gluten-free girl and friends are having a pie party today. it was clearly the perfect opportunity to attempt my very-first-pie. i wasn't convinced i wanted to make crust so i bought one instead. yay for pre-made pie crusts.
i made smitten kitchen's peach and creme fraiche pie. sort of. i discovered - after i started - that i was out of baking powder and didn't have enough powdered sugar. since i didn't want to go to the store again, i substituted brown sugar for powdered sugar and skipped the baking powder altogether. (skipping it probably wasn't my best idea, but i didn't have any of the ingredients the ever-helpful internet said you could use as a substitute.)
as a side note, i wonder how one goes about cutting butter into flour without a food processor. it must be possible - everyone in the world clearly doesn't have a food processor - but i cannot seem to do it. (i wonder even harder when it occurs to me that it might be a necessary part of pie crust making.)
mishaps aside, my pie was yummy! thanks to gluten-free girl and friends for inviting us all to join in!
