OOOOOOOOH! So yesterday I told you I was considering making a pie, and you know what? I've only gone and done it!
Took some time, but t'was worth it of course. And incase you didn't see the last blog, the pie I made wasn't just any old pie, t'was an Asian Pear pie! 'cause I'm so oriental.
Now I was a little skeptical, 'cause I don't like Asian Pears TOO much, but I went ahead anyway.
Right, so I'm not gonna sit here and give you the recipe and how I made it (we all know I googled that shit, "Asian Pear Pie" and it should be the first one) but I will give you my progress pictures!
So as you can see this is the pie mixture, this isn't really too fancy, just brown/normal sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla (with the pears of course) later I realised I needed to add some butter to get the mix really gooey and nice (in this it was just runny around the bottom, which sucked of course)
Put this stuff in the oven for about 8-9 minutes to make it niiiiiiiice and pastey (like this-V)
Righto so as you can see here this stuff is a pretty snazzy paste-like sauce allllllll over those pears. It smells absolutely delicious I have to say, and of course this is inside the pie shell here (I have a pic of the shell itself but it's obviously boring enough to just post a picture of a pie shell)
So basically all I did after that was put a top on it, sprinkled some cinnamon and brown sugaron the top, and plopped it in the oven for about 35-40 minutes.THIS is how it came out!
I KNOW I KNOW, I really messed up on the top by A. putting too much cinnamon on it and B. not getting it even enough :(
I only had a really small surface to roll out the pastry QQ and as for the cinnamon, it said a sprinkle WHICH I DID, but it really muffed up and put a msssive clump in one place.
So this was the inside, and I can say it tasted PRETTY DAMN NICE.
The paste stuff is amazingly tasty, and even though I'm not too keen on the pears it still tasted kinda good! Don't get me started on the pie crust though, THAT was amaaaaaazing.
So yeah, I rock and stuff. Had more shit to put in this blog but it's massive anyway! Oh amd just for the record, I STILL HAVE LOADS OF PIE LEFT 'CAUSE YYYYYYYYEAH!
Should probably put some ice-cream or something with it, but it's still really good anyway.
CHEERS TO MYSELF FOR MAKING MY FIRST EVAR PIE.
ps I wanted to get some pomegranett to try but it's £1.50 each and they're small as, and the only ONE left in the shop was all beaten up and stuff, so not today!
