Not me. And it’s a good thing, because I don’t make pie crust. I probably could if I devoted a significant amount of effort, but it’s never been that important to me. I’m not a big pie eater. I’m not opposed to pie, I just generally prefer cake, cookies or ice cream when it comes to dessert.
But recently I saw a recipe on Chef Dennis’s blog for Peach Blueberry Custard Pie. The peaches are so good at the farmers’ market this summer, I was really tempted to try the pie. His recipe sounded really good. But I don’t make pies. And I don’t really like blueberries all that much either. But what if I made his pie without the crust and without the blueberries?
My non-blueberry peach custard non-pie was great, still hot from the oven. In spite of the potential disaster and the soggy struesel. As you can see, it's not as pretty as Chef Dennis's pie, but it tasted fine. I guess it’s hard to wreck a good recipe. Who needs a crust? Not me. Thanks for the inspiration, Chef Dennis.
