Good morning and Happy Monday! Does anyone else desperately want another cup of coffee?
How awesome was this beautiful weekend in Seattle? Days like Saturday remind me why I love living here. Too bad today is back to our cloudy and cool usual, but I have a little something I think might perk you up. It certainly made my Monday morning. How cheery is this?
I talked to my mom on Sunday morning, and she gave me the little kick I needed to actually find a recipe for Shaker Lemon Pie* and give it a try. It was a little dark and messy in my kitchen last night, so there aren’t any progress photos, but let me tell you: it was a very pretty process! I’m realizing that yellow has been growing on me lately, somewhat sneakily. This pie is almost as pretty to look at as it was to eat.
To help bring a little sunshine into your spring, I’m making Shaker Lemon Pie this week! This is a very old-school pie, and I’m sticking to the classic recipe with it. It has a much more complex and strong flavor than something like a lemon meringue. It’s a pie for a grown-up palate. It’s another one whose filling I wanted to just eat, and not even bother baking up. I hope you’ll love it as much as I do!
*This is what I was thinking of in my post about the Amish. And the pictures here don’t do it justice. It is gorgeous!
