Pie Party 2012. Normally I end up missing foodie parties, and since I really don't consider myself a baker... especially leery when it comes to pie making, I would pass the invite by, but somehow I couldn't resist this one. The truth is...
...my mother was the real baker in the family, and I always feel I come up short. That said over the years I have created a few winners... like the Strawberry Custard Tart above. It was so good, my sister insisted I make a couple for her wedding party.
These Strawberry Rhubarb Galettes from Martha Stewart, allows the least able crust maker to actually pull of gorgeous and delicious pies, because the intention is rustic not picture-perfection.
Another of my favorite tarts, tasted at Inn on The Twenty - a lovely Inn in Ontario's Wine Country... and so good I had to buy the book!This Blueberry Minted Custart Tart is particularly easy and gorgeous and delicious.
The Dark Chocolate & Candied Orange Tart was one I came up with years ago for my chocoholic Honey.
If none of those entice you... try these summer fruit pies and tarts from Martha Stewart. In fact, I'm not sure which pie I'll be making soon, but I thought I'd share my list with you.
