The mighty crustholder...


It's now less than two weeks until Christmas and with the requisite yuletide baking well and truly underway, I'm afraid you'll see little else on offer from the TPB kitchen this month. But the weather today was shabby, and what with a gift I'd been wanting to use for some time and the recent arrival of mum's first apricots at my door, there seemed nothing else for it but pie.





Admittedly the use of a pie bird with such a delicate soft crust pastry was probably unnecessary, and I may have gone slightly overboard in covering the little chap up, but my decision to use my Falcon enamel rather than something more appropriately sized did not detract from the fact that it was still absolutely delicious. Mmmmm, pie...




"...Oh wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?..."
