I love how this cooking group keeps you on a schedule to try new recipes! Instead of once in a while finding time to tackle something new, now I plan for it…SO fun! It has been fun sharing this journey with my family, friends, and the new group of blogging friends. 🙂
Somehow I have managed all these years baking and cooking without a food processor but TWD was a good excuse to buy one…and it was exciting to use it for the first time.
I was surprised how easily the dough came together, and compared to the last few recipes, it was not sticky at all. I had no problem rolling it out and fitting it to the pie pan. This might be my first crust. I can’t remember ever making a pie so I felt pretty accomplished!
So now I needed to fill my crust. I decided once again to follow the recipe the first time to see what the original would be like and from there decide if I would tweak it the next time. I have never cooked with Ricotta, Romano, or Prosciutto so this was a new one for me and my family.
Now for the fun part…looking back I wish I had woven the lattice but I didn’t think of it while I was constructing the top. I also had looked at a couple of stores for a ruffle-edged pastry wheel but no luck…so just straight lattices for me.
Now for the final verdict…if you have read any of my previous posts you know that even before I started this TWD I have always asked my family…”Soooo what do you guys think…is it a keeper?” because who wants to waste time cooking something that is not loved…well…this was surprising, the two in my family that eat..anything…didn’t care for it…they thought the filling was ok, but tasted weird with the sweet crust. My husband and son not liking something, rarely happens in my house so I would say this was a fun one to make since I hadn’t tried many of the skills but I think it is safe to say we won’t be repeating this recipe…this one is NOT a keeper for our family….but I have to say, I found others to finish off the pie and they really enjoyed it. 🙂
