Brushed with 3 Tbsp soymilk, 1 Tbsp agave, and 1 tsp oil, mixed and brushed on exposed crust. Then topped with glitter sugar.

What are you most proud of? The crust is very flakey, and the pie tastes good! I was happy about being able to use the moon shapes that Evan showed us in class. In the slice view, they also look a little like the ISIS headdress -- Next time I'll put a circle in the center and exaggerate the cresant, and call it a goddess pie! HAHA!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? My pie plates are 10" instead of 9". So instead of dividing dough 1/2-1/2, in the future I would put slightly more on the bottom, so that the sides crust can be higher. It boiled over in the oven and made a bit of a mess. Also check often -- the crust is a little browner that I intended. It didn't taste burnt however. And maybe just a little less filling.

I am so happy you showed us how we can use creative shapes for the equivalent of a lattice! I really like your expanded definition. The color on the photo doesn't seem that much like the real one -- there are some browns in there that I didn't see in the real pie. I think food photography is a little difficult!

Beautiful!! Did you thaw the frozen berries first?
