Welcome to Ambitious Kitchen.
I’m so happy you are right here. Personally i think like squealing just like a little piggy. Is that odd? Most likely. But it’s just me, you’ll receive utilized to it.
Hold on… I have to switch my Pandora station.
…Okay, Louie Armstrong was using. Who put that on? I write to Adele and Florence and the Machine, not really Louie Armstrong along with his large saxophone. It’s standard, Pandora’s gone crazy.
But apparently I’ve gone crazy too. Crazy in thoughts. Overpowering myself with what I wish to accomplish. Placing to do lists everywhere. Throwing clothing around my room. Missing episodes of Task Runway. You understand the big issues in life.
But really I had been considering how short existence is. Each chapter ends as soon as it starts. I literally blinked my eye and university flew by. That happens to everyone though right?
You get dropped off on campus from your parents then… you cry, you party, you rest in, you get an internship, you stability, you eat a whole lot of ramen, you gain 10 pounds, you learn from wrong, you stability again, you struggle, your home is, you laugh, you find like, you meet heartbreak, you discover meaning, you find your best close friends, you find you.
I swear that happens in a moment. A small small flash that is taken pig feet good for skin granted more often than not. I thought about could don’t want to consider anything for granted. Ever.
We used to hesitate of pies. Probably because I couldn’t have one cut. Pie was an foe. The very best tasting, most delightful soul soothing enemy.
I used to scream Screw you pie. Screw you to make me eat 3 slices!” I would often take it back again. I love pie. And I usually will.
Producing homemade pie crust is sort of an art. A scary art that will piss you off and haunt your dreams. Just kidding, it’s simply something you learn as you proceed. Kinda like life, you learn as you go.
So don’t choose the Pillsbury boring crust through the store. For heaven’s sake please don’t purchase it. I’m begging you.
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks of cold, unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
5 tablespoons ice water
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
3 medium ripe peaches, sliced
¾ glass granulated sugar
To help make the crust: In a large mixing dish stir collectively flour, sugar, and salt. Place in food processor chip or pastry blender and add the butter. Pulse many times until little peas type. Add lemon juice. Next add 2 tablespoons of glaciers water to start out. Work dough so that it forms a mass. Add staying ice water if required. You don’t want the dough as well sticky, but in a large ball.
Coat your hands in flour and split the dough into two round balls. Cover in plastic wrap and devote the fridge for approximately 30 minutes.
In another mixing bowl, stir collectively blueberries, cherries, peaches, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and flour until well mixed.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
After thirty minutes, remove one dough ball from fridge and move out utilizing a flour coated moving pin. You will have to work at this. You need the dough very thin and toned. Next properly place the rolled away dough right into a 9 inch pie pan. Fill up with your fruits mixture. Consider your staying dough ball from the fridge and move out. Cut out roughly 10, 1-inch thick whitening strips. Weave over fruit mixture, then trim off edges and make your pie crust pretty, if desired.
You can clean sides with melted butter or egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
Consider foil and wrap around the edges of the pie crust thus they don’t burn. Bake for thirty minutes. Remove foil and bake for yet another 30-40 a few minutes or until crust is normally golden dark brown to liking. Cool on a wire rack.

My husband looks at me funny when I yell on the pie, but that’s simply the type of romantic relationship that pie and I’ve. ; )
The pies look absolutely delicious!
