This is not my pie. I actually didn't take a picture of my pie - it was that bad. A friend of mine loves cherry pie and I made him one and one for his family today. I went against my better judgement and used a new recipe - one that was suppose to be a contest winner. I usually use the same recipe for crust that I got from Adele that everyone loves but for some reason I was into trying something new. The first pie I made exactly as the recipe required and I used butter. The crust dough was sticky and extremely hard to work with which made for an ugly pie and who knows how it tasted. The second pie I decided to use Crisco (which is what I normally use) and it was even worse! This pie tops the ugliest pie contest. It wouldn't even brown and the berries came through the top and made a complete mess. I was so embarrassed to deliver the pies but told them I would make another one using my own recipe. I told his kids to eat the Crisco one scooped on top of ice cream. The filling seemed to be OK. I will have to find out today if they actually ate the pie. Maybe I am just out of practice. I haven't made a pie in months. I guess I better redeem myself soon!
