Pie Bird #2

Here is my second attempt at getting my black bird to sing. Unfortunately, it was another failure. 

I made another apple pie and used my favorite crust recipe. I cut a hole in the crust before I layed it on the top of the filled pie plate where the bird was already in place. I sealed the crust to the bird with a little milk and couldn't resist making my pie nostalgic. It took a long time to cut and weave all those strips for the nest!! Then I brushed on some milk and sprinkled sugar over all. In the pie goes into the oven for a very long stay.

After an hour of waiting for the bird to sing, I had a dark pie and a mushy filling.  It still tasted good though! All was not lost. I somehow think I'll be making plenty of apple pies with each a new opportunity to hear the bird sing.


  1. You always make such fabulously yummy things Quenta. I'm looking forward to reading your blog!

    Best wishes,

  2. Even if it was mushy on the inside, it looks super yummy on the outside!
