No, not Pi Day. That’s not until March. This is actual Pie Day.
Does you know wear you’re mittens are?
I no wear mine are…. (And Know. I don’t knead no spell-check…)
We got the idea for this pie from the wonderful article “Home for the Holidays” by Roberta Corradin published in SAVEUR Magazine #134. The recipe that she and her mother use for their pie is here: Torta di Sant’Antonio (Sant’Antonio Apple Tart).
We only loosely followed the recipe by reducing some Sangiovese and then tossing it into the sliced apples before adding them to a cheddar cheese pie crust. The crust was just regular pastry with some grated cheddar cheese thrown in.
I must say, it was pretty spectacular pie. We really should make it again.
Because we made the pie pictured here last October (I meant to post about it earlier. I really did).
Now it’s long gone. Oh oh. Here it is Pie Day. We don’t have any pie right now though!
Will you bring some to me please? I have my mittens on.
Hay!! Is anyone out they’re? Yes! Yew! I’m talking two ewe!
