Friday Pieday Graphic

The Secret Ingredient of Wishes came out this week and I could not be more excited! Shameless “buy the book” plug: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | Indie Bound

So to celebrate the release, I made a raspberry version of what has turned into my “good luck” pie. The original pie is a Blackberry Sour Cream Pie and I made it for the first time with two of my critique partners the weekend I found out I was going to have “the call” with my now agent. We were celebrating and being ever-so-hopeful and having a damn good time together. See? (There may have been a Manhattan or two and some Gilmore Girls watching involved too.)

Since then, I’ve made a few different versions of this pie, and while blackberry is still the usual favorite in my household (when I suggest pie, M always votes for it!) I decided to go with raspberry for this celebratory pie. The recipe I love is from Let’s Dish and it is amazing. I also used the remaining dough from the strawberry pie that I made a few weeks ago and had stored in the freezer.
