Sick of Pi/Pie yet?
Yeah, me too.
So I made cookies! Well, Pie Cookies. As a foodie, I feel I should celebrate big Foodie Holidays. If this isn’t one, just pretend it is, okay? Give me a little leeway.
I made these little Pies yesterday after my first Cookie Decorating Class. I just confiscated all of the left over icing and colored it to make these silly little cookies. I would love to be able to show you some pictures of the class…but guess who forgot to take any?
And then guess who remembered to take some, and staged a photo op with a couple of the students, and then those pictures were blurry?
So, you will just have to take my word for it – my students were masters, even if ONE of them would use some questionable techniques with her icing while my back was turned…almost as if my husband were there, except not quite that obnoxious. (Just kidding A – you were great!) I really was impressed with how quickly they embraced the concepts of striping, dragging, filling – they were adventurous and I loved it! I only hope they feel like they learned a little something. So, class, if any of you are still reading my blog – let me know? Is there something you wish you would have learned that I didn’t teach you? Any advice you can offer, since you were my first class? I’d love to know!
Anyway, back to the pie cookies. I just used a round cookie cutter for the full pies, and a knife for the slices. I decided to make a full latticed cherry pie, as well as one with a missing slice, and then, of course, the slice itself. (Yes, those are RedHots!) I also made a slice of Key Lime Pie with meringue, and finally, a blackberry pie with a missing slice.
And there you have it. A Pi Day full of cookies. Or Pie. Or whatever.
