here's my friend the local peach and rainier cherry crumb pie riding the #9 in se portland.
it was sunny so it wore this protective layer. just for a while. it liked the pink.
in its powdered sugar glory, before being eaten at a vegan potluck:
and the evolution - chopped peaches and pitted rainier cherries. I added the peaches because rainier isn't typically a stand alone pie filling cherry.
crumb topped and pre-baked. the pie was totally homemade, holla. the crust is from Veganomicon.
Next time I'd go with a more traditional lattice crust, since the filling was more sweet than tart, somewhat surprisingly.
and baked, before the dusting of the powdered sugar.
bonus farmer's market haul from Saturday, which makes me warm inside:
I went to the PSU market and picked up the following for:
box of peaches $3
hot pepper 75 cents
sweet corn 2 for $1
fava beans $1 a bag (not totally filled pods..a sale!)
fresh basil $1
zucchini 50 cents
and a handful of blackberries picked on the welcome home...
and since the oven was warm post pie baking, I roasted some garlic.
