Mmm… Cherry Pie

Maia and I made a cherry pie today to bring to friends who were having us over for dinner. It's my all-time favorite dessert. My mom used to make it for my birthday when I was a child so it brings back good memories.

Maia loves to cook, which to her means pouring ingredients into a bowl and mixing it with great vigor, either with her hands or with a spoon. It also means tasting almost everything, especially the butter!

For cherry pie, I use a combination of two recipes. My favorite is from The Pie and Pastry Bible, but while their crust is divine, it is way too complicated for my every day life with a toddler, so I use the crust from The Best Recipe.
