I have to admit to being totally afraid of pie. I attempted baking a few when I first started baking and, well, the shells were almost always a disaster. So I ran away from pies.
So when this month's Daring Bakers Challenge was all about pie, I was actually excited. It was time to see how far I'd come now that I have a lot more kitchen hours under my belt.
I ended up taking on three. The first one is the one that Cam and I both wanted to try. It's a pâte sablée filled with a salted caramel layer beneath a dark chocolate mousse. I stenciled some icing sugar over the top to make it a little more interesting.
It was so delicious, and totally restored my faith in my ability to make pies.
The next two will be on the way soon. Meantime, you can get the recipe for this over at the blog: [link]
