We've been talking a lot about pies this week, and we baked one yesterday that reminded us why a good pie is a mouthstopper of a treat. We can't take much credit for it, though; it involved very few ingredients and was mostly about the fruit. Sweet, jammy blackberries, fall apples, and spicy sugared ginger, loaded into one of those vodka pie crusts
. (Have we mentioned how much we like pie for breakfast?)
We'll share the recipe with you on Saturday as a weekend treat, but until then, here are a few more ideas for good cooking and good eating from The Kitchn. Good reading (and eating) from The Kitchn
