Photo shoot of a breakfast in bed. Because it was a Sunday and I wanted to take photos of one. I wish I could say I made the croissants, but sadly they are store bought. Still tasty though because, well it's a croissant.
A little blueberry pie. All for me.
So I have been looking at British recipes sights lately. I have about 200 recipes bookmarked from them. Everything looks amazing and different from what I normally see.
One of the recipes was for Gordon Ramsay's shortcrust recipe. Always on the search for the perfect pie crust, I thought I would give it a go.
Watch the video HERE, do exactly what he says and you will get the most amazing crust. It is by far my favorite. When you cut through the crust when eating the pie, you can see it flake. It's so delicate and soft, sweet or savory, you can use it for anything. I've made four batches of it so far.
I think the pan I used it meant to bake brie or something in. It's not a traditional pie dish but it works wonderfully, just in case anyone was wondering. My aunt let me borrow this old dish, among many other things. And then when my parents got back from Barcelona, they brought me back some kitchen things. A new version of the exact same dish to be exact! And a smaller version. What a small world huh?
I used my special little jar of vanilla sugar that I got in Carmel-by-the-sea a long time ago. It's by Wildly Delicious. The best I've had so far. It even comes in the coveted little Weck jar. I was smitten at first sight.
Still one handed typing, I'm done! Enjoy!
