My Pursuit Thus Far

Posted by Chrisi

This post is continuously updated.
I began my pursuit for pie perfection in June 2009. The initial goal was to make the perfect crust. I approached this aim very analytically with the idea that my perfect pie crust would (naturally) lead to a lucrative pie shoppe. After the Rainier Cherry Pie (see #3 below) and a few back-of-the-envelope calculations, I realized that unless I baked 17.8 pies per day, 365 days a year, I better keep my day job. So here we are... the pursuit of pie perfection purely for personal pleasure. I will record on Naughty Pies the successes and failures of my pie-making experiences and see if my pie pursuit is a "Pie in the Sky" pipe dream.
