Cherry Pie

This week I attempted my first pie. I love to bake; cookies, cakes, bread, but pies have always seemed harder and more scary.

I decided to go for it this week when on of the Small Things on the Home Sanctuary blog was to make something from scratch. We have a few bags of fresh cherries we picked this summer, which we froze, that were just sitting there waiting to be used for something. While, I will admit that the pie was not the prettiest pie ever made it tasted great, and once it is paired with some vanilla ice cream who cares what it looked like in the pie plate anyway.

For those of you interested in what it did look like here is a picture for your viewing pleasure.

Also, while the pie was not as hard as I thought it might be, I think that I will stick to the cookies, cakes, and breads for awhile and maybe try again later.

Cherry is my favorite pie. It looks delicious! Maybe I need to go back to the store....

Listen sister...That is a major accomplishment. I have never made an actual pie (a cobbler but not a pie). Way to go! It looks good to me :)

Well, the coffee is probably cold almost 48 hours later, but I thought I'd drop in to say hello!

I was just thinking how amazing your pie looks! I'm not sure that I could even begin to make one!

Hope you had a blessed weekend!

Cherry pie from SCRATCH! I'm impressed. I've only ever opened a can of cherry pie filling and dumped it into the crust.

Crust intimidates me. I think I will put it on my list of 100 Things...Get Good At Piecrust.

Love the photo of the kids and daddy. That is PRICELESS!
