It's Pies and Tarts Week!

As we enter our 8th week of social distancing, so begins our 4th week of The Great Social Distance Bake Off!

I hope everyone is holding up ok. I've loved seeing all of the bread recipes you've been baking! Bread Week was a challenge and I'm looking forward to experimenting with different types of bread to really get it right. 

This week is Pies and Tarts Week!

If you haven't joined in yet, it's not too late! You can jump in at any time but there are a few rules:
  • If you use a recipe, please credit the source! Recipes from cookbooks should not be posted in their entirety without the author's permission! 
  • You don't have to do both bakes each week, but if you're only going to do one, it has to be the technical challenge.
  • Substitutions are highly encouraged! I'm keeping this very broad because I know how hard groceries are to come by right now. The point is NOT to go out searching for specific ingredients but to use what you have and to get creative with it! Do you have rose water lying around that you've never opened? What can you do with it?
This week's signature challenge is simple enough - make a pie, tart, or galette. You can use any kind of filling, it can be sweet, or savory, but you have to make your own dough! I made a Derby Pie, using this recipe from Half Baked Harvest. I used Joanna Gaines' recipe from Magnolia Table for the dough.

For your technical challenge, you're to make pies, tarts, or galettes in miniature! Again, you have to make your own dough and you're to make a small batch of your bake.

As always, tag me in your bakes on Instagram @christyrunsdc with the hasthtag #thegreatsocialdistancebakeoff!

Ready? On your mark, get set, bake!
