Pie Party, Week #5, Chocolate Chip Pie
On pie day week#5 the kids had off from school for a post-Halloween, All Saints Day break. Pie Girl decided to let her brothers partake in the pie making today which led to more messes, more noise, and lots more joy! I was thrilled to watch them interact in a mostly loving way towards the shared goal of batter tasting and pie pride. And I have decided two things, there is nothing better than enjoying batter together on a crisp autumn day (don't judge on the raw egg thing, I think it bolsters ones immune system) and that a few dropped eggs on the kitchen flour gives it a lovely shine.
Chocolate Chip Pie
We found a recipe online but changed it a bit. We used whole wheat flour and organic sugar instead and we omitted the nuts. Also, we did used a deep dish pie pan which left us with a lot more crust than filling. The pie was not as fluffy as it would have been had we used all-purpose flour but it did
seem healthier, especially when having a second slice.
