Teeny Tiny Pies

Teeny Tiny Strawberry Pies

On Monday, one of the grad students in the lab where I work defended his dissertation. This is a really big deal (it's the final step in getting your PhD), and we always celebrate with a party afterwards. I volunteered to make a pie. I rolled out the dough* and prepared the filling, and when the blueberry pie was in the oven, I realized I still had some pie crust left over, so I made a couple of tiny strawberry pies in little pyrex bowls that my neighbor gave me.

The next morning, I ate one for breakfast. It was delicious. Then again, pie for breakfast always is.

*I used Martha Stewart's recipe. It was pretty good.


  1. I love it that you get so much pleasure from these tiny, beautiful, things and that you take the time to document them.

    Abby's mom (OMG! I couldn't remember if you changed from "y" to "ie" or vice versa and had to check the header of your blog to confirm how you spell it now. I think I my matter-energy-space-and-time locator just ran into some turbulence)

  2. These look so yummy!! Nothing better than a tiny pie, we make tiny pot pies every Thanksgiving with the leftovers, love it. And any day that starts with a little pie has to be good.

  3. yum! what could be better than a tiny pie!
