Peach berry pie

Do you ever have those weeks where you feel as though you are perpetually getting in and out of your car with hardly a moment to sit down with a cup of tea? Well, it's been one of those weeks for me. Each hour stretched to seam-splitting capacity with errands and work and no end in sight until next week arrives; couple that with rainy weather that leaves me sitting in my car looking like a miserable soggy cat hoping that my constant shivering is at least burning some extra calories makes coming back to my heated house and doing absolutely nothing seem like heaven on Earth.

Thanks to some skillful organising I managed to scrounge up a large enough time-chunk in one afternoon to bake a pie and actually eat it, s l o w l y. There's nothing like warm pie to give you strength to get back out there and do what you gotta do!

ease: 4/5.
prep time: 1 hour.
cooking time: 1 hour.
total: 2hours.

taste: 3/5. Middle of the road.

This pie was nice; it satisfied a sweet craving but didn't really offer much more than that. It did however, reignite my search for a great pie.

would I make it again: No - there are more pies to try!



  1. Wonderful! That rustic looking pie must be divine.



  2. You're right, there is nothing like warm pie and devouring it slowly. Sorry to hear the pie was middle of the road, it looks delicious though. I highly recommend Dorie Greenspan's apple pie if you are looking for a great pie.

  3. I feel the same way about pie. It's something to indulge in and take your time over. And there are many more to try!

    Speaking of taking your time over things, I've been pretty rubbish at reading blogs lately! Doh. It's because I suck and have been on the go since I returned from my travels. But hi! Food is looking gorgeous =)

  4. Keep us appraised of the great pie search. I'm such a pastry fan, I fear that I could live of pastry if given the opportunity. Today I will be enjoying a homemade apple turnover, but then I plan on being good - well till next weekend!

  5. More pies to try, my are there ever! I am overwhelmed with the prospect. Excited, but overwhelmed nonetheless. This pie looks divine, though. Although I think that's just perhaps your ability to make anything look divine.

  6. I would never have been able to pull this off! All know of my adverse fear to baking :)

  7. i admire your willingness to try it once and leave it behind! the crumble topping seems like it might be worth carrying around and trying atop a different filling, yes? :)

  8. Glad you're excited to try more pies to find a knock-out. I love the photograph - such gorgeous color!
