Breakfast of champions

My favorite part of Thanksgiving?  That would be eating leftover pie for breakfast the next day.  I did that this morning.  This piece is actually my dessert.  Yes, pie twice in one day.  That's why I only make pie a couple times a year.  Since my husband isn't that big a pie person, I get to eat most of it.  I can't afford to do that too often. =)

I was talking with someone the other day about baking, and she asked my what my specialty is.  I thought about it for a minute, and told her that I don't really have one.  That's true in the sense that I like to make lots of different baked goods, and I'm good at a lot of them.  But if I had to pick a favorite, it would be pastry--anything that ends up buttery and flaky.  I'm actually getting pretty good at making my own puff pastry and croissant dough.  Fortunately, my other favorite is yeast bread, and most of the ones I make are lean enough to offset all the butter.  I'll have to put some of those on the baking agenda for this weekend, I think.  But for now, I'm going to go finish my dessert.


  1. mmm, pie. i just finished the tiny Whole Foods pumpkin pie today too. We're saving the rest of the marionberry one for T, and TJ ate his cherry one. The one that remains is the weird apple pie which doesn't have big slices of apple. It has a solid chunk of filling with tiny little apple slivers. So odd.

  2. Now I wish I'd made pie! *wants*

  3. We are so alike in our dessert preferences Di: anti-custard and pro buttery and flaky! I made a pie for Thanksgiving but gave the leftovers away because I knew I'd eat it for breakfast until it was gone...
