pies galore

I don't know what possessed me, but I made two pies for thanksgiving. One of the savoury persuasion, out of the pages of Food and Drink (that glossy LCBO magazine everyone drools over), and one sweet one, from 101 Cookbooks.

And why not make two pies? They keep excellently in the fridge, and I'm still finishing them off, a week later. Here's the savoury one - Mushroom and Squash Pie with a Cheddar Cheese Crust. It took a long time to make, but if you're trying to impress someone, go for it! Spend your time cutting out intricate pastry oak leaves! It tastes delicious, especially the flaky, cheddar filled crust.

The sweet one was equally delicious, but didn't make it into any photos - a Maple Buttermilk Pie. Think custard, maple syrup, and a hint of lemon.
