Earlier this week I received a free vat of sliced pear-date-cranberry mixture. So I bought some supplementary pears and made a pie. This is the pie before I put on the top crust:
I had to roll out the top crust more than the bottom to stretch it over the mound of deliciousness pictured here. My pie was more hemispherical than discoid.
D. described it: "I have seen birthday cakes smaller than this pie."
R. commented: "In your family, do you just make a pie larger than the volume of the smallest person?"
Before this year, I thought that everyone made pies this convex. I have learned that it is just my family. Everyone else makes flat little baby pies.
This post's theme word: gormandizer, "a greedy person."
