The T-U-V of Pie For TDay
T is for Travel, Little Tasties, and Pie Tops
Pie is one of the things that TSA allows you to travel with. The 4 ounce rule will apply though so if your have a super runny cherry pie that didn’t set up because it needed more thickener, you may be having a pie party before you get through the security gate. Add a little extra thickener to a pie like that, especially if you are planning on traveling with it, and then allow it to cool completely so it can set up. Here’s the link to TSA’s website on the subject. I place the pie underneath the seat in front of me. It is my carry on.
Little Tasties are the sweet little cinnamon and sugar roll ups that are made from dough scraps. Yum!
P is for Pie Tops
They can be plain or fancy. It’s up to you. I like to use cookie cutters for dough decorations. Here are a few ideas. If you like, bake the dough decorations separately on a parchment lined sheet pan for 8-10 minutes at 425F. Let them cool, and then set them on top of a pumpkin pie. You’ll find links to some cookie cutters here.
U is for Universal
It seems that pie, in some form, is in just about all cultures on our planet. How many ways are there to say pie? Check them out here.
V is for Vanilla Sugar
A few years back, I shared with you How to make Vanilla Sugar and linked you to the jars and beans in the post. I make it to give as gifts and to have on hand for pies, pastries, and my morning coffee. It’s just the right time to make this now for gift-giving next month.
And tomorrow is X-Y-Z!
