more pie  
Well, more like tarts this time.  I didn't bother topping them.  But tart pastry is a whole different animal from pie pastry, so I don't know if I can call them tarts after all.  Since open-faced pies sounds stupid, I'll go ahead and call 'em like I see 'em.

Here's the deal:  I had leftover apple pie ingredients from last week's pie, and leftover topping from both pies, so I just combined the two and ended up with a mass of spicy apple sludge.  And these days it seems like I never have fewer than a cup and a half of random berries in the fridge, gamely turning into wee mummified fruityheads.

So I added my remaining apple to the apple sludge and put some even more interesting spices in it, and plopped the stuff into a cheap pie crust.  And I placed the berries VERY nicely into the other pie crust (it's way cute) and then drenched them in a buttery vanilla-y sugary cream sauce.

They both smell AWESOME.  I'll post pr0n pics of them later and let you guys know if I die in the tasting.  Preliminary names:  buttery berry tart and apple dingbat tart.  Maybe someday I'll actually graduate to making formal tarts out of them.

That sounds amazing! You're like a culinary Dr. Frankenstein. :)

so, do you consider the meringue in lemon meringue or key lime pie to be the "topping"? And hm, I guess pecan pie, the pecans are the topping?

the pietart things sound tasty!

I use my homemade pie dough in tarts (usually the savory type, I like to roast veggies and put them in a tart with a bit of cheese).

the name "apple dingbat" is pretty awesome. I'd totally order that just to know wtf? :)
