1st day pie

when my sweet hubby went back to school we started a new tradition of having homemade pie on the first day of school. and in college that means 4 times a year, 1 for each quarter even summer!

i started with cherry pie because i didn't personally care for pie that much and it was soooo easy! i made semi-homemade cherry pie, pre-made crust with canned cherry pie filling and ta-da! and then over this past summer i became obsessed with/dedicated to the idea of making lovely little hand pies and i finally started making my own pie crust. i was kinda liking pie. so last quarter i really branched out and made a banana cream pie all from scratch, no pudding! it was really fun to make and quite tasty if i do say so myself!

and this quarter i got a wild idea to make a deep dish pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust. shaun likes it but i have to say that it's not my best work. the recipe will need some tweaking, the crust is too mushy and the filling could use some more spice. even with a less than perfect pie this time, i'm very grateful for this silly little tradition we've created. maybe we'll continue it for our kids someday.
