Windy Wednesday.....

So today was to be the day that I officially launched my Etsy and Made It Stores and announced the Giveaway to celebrate. However Mother Nature has been unkind and we have had a day of swirling winds and the odd rain shower which has made taking photos of some new items and the Giveaway items very hard! Pieces of paper, wind and a 15 month old who has taken a liking to eating dirt out of my pot plants whilst outside doesn't make taking photos easy!

However, I have baked today and thought I would share the recipe!

Louise's Gourmet Pie aka Easy Pie!!

You will need....

125g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup coconut
fruit - either drained tinned fruit or fresh - I used fresh apple and tinned peaches

What you need to do....

Melt butter then take off heat and cool while you mix dry ingredients
Add all other ingredients (not fruit) and just mix into a dough - if it looks really buttery just add a little more flour

Grease a pie dish and then press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom and up the sides you can then put into fridge for 10 mins to firm up but i dont bother

Put the fruit in to cover the base and then just crumble the rest of the mixture over the top - it doesnt need to cover the fruit entirely

Bake at 180 degrees for about 30 mins or until golden brown


A little bit to golden in some spots but it tastes really good!!!

Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with the Giveaway details.

Oh and I will have the photos from tonight's flower class tomorrow too!!
