Brush with Greatness

I’m famous!! Or rather, my pie is famous!  It was published in a fabulous new cookbook by Maine food writer Sandy Oliver.Screen Shot 2012-12-03 at 3.07.25 PM  I just learned last night my pie was included in this book when I read about it on Leslie Land’s wonderful blog.

Sandy got the recipe when I shared it with her for her column in the Bangor Daily News in 2010.

Of course, I shared it here on Henbogle first, the day I invented it, basing it on a recipe from Epicurious, and with support from my best bud and fellow pie maker Holly.

And now, it is famous!  As it should be.  You’ll have to buy the book to see it.
