TWD: rewind - berry pie

In the interest of getting back on track (and because bar studying/anxiety is frying my nerves), I'm posting last week's this week, and starting next week, I'll actually post the right recipe on the right day - no more awful Wednesday posts, no more rewind posts... I swear. That said, I also have to say that I may be a hit-or-miss with blogging in general, as well as TWD, until at least mid-August, when I'm finished with the bar and have finished moving. But on to happier things...

Mixed Berry Tart!
I liked this recipe. It was a real hit, and it came together very easily. I really wanted to use fresh berries, but I just couldn't justify the cost of berries at the local supermarket. Instead, I went with frozen, and honestly, I couldn't tell any real difference. I imagine that freshly picked berries would be amazing in it though... mmm.
I paired it with some Bryers vanilla bean ice cream, and it was a great combination. The real star of the dish was the topping though. As people were heading out at the end of the night, they were picking 'one last bit' of the topping off. I think that's a great sign!

This was a really great dessert and I'm glad you got a chance to try it. Good luck with the bar and moving!

Ben & Pam - Thanks!

I've been such a bad TWD'er lately!

Lovely! Best wishes for your studying for the bar!

I think good-quality frozen berries are almost as good as fresh in a cooked dessert, and actually a whole lot better than berries than had to be picked barely ripe and trucked in.
