My First Pie!

I've never made an entire pie,
crust and all,
from scratch,
until now.

Doesn't it look scrumptious?!


It was fun to do, though remind me next time to buy a cherry-pitter. Pitting all those with a chopstick was not exactly my new favorite hobby, and my dyed fingernail-beds feel the same way.

wow. you went all out with the crust on top. I think I've made a criss-cross crust like twice. I'm lazy. And I've made pie countless times!

I know it SEEMS like a cherry pitter is critical, but I've bought THREE and none are worth the trouble. More than half the time the pit is still in that sucker. I wish someone would invent a real pitter!!

I've got one from Sir la Table and it works very well. It helps to orient the cherry before pitting. I'd guess less than 5% fail rate.
