Fancy pie crust: A"saskatoon berry" pie, before baking. Saskatoons are unique to the prairies, often called "service berries". They are like large currents, smaller than blueberries and, I think, much tastier than blueberries. I am the pie-baker in my family and besides making three berry pies I also made two pumpkin pies, in celebration of Thanksgiving - Oct, 2014. All of the pies I bake are decorated - the pumpkin pies have a celestial theme - one with the sun, one with the moon design.
Become a Pastry Rock Star With This Herringbone Lattice Pie
Remember, herringbone is more than a pretty face. It doubles the amount of top crust involved in a traditional lattice, which means you've got twice as much crispy, flaky pastry in every bite. Not to mention lifetime bragging rights!
