Fruit was the theme for last night’s pies class. We made Strawberry Apple Crumble Pie and Cherry Cream Cheese Struesel Pie. And they both turned out amazing!
The first pie we made was the Strawberry Apple Crumble Pie. It was packed with lots of apples chunks and strawberries. I must admit, it was alot of work, but well worth it. And I just love crumble topping too!
The second pie was the Cherry Cream Cheese Struesel Pie. It too had the crumble topping, otherwise known as “struesel”. It was essentially a layered pie with cream cheese, and cherry filling alternating within the pie. It was baked, but unlike cheese cake which is also made with cream cheese, the texture of the filling wasn’t baked as firm. Instead the filling was left creamier, yet oh so delicious! 🙂
