Last week Wednesday I decided I needed to bake a pie to use up the many cherries I had purchased on sale. So I found a guideline online for cherry pie filling from scratch, and whipped up a pie crust using this recipe from Clearly Delicious. The pie filling was actually based off one of hers, too. Then that morning a friend shared a photo of a pie from some Facebook page that had the top pie crust cut to be the Hydra logo...and I knew that's what I was going to do.
|Those cherries though...mmm.|
|I threw in some fresh basil for added flavour.|
Of course, I also had purchased a few pints of blueberries on sale to make a blueberry pie for my husband's birthday the next day, because cherries aren't his thing. (We each had a pie to ourselves, see how nice I am?) So after a discussion with my friend Jaimie (who blogs over at JaimieRamsey.com), I knew that the top crust for the blueberry pie was going to be the Imperial logo.
|These blueberries were perfect...|
|Blueberry pie filling goodness.|
|I cut this freehand.|
|It didn't transfer very well.|
|A bit broken, but (as a friend pointed out) so is the Empire!|
