Friday is PIE DAY!

Today's pie post is a little late coming. I sliced the piece for the photos, then called my neighbor over to share the deliciousness. We ended up hanging out in the yard, chatting and eating pie. Then I got distracted decorating my new bathroom. Yes, details will be coming about that. But, for now, I'm sure all you care about is the pie of the day. It's a summer classic, so I don't feel the need to ramble on with any long lead-ups or explanations. Let's just get on with it, shall we?

*to make stars for decorating each slice, cut out star shapes from a bit of extra dough. brush them with a bit of whipped egg white, sprinkle them with sugar, then pop them into the oven for the last 10 minutes of your pie baking time. fun and festive!*
White whipped cream and a few fresh red raspberries piled on top of the blueberries create a classic color combo fit for any celebration this weekend. Happy, happy 4th of July to you all.
