Put a smile on your face ten miles wide

Yeah, um, cherry pie.

I went off this recipe, more or less.  Added some blueberries and didn’t use all that sweetener.

Pretty easy to make.  I only used the sweetener for the cherry-blueberry chia jam.  If I do it again, I wouldn’t even bother with that.  Left the crust and topping without the added sweeteners.

I really liked the crust.  I used sticky coconut shavings to help it bind and give it whatever sweetness it needed beyond the listed ingredients.  Would probably make an OK cookie with a little adjustment.


That’s the jam.


This part would have been the pits, but I just did it with my hands and I felt powerful and majestic and juicy.


This is starting to feel like something good.  Swingin’ in the kitchen.


This part was easier than I expected.  I don’t know what I was fretting about.  Dryness, I suppose.  Nobody likes a dry slice of pie. I’ve seen what happened to good King Joffrey.


Crust is ready to go.  Just need to fill ‘er up.


Done and done.


Managed to hold form for a slice.


Backside view.  You knew it was coming.


I’m hoping the general lack of sugar will mean I can still fit into my hair band pants.  Sweet cherry pie, yeah.
