This day my purpose was all about PIES... Yummy goodness of all types stuffed between flakey buttery pastry crust. I really wanted chicken pie...with gravy. My favorite friend was having it...I should too ...right????? LOL
I was so excited to find in my recipe box my grandmothers recipe for pie crust. It was always there I'm sure, but did I ever make it...nooooo (smacks head). It was delicious!
Now I have to give credit to my mom, who still out piecrusts me anyday, but I have to practice sometime.
(Above...all baked and yummmy)
Authentic Homemade Moravian Chicken Pie
With or without Gravy??? Isn't the choice obvious?
Gravy of course :)
Now Pie day isn't complete without pie for dessert. For some reason my Rhubarb really decided to just keep on giving and giving....Remember the Rhubarb Meringue Pie?? Well this time I decided to use some of the delish pie crust and make a traditional rhubarb pie....Since I have a LARGE family...I had to add a couple of Cortland apples, so we have LOTs of filling ! So my new creation...Voila, Rhubarb Apple Pie
And yes it was soooo yummy!.. I was very excited, I have had a lot of trouble with pies in past ....this has become a LOOONG standing joke in my family. So I was acting like a total nerdy girl getting excited about a successful pie...hahahahaha
Now what to do what to do with the extra pie crust pastry???? This choice was EASY... Stickies! (also known as little canoes of sugar)...Now obviously since this isn't my own recipe, I cannot share the recipe, but they are a delightful treat...almost worth making the pastry just for them :)
Course you could also do the Cinnamon sugar crust tooo... you know where you spread the dough out and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Hope you enjoyed PIE DAY....I know I did!
