When I decided to pony up for round two of the pie project, my husband was thrilled beyond belief.  We began thumbing through old recipes from 2010 and tried to figure out which pies I needed to incorporate into this year’s edition. That’s where this pie started.

Travis was so excited for the upcoming Pie #53 that one evening he jumped right in and decided to make Cornish pasties. We had extra turkey left over from our post-Christmas feast. He made the filling, I made the crusts and TADAAA….turkey pasties! No recipe on this one- all ad-lib. Situation normal in the kitchen whenever my husband does the cooking. How fun for me to start the year off making a pie with my sweetie pie. Love you, Travis!
