Pie revolution

Yesterday Kenny came up to hang out and have a belated birthday meal with us. At his request I made a fresh (uncooked- at least the fruit part!) blueberry pie. And it was SO GOOD! He and I immediately started brainstorming other summer fruit pies that could be made this way (3/4's of the fruit is left raw, 1/4 is cooked into a glaze, pie is open topped). Strawberry, peach, apricot, boysen/black/raspberry, sweet cherries...strawberries with a rhubarb glaze...yummmmm. I can't wait til our next open air bake sale so I can buy some other fruits to experiment with! Eating the tests will be so very very delicious...

Here's a pic of yesterday's pie after we'd eaten some of it :)

A very tiny picture. Blame Kenny's iphone!

Yum! Sounds delicious! Blueberry rhubarb is one of our newest favorite combos...

cool. aaron and i wanted something sweet and tasty a few weeks ago but didn't really have much. we did have some pineapple, though, so this was the delicious Aquarian Pineapple Pie that we came up with:

Your favorite crispy pie crust
Fresh Pineapple
Crushed Almonds
Shaved Coconut
Brown Sugar (just a tad, optional)

Bake for 10 minutes if you want, or just mix it and dump in the crust. We topped it with some yummy nonfat plain yogurt. It was AWESOME!
