52 Pies in 2012

We rated Pie #16 Lemon Tart on a scale of 1 - 5:

Taste - 4.50
Crust - 3.75
Appearance - 4.0
Overall - 4.0

Even though we overbaked the crust and forgot to add 1/3 c. cream to the filling, we absolutely loved the taste of this tart. Can't wait to try it again!

52 Pies in 2012

We're back in business! Oven is fixed. . .life is good!

We rated Pie #15 French Apple Creme Pie on a scale of 1 - 5:

Taste - 3.75
Appearance - 4.25
Crust - 4.0
Overall - 4.0

Chuck really enjoyed this pie but Rita wasn't overly fond of the cream cheese/sour cream layer. Also, more tapioca flour should have been added to make it thicker.

Brief Hiatus

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are taking a brief blog/pie hiatus. Hopefully our oven will be repaired soon and we can resume our "52 Pies in 2012"!

We wish our family and friends a very Happy Easter!

Chuck, Rita and Quincy
