Pie are squared

PARENT: What did you learn in school today?

KID: πr2.

PARENT: That's ridiculous! Pie are round, cornbread are squared!

The crust turned out nice and crispy. The apples are from one of our trees.

This is the first apple tart of the season. It's just sliced apples on a bed of ground hazelnuts. I glazed the apples with apricot preserves after the pie cooled. High-end cooks would have strained the preserves before glazing, but I left the apricot bits in.


  1. Gorgeous! Apple on a bed of ground hazelnuts sounds very gourmet (and very French!) Kiwi

  2. Parent needs to learn grammar. You are an artist.

  3. Another chef d’œuvre. No comparaison with the mushy American apple pie!

  4. I’d say you are, officially, a high-end cook. Straining is silly.

  5. You make the absolute best apple tart!!

  6. Hazelnuts and apple pie! Looks yummy!

  7. That apple tart looks so incredibly good!

  8. kiwi, often I use applesauce as a base, but ground nuts like hazelnuts and almonds are a nice change.

    mitch, her grammar didn't teach her nuttin'.

    chm, not all American apple pies are bad. My grandmother's was great! (and I'll bet everyone says that about their grandma's pies).

    judy, I could use apricot jam instead of preserves, there's no solid fruit in that. But we had the preserves on hand so that's what I used.

    bettyann, aww shucks...

    mary, it's pretty good, if I do say so myself.

    michael, and now it's all gone! :(


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
