Pie Making Adventures
« on: November 26, 2011, 10:40:20 pm »
Listen, I know we have food related threads. This is a thing I am aware of, collectively, along with all of you. I appreciate their noble existence and respect their topical domain. This goes beyond that, though. This is not merely about the eventual heart attacks we will give ourselves someday with our experimental cookery. This is for a more specific confectionery purpose. This is for pie.

I want to make pie.
At my family's thanksgiving dinner, my dad homemade chocolate pecan pie for about the third year in a row. For the third year in a row, it was delicious and lasted all too short a time in my mouth. The chocolate pie filling was soft and warm with a tender texture that was complimented by the solid pecans on top and every bite was like tongue nirvana I am not even exaggerating.
And then it was over, and all the pie was gone.
I can't wait another year for this, and I can't just stick with one kind of pie. I need to explore the boundaries of pie, and I want to document this (pictures, definitely. Possibly video as well).
I've started going on the treadmill more often, and I'm only going to be making them occasionally, so I'm going to try being careful about my weight throughout all this, but still...pie...I've gotta make this happen.

I imagine I am not alone in this, so believe me, this adventure does not have to be a solo event. If you, too want to go on this pie adventure as well, make pies, post updates, recipes, and suggestions, etc..., you are perfectly welcome to. In fact, I encourage it.

I will try to keep you all updated.
(I'm probably going to start off with Key Lime, because I don't believe I've ever had it, and it sounds delicious.)


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Pie?

I know how to make pies. I've got a great Key Lime recipe. Though it's fairly difficult.

I am intrigued, though this being my first time ever making a pie, a bit intimidated. You're welcome to post the recipe though!
Looking at my schedule, I may actually have to wait until after finals to officially start attempting the first pie, but in the meantime I can still prepare...

I made a steak and mushroom pie for dinner today. Turned out pretty well.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Cheesecake is surprisingly difficult to get right.

Sounds close enough to the perfect Key Lime Pie.

Alright, as of yesterday, the first pie (Key Lime) is done:

I went with a pretty simple recipe, but it actually went over really well.

My family was supportive of the whole endeavor and asked for seconds rather quickly after finishing their first slices.

Here's a picture of the finished product (taken by my brother):


In any case, I definitely think I'm going to be doing this again at some point.

Good job, Mr. Pie Man!
Probably not a Goat, either.

Wow that is one good looking pie!
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

My god. American eggs are bleached white and American milk is far too... Yellow.

Duly noted.
No way dude, you're trolling me.
