A little pickle-y preview of things to come…we’ll see how these turn out in a week!
Picking up where we left off with Cherry Pie: Part 1, this recipe from The Complete Book of Pastry goes through the steps to make a beautiful lattice crust cherry pie like the one pictured above. You could make it for friends for a 4th of July BBQ, like I did! Or just make it for yourself because you deserve your very own personal cherry pie.
In introducing this recipe, Bernard Clayton, Jr. sweetly describes a cherry pie is so special to him: “It was the first pastry my bride made, served and received with love.” If that doesn’t warm your heart then you’re probably dead on the inside, and also I don’t think you’d like this cookbook.
