Sweet as Pie
Hmm, seems like fate... I was just finishing up some leftover home made berry pie and channeling Ruth Ann, while sneaking in some blog time and I saw her give-away! Go see what she's been up to at Sugar Pie Farmhouse . Her very own e-book adorably titled Watermelon and Fireflies is like a cute GooseBerry book for summer. I've often found a good shot of motivation to cook n clean over there... She makes it sound so noble and fun! ;-P Seriously, I do appreciate how she keeps her focus on serving family and The Lord front n center and includes sweet stories and nostalgic pics. And her "Oh, Honey!" s always remind me of my dear Grandma Betty who said the same thing! <3
BTW - my pie was super easy to make - just 5 cups mixed berries, gently folded with 1/2 cup sugar mixed w/2T cornstarch, and a premade crust (yeah, I know, but it's soooo nice to have one waiting in the freezer for unplanned berry surplus & little hands eager to "help"). For extra sparkle n crunch I brush milk n sprinkle sugar on top - an Aunt Ruthie tip!
Here's a recipe from Allrecipes.com w/the details. (my Macs not doing links these days!)
