One Done Pie!

One Done Pie!

This pie is a bit on the unusual side.  We were at the farmer’s market two weekends ago and tried the gill feather rutabaga raw and they were very sweet. The farmer stand woman made a passing comment about how they are so sweet her friend made a pie with them and apples. So we did too.  Originally I was going to make it into a pot pie of sorts but with last weeks events plans changed and we were back to the “standard issue” sweet pie idea.

Not having made a pie in a long time I scoured the internet for a recipe that sounded easy and would accommodate rutabaga’s no problem! And I came across this recipe. The first thing we did was to slice the apples and the rutabagas up.

Step 2 was to mix all the insides together in a bowl:

Step 3 was to go all Mid-West style on it and place pads of butter all over the top:

Butter on Everything = Mid-West Style

Than we put the top on:

Into the over on 400 I think for about 60 minutes and then it was time to eat it:

And lets briefly talk about how I bought roll out Pillsbury crust for this adventure. Done.

The filling was really good. Not to liquidity not to solid.  The rutabagas added a slightly alsmot not as sweet flavor to the pie that we all really liked.  My only real qualm with it is that I fogot how much the filling cooks down so I should have used more intially instead of saving the cut up apple and ruttabagas for snacking over the next few days. You live you learn.
