Pies! Cherry, Blueberry

Cherry Pie

These recipes come from the back of the book and are not really part of the restaurant tour but inspired by the abundance of cherries from my cherry tree this summer I tried them out. I was worried that the cherry pie filling was going to be too sweet as I prefer my pies quite light on sugar but in the end it was okay and the final product was, I would say, a quintessential American cherry pie.

Blueberry Pie

The blueberry pie ended up being a little wet and I would recommend lightly cooking in the sugar and cornstarch so that the cornstarch activates. Other than that a serviceable pie with a touch of nutmeg that gave it a slightly perfumed after taste.
