2nd Annual Pie Party

May 12, 2009

Last year, my friend Ed concocted the idea of doing a Pie picnic, where everyone brings a different (homemade) pie. We held the picnic at the Sherwood Gardens, up near the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. In the spring they have beds of tulips all over; it’s really pretty. I love spring flowers. We decided to make the picnic and annual thing, and this year we held it at Fort McHenry. It was a perfect day for a picnic–the sun was out, low humidity, mid-70s–awesome. I made two pies for the party, a mango strawberry pie, and an apple and sausage pie that I got off of Simply Recipes.

The mango pie turned our really great. I used all frozen fruit because I was lazy, (and honestly I think chopping up fresh mango and putting it in a pie is a waste of a mango…eat it straight up!). And it’s a super easy recipe.

The apple and sausage pie was a little more complicated, and it didn’t turn out as I expected. The cheese/egg topping looked way more egg-y than the picture from Simply Recipes, but taste wise it still came out great. I think it helped that I got all the ingredients for this pie from Trinacria Macaroni Works, my new favorite Italian Deli. Both my pies were gone by the end of the picnic. Yay!
