Once again very nice pies Craig. I'm amazed with your attention to detail, and knowledge of this craft that so many of us seek. Your thread is among the ones I visit most often to gain some information on different methods. What I've learned from this forum is a lot, and it has helped me understanding various processes, and hopefully that will help me reach my goal of one day opening my own place.
But the most significant we all learn from this place is to try to figure it all out. Yes, we can all take a recipe and make a good pie, but the true passion comes when we try to tweak the recipe to gain what we all think is our perfect pie.
So my question to you: Do you feel you have reached your perfect pie? In any case, what do you define as your perfect pie?
