How did that hole get there!?
On Friday my husband came home with a load of fresh cherries that someone gave him. There were three different kinds. So, my son, the expert baker, decided to make a pie. The rest of the cherries he pitted and froze. He froze them laid out on a tray and then put them in bags. When you eat one, it's just like eating ice cream!
Anyway, while he was cooking the filling, I came over to peek in the pot and was fascinated by the wonderful color! Here's with a flash and without.
While it was baking, it was boiling over.
After taking it out I figured out why. The center of the crust rose and pushed out some of the filling. Here's a top view and a bottom view.
We were both stumped as to what happened. If any of my readers knows why that would happen to a pie, we'd love to know!
