TWD: Blueberry Nectarine Pie

Rolling pie crust right before the deadline hits!! We had such a busy weekend. A rehearsal dinner on Friday and a wedding on Saturday. Congratulations Thomas & Molly. Squeezing in baking time just wasn't there so today was my last chance. Then again by baking today I can imagine myself baking with all the other members.  I kept putting it off until I started the pie crust at 5:00 p.m. Here it is at 9:00 and I am trying to get the post up.
 The crust went together easy enough but it sure seemed moist. The time was getting late so I only gave it maybe a half hour in the frig.  It was a little sticky.

 The color of the fruit was so pretty and smelled so good. I tried to thicken it up because so many fellow bakers sounded like there was a bit of a problem with them being juicy. It still ended up really juicy.

 Interesting using a cake pan. I didn't quite roll it out enough to drape over the edge.  I made rolls with the extra dough and tucked it around the edge.

It really doesn't matter what went into it, what really matters is that it tasted pretty darn good! A scoop of ice cream melting on top of the warm pie and I was happy.
Thanks to our hosts Hilary of Manchego’s Kitchen and Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake!


  1. It looks like it's not too runny, even warm - nice job!

  2. Such a yummy lovely slice of pie!
    Is it ice cream on the top?
