What better way to get the Forkable Pie Fest started then with my Blueberry and Apricot Pie, I mentioned yesterday. A pie in a cast iron skillet is always a crowd pleaser, giving the impression of being cooked on the campfire with good back country spirit. Top it with a lattice crust and you're pie's as unstoppable as bluegrass fiddler powered by corn whiskey.
A lush deep blueberry flavor paired with the sweet sumptuous taste of apricots and nectarines, lightened with a crisp splash of fresh lemon zest and underscored with the subtle rich flavors of the browned butter and amaretto. Serving this pie with fresh whipped cream or ice cream will bring smiles to everyone's faces. Click here for the full recipe and here for my Instructable.
Although I was totally working a gimmick to get attention in the Instructable Pie Contest, I can still totally vouch for the pie inside. I ate it and it was awesome! But don't take my word for it. Here was Eric's reaction.
It's impossible not to be overcome with a violent and expressive sense of VICTORY when eating this pie. Its skilletastic!
