Have you guys ever heard of King Arthur Flour’s Bakealong Challenges? If you have, bake on with your bad self! If you haven’t, let me fill you in on the fun.
Once a month the folks over at King Arthur Flour host a bakealong challenge. Don’t worry, it’s not a challenge against other bakers. This is all about you. You, learning a new baking technique, or trying out a new recipe. Not only do they provide you with a really great recipe, they also provide baking tips and tricks, and a step-by-step walk through with pictures included. After you finish, take a picture and post it on Instagram with #bakealong. It’s a really fun way to learn something new.
I learned a new technique with this one; I had never made a pie crust that you fold like this. Folding the crust makes it extra flakey, the butter makes it extra delicious, and together they make the most beautiful, scrumptious, golden-colored pie crust!
This particular challenge is perfect for this time of year because of all the beautiful berries in season. I picked up some raspberries at the store yesterday to try this with; just gonna substitute the raspberries for the blueberries. Can’t wait to try em!
You guys really should try one of these challenges (check them out here) it’s fun and learning combined, and when you’re done, you have something yummy to eat!
Even Angels love Blueberry Hand Pies!
Happy Baking, Friends!
