A Two-Pie Party

I made a couple of pies for my husband's annual lab party at our house over the weekend. The local food co-op had their first supply of rhubarb in last week, so I stocked up and used half to make a Rhubarb Custard Pie. For the recipe, click here. I baked this one in a 10-inch pie dish at 400 for 43 min. I was disappointed that the edges came out borderline burned, but it was a tasty pie overall. The second pie was definitely the more popular, a Chocolate Pudding Pie. I think everyone had a piece - there was only a sliver left after the party (which I ate the following day). For the Chocolate Pudding Pie recipe, click here. As usual, I used regular graham crackers instead of chocolate, arrowroot starch instead of cornstarch, and didn't add any of the espresso to the whipped cream. So, it looks like I'm still keeping up with the one-pie-a-month output, BUT I do have plans to make a Rhubarb Peach Pie at the end of this week for my husband's birthday.'s a surprise. I'm still deciding whether it will be a two-crust pie or have a crumb topping.

Current Pie Tally: 111
