Remember the Holiday Bake-Along over at The Armchair Chef? Well, Tink’s at it again. She’s putting together a collection of pie and cake recipes from needlework designers and retailers.
Two cakes immediately come to mind: Wacky Cake and Blueberry Buckle. Those are about the only cakes I make. Although there is an apple cake that a friend makes that is de-yummy-licious. I have the recipe somewhere.
Pies. I went through a pie phase when we were first caretaking, probably because we had a lot of frozen fruit, but I rarely make pie these days. Unless you include dinner pies: quiche or chicken potpie. Mike will make a pumpkin pie for a holiday, but I prefer my pumpkin in bread.
When I make pie crust, I make extra, sometimes a whole separate crust. (Ah, the advantage of being a grown up!) I roll it out, spread butter on it, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on it, roll it up, and bake it. My mother called that a snickerdoodle, and as a kid I could never remember that name, so wound up calling it a doodley-roll. Snickerdoodles are now cookies, so the pie crust roll is now officially a Doodley-Roll.
Huh. I wonder if that counts as a pie recipe?
