You know exactly how most pies are supposed to taste. It's a universal thing. I can make a great soup or some yummy chicken and when you taste it you say, "wow, that's good chicken!" but when you make a great a pie, it tastes exactly as it should and that's so rewarding! It's like all the pie standards have been met and you were successful. And last night, my friends, I was successful.
I recommend making one. Whatever your favorite is. Or surprise your favorite person with their favorite pie. Don't be daunted by pies...find a recipe that calls to you and get to baking. DO it, you'll feel that satisfaction and reward of making a delicious tasting treat. Then call me in the morning so I can come have some for breakfast!
please note this is not a picture of my lemon meringue pie. but damn, I'd be good if it was!
