Christmas Pies

Clockwise from top:  Marlborough, Apple-Cheddar, Pumpkin Mince (with NH decoration), Chocolate Pecan, and Tourtiere, uncooked.

I am surfeited with eating scraps of crust, something I thought I would never say.

Excellent work. Tourtiere is on my list for later in the 12 days.

It is possible, but difficult, to surfeit on scraps. I was little at the time.

I'm somehow reminded of the old Carlsburg beer ad that was reminiscent of illustrations on a printed tea-towel: "Birds of Britian"

(Here's an example of the sort of printed tea towels that one would receive as a Christmas gift from the maiden aunt who was a devotee of the RSPB:

I love that “turkey” (no native British bird) is identified by the pseudo-Latin name “Xmas dinnerus.” The Road Runner and Coyote would be proud.

I am impressed! Those all look and sound delicious.

Even with eight people, there's a lot left.

Tea towels... I seem to recall one that had bird splats on it. I could be wrong, I've been wrong before, and undoubtedly will be again, but that does stick in my mind...

Crust is almost the whole point. The siren call of many kinds of dessert is often lost on me, but pie is nearly irresistible. I approve of pies with both top and bottom crust. Quiche, chicken pot pie, fruit pie, all wonderful, and yours look scrumptious.
