Got the créme fraíche I needed so here's my Clementine Chess Pie.
I have to have SOME "gimmes", right?
I think the twist will be taking on a new variety.
Probably Chess Pie. The name is nerdy so it kind of fits in. 😜
EDIT: COVID-19 shortages meant I haven't been able to buy the créme fraíche for the recipe. I will still count this once made even though it won't happen on 03/14 now.
Made 2 pumpkin pies from scratch!
3 pies for dessert. Cherry, Blueberry and Chocolate. The chocolate pie was a vegan take on a cheese cake. People were trying to guess what the main ingredients was, however no one guessed it was avocado. It was so delicious. I’ll definitely make it again.
1st course consisted of 4 pies. Steak and Guinness, Leek/mushroom and Guinness, Tourtiere, and Turkey Pot Pie. They were all delicious 😋
Made a bunch of mini pies with Henry!

What makes a pie a Pi pie? Pi!
I lost a bet recently, with an applepie at stake, so today is the day I wil pay my depts.
My cherry lattice pie looks like something a child made all by themselves!
I didn't technically make the pie today on Pi Day (3.14 in the US date format) because I have work today and a concert tonight, but I did it yesterday in preparation for eating it today.
I started with a simple a tomato, goat's cheese & thyme tart with puff pastry yesterday for dinner, and spent the rest of the evening attempting a cherry lattice pie.
Making the pastry from scratch - even with a food processor and with a friend supervising - was very difficult and I clearly didn't do a great job because I couldn't shape or cut it without it falling apart, so I ended up amateurly putting it together in the bowl. It looks charming though, like something a child made all by themselves!
As I didn't have a pie tin I used a casserole dish to bake it, which would cook it a little differently.
I don't know if I want to do this again. I enjoy using ready-made pastry for pies and tarts but making my own might not be for me.
The tart was delicious. The pie, which has been partially eaten for breakfast, was also tasty but more for the cherries than the pastry, which tastes like a biscuit that sticks together a bit in your mouth. It certainly is nice, but I've had better.
