie.
