So, I currently have a few friends who are into no-sugar cleanses. Personally, I think it’s a sensible idea, but it’s become a little too trendy for my tastes and I’ve been busy stockpiling my organic, evaporated cane juice for an important reason: recipe testing for the newest in-progress Post Punk Kitchen cookbook has begun! I’m pretty much resurrecting The Piehole’s delivery service for all my local friends and humming the pie song from Waitress on a creepy, regular basis while wearing my cuter aprons.
I’ve warmed my feet in the syrup waters with two projects so far:
First up, Strawberry Handpies in Puffy Pie Dough
Each handpie is topped with coarse sugar and heart-shaped slits for my friend Millie’s Heartwarming party. Regardless of oozing some of the filling, they’re so freaking cute!!! And they rode a bus!!
Secondly, Sweet Potato Brazil Nut Crunch Pie in a Single Pastry Crust
This was the first pie I’ve sliced and hand-delivered to friends. Go, go magic pie and crust making!
Apple Cashew Creme Crumb is up next!
