With fresh berries on hand, I obviously needed to make a pie. I followed a recipe that I’ve successfully used many times before, but I managed to make several errors. Pies always look deceptively simple, but it’s a tough dessert to master. My first batch of pie dough turned out sticky and unusable so I had to throw it out and start over. Then just when I thought the final product turned out beautifully, the filling ended up being too runny. I suppose they can’t all be winners, but at least it still tasted good – especially with a big scoop of ice cream on top.
