Pie feels very nostalgic to me. It feels like home. Like love. It brings back all kinds of memories of my grandmother.
A homemade pie requires a certain amount of actual hands on work that really can’t be avoided. You can see that in a homemade pie. The imperfections in the crimping and parts of filling bubbling out after baked. All of those things that make each and every homemade pie look unique is perfection.
For our Americana Issue of VRAI Magazine I wanted to make a pie that feels very classically American. But I kept going back and forth between apple and cherry. So I decided to just go with both. It was definitely a good choice. Head on over to VRAI Magazine to get the recipe perfect for your 4th of July celebrations or any other summer gatherings!
