        Catherine,

        I don't mind sharing at all.

        BTW - That was an Apple-Raspberry Crisp Pie.

        Jim


        Almond Crumb Topping

        3/4 cup AP flour
        2/3 cup granulated sugar
        1/4 cup butter, melted
        1 tsp pure almond extract
        1/3 cup sliced almonds

        In a small bowl combine flour & sugar. Add butter & almond extract, stirring until incorporated.  Using your fingertips, finish working the butter into flour mixture, squeezing until a crumbly mixture forms.

        Stir in almonds.  Sprinkle topping over prepared pie, crisp or crumble.

                leethebard - There is no recipe! 

                Bobbi whipped that pie up last night from things we had around the house.  I'll try to get her to write it down so that we can have it again.

                    JRPfeff:

                    Two wholesome looking pies. It's the second one that seem to be appealing to me more right now, but alas no recipe. 
                    It would be nice if you do..thanks in advance.

                      We went to Solly's for lunch today.  I got the seat at the end of the counter with a great view of the griddle.  I envisioned the usual Roadfood suspects occupying this seat and the ones next to it.  (Sorry for the cellphone photos, but they beat having nothing.)



                      Oops.  That wouldn't work.  I was within arm's reach of the pie selection.  Not safe with those guys.



                      Today's pie choices included apple-blueberry, Door County Cherry, pumpkin, and our choice, Cinnamon Caramel Apple.  We got the last piece.



                      A wonderful pie filling in an excellent crust.  The pie is as a good a reason to eat at Solly's as a Solly's butter burger.

                          The Tomato-Fresh Ricotta Pie recipe is something like this.



                          1 partially baked pie shell (Bobbi used a 10-1/2" tart pan)

                          Filling:
                          1 recipe of homemade ricotta (see below)
                          2 eggs
                          1/2 container of Brennan's Mozzarella & Basil Cheese Spread (you can use a different cheese spread or 1 cup of shredded cheese)

                          Mix the eggs and cheese spread into the hot ricotta to melt and evenly distribute.

                          Toppings:
                          1 chopped garden fresh heirloom tomato (Bobbi used a Brandywine)
                          1/2 pound bacon, cooked until crisp then crumpled
                          Homemade croutons (Bobbi cooked these in the bacon grease )
                          Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

                          Assembly & Baking:
                          Assemble ingredients in pie shell and bake in a 350 degree oven until warmed through, about 30 minutes.

                          That's how she did it.  I'm sure your variation will be fabulous, too.

                          Homemade Ricotta Cheese

                          I quart whole milk
                          1 cup heavy cream
                          1 scant tsp coarse salt
                          2 TBSP white vinegar

                          Line a strainer with a double layer of dampened cheesecloth and set it over a large bowl.

                          Rinse a large saucepan with cold water (for easier cleanup).  Pour milk and cream into saucepan and add the salt. Bring to simmer over medium heat; a skin may form on the surface.  Continue to cook until you see bubbles all over the surface.

                          When the milk is simmering, turn off the heat and pour in the vinegar.  Leave it alone for about 1 minute, then stir slowly and gently.  The milk will start separating into curds and whey; you are looking for the whey to become clearish, which will take about 1 minute of gentle stirring.

                          Pour into strainer.  Lift the strainer out of the bowl and pour out the whey from the bowl.  Then set the strainer back in the bowl and let the cheese drain for 15 minutes. 

                          The ricotta is now ready to use or serve.

                                Cheating this week.  Pizza is pie, isn't it?



                                A look at the wood fired pizza oven at Pizzeria Piccola.  We started with their Flat Bread for an appetizer, pizza dough brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with rosemary and sea salt.



                                I had the Prosciutto and Mushroom Pizza and Bobbi had the Pancetta Pizza.  Unfortunately for her, they have dropped hard boiled eggs from their toppings - her favorite.



                                For dessert, we picked out some French pastries at Le Reve on the way back to the car. 



                                I think those little fruit tarts qualify as pie.



                                Stay tuned for more pie adventures.

                                      Having sampled several of Bobbi's delicious pies ( key lime!! ), I would tend to agree.

                                          ETR - That does look really good.  Too bad it fell short on taste. 

                                          And thanks for posting YOUR pie.  This wasn't meant to be a solo thread.
