|Blueberry-Peach Pie ala Baking with Julia|
I didn't enjoy this recipe. Perhaps I did some mis-measuring on the crust as I've read other blogs that loved it. It was too short for me and difficult to work with, almost a shortbread. And why the cake pan?
The filling was fussy. Why make a simple syrup to soak the berries? I've made tons of pies with peaches or nectarines and blueberries, add a little lemon and put the fruit in the crust, mix sugar and flour, and top it with another crust. Easy.
We love pie and this was a good one if not a pretty one but I can make one just as good and twice as easy. In the future I'll be more discriminating in following the recipes. I know many of the other TwD cooks use their experience and knowledge and often stray from the recipe and I'm going to do the same.
Guess I'm just a slow learner:) Our hosts for this recipe were Lizzy and Hilary and they both had great success with the recipe which they give on their blogs! See what all the other Tuesday with Dorie bakers thought of the recipe.
