It's Pi Day. That deems worthy of a sacrifice. A pie sacrifice.
Crust's first, as it takes some time to prep. Shaun had mentioned a vodka crust that did amazing things once baked. A quick search and I came across the recipe from Serious Eats for Cook's Illustrated Foolproof Pie Dough. 30 minutes later, I had four mini crusts and 1 big crust all ready and in my fridge to chill. After they'd chilled for about an hour, I took one out and spread it into one of the mini pans. The dough was extremely sticky, and nearly impossible to work with. After much stretching and pulling, I managed to get all the pans somewhat covered with the dough. It wasn't perfect, far from it, but it would do the trick.
Mini Mansions Tea Room Glazed Strawberry Pie recipe from CDKitchen, minus the glaze, was the inspiration for the Strawberry Pie. Novel Eat's Mini Apple Pie and Pete Bakes!'s Peach Pie provided the fillings for the other pies.
Overall the pies didn't turn out half bad. There are definitely things I would change with the crust, as well as making sure I had enough for a proper lattice for each pie.. but overall, t'was a good Pie day. Even though I woke up sick the next morning and began my week of suffering...
