She's my Cherry Pie

My dad was in a bit of an accident this weekend. Nothing too serious, but he did break some ribs and was in a lot of pain. Knowing that Cherry Pie is his weakness (despite my general dislike for it), I decided to practice my baking skills and make him one to cheer him up.

The filling I used from a can, but the crust I made from scratch for the first time in my life. Although completing a successful pie crust isn't exactly something to write home about, having it turn out so well gave me the confidence to push my baking boundaries even more. I love Nick Malgieri's book Bake so much I decided to cook everything in the book (that doesn't involve poached pears or walnuts) and can't wait to become a better baker.

(Oh - and my dad loved the pie. He said he it made him feel a little better already.)
