I have made more pies in the past week than in the past year or two!
I’ve made four of these lemon meringue pies. I finally got the meringue made right on this one, but I still need to work on my peaks. They should look better than this. Here is a link to the Betty Crocker recipe that I use to make my lemon meringue pies.
I also made a blackberry pie yesterday, but didn’t get a picture. But it was picture perfect. Here’s the link to that recipe.
This morning, I decided to make a cherry pie, but had to search for a recipe since it had been so long since I had made one. I had a hard time decided which one to try, but I think I picked the right one.
I took this one to quilting this afternoon so I would have a taste panel, and I came home with an empty pie plate. I used to make a lot of cherry pies, but I don’t remember any that I made or any that I’ve eaten anywhere else, tasting as good as this one did. Here is the recipe that I used. It remembered putting cinnamon in my cherry pie, but this one just called for almond extract. Yum! It is perfect!!
Since I was pretty sure that I wouldn’t be bringing any cherry pie home from quilting, I made this custard pie to leave at home. I used the recipe from my Betty Crocker cookbook for this one. I tried to find a link but the Betty Crocker page didn’t provide a direct link. Slightly warm custard pie is very good, too. So easy to make.
It had rained Sunday night, but the sun was shining early Monday morning when I went out and caught these daffodils blooming on the south side of my house.
I did work on the baby lovie tonight. I finished sewing it together and started clipping the borders. I made the border different from anything I have made before, so we will see what happens after I wash it. I need to do laundry tomorrow, and work on my flower bed, too. It sounds like we can count on nice warm weather for at least another week.
