While I’ve been really into making cakes lately, I could not forget about making something suitable for Pi(e) Day (3/14) in a few days!
I was originally very unsure of what I could make. This time of year is a little bit awkward as there’s not much fruit in season besides citrus. I’ve already made two variations of citrus pies (see here and here) so making a third seemed a bit over-the-top. I did think about making a tart but that didn’t feel like a real pie so I decided to save that idea for later. It wasn’t until my aunt (Hi Auntie Kathy!) sent me an idea for a Stargazy Pie that I realized that I was completely neglecting the realm of savory pies. In fact, this is the first all-savory pie I’ve made on this site. These hand pies were half sweet/savory so I don’t think they really count. While the Stargazy Pie seemed a bit too ambitious at this moment, Chicken Pot Pies are something that I have perfected over many, many iterations, but I had previously never formally written down my recipe.Read More
