'Friday Pie Day' has had to be moved forward to today in honour of 'Pi Day'. I have very nearly missed it too! You are supposed to celebrate this official holiday with pie eating and discussing 'Pi'. I cannot find anyone interested so I have had to tell you about it instead. Then I have let Wikipedia do the explaining because quite frankly I never understood 'Pi' at school, I switched off altogether. The only Pi I liked in school was in the canteen, a bit of 'Cheese and Potato Pie with Chips and Gravy' in the good old days before health fads when nobody cared if kids ate chips and gravy every day! Happy Days.
My Pi Day Pie is . . . . as promised. . . drum roll please. . . my first ever. . .
|Blueberry Pie 'Tah da!'|
I used shortcrust Pastry
300g of blueberries covered with water and bought to the boil.
I added 50g of sugar and a paste made with 25g of Corn flour and water.
This made a thick and quick pie filling. I only cooked the blueberries for about three minutes. Then you bake your Pie for as long as you can wait, or until it is golden.
Then you have to serve it with about a pint of cream!
|Like this! If you eat it in the dark on your own the calories do not count, because nobody knows you have had it!|
Go eat pie!
