THE PIE

I want to start by saying I wasn’t sure about this – I mean, curry and fennel in a pie? But, y’all, this pie is soooo good. The butterscotch is creamy and sweet and the crust has just a hint of a peppery flavor. I know it sounds weird but, you have to trust me on this, it’s worth the weird factor.

Next time I make this pie {and I will make it again}, I’ll make the crust a little thinner. I made it too thick, which sent a chunk of the crust flying through the air when The Hubs tried to cut it. It was pretty funny and messy.

On a related note: shout out to The Hubs for buying me a food processor so that I could make the crust. He doesn’t always understand my little projects, but he does support them.

I ate my pie with whipped cream, I highly recommend. I didn’t get a chance to make a cup of coffee because we were under a few tornado warnings, so I my focus was on making I didn’t ruin my pie between the baking and the shelter taking.

Other things I learned while making this pie:

  • pay attention to the caramel, it will get hard with a quickness, which means you’ll have to reheat it to soften it {I’m not sure if that influenced the taste, but it did make me panic}
  • sugar takes a long time to melt
  • you can substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla bean {or, at least, I did}
  • measure everything out ahead of time and read the directions three times before you start, not as you’re cooking
