I spy pie

One of my favorite recipes is the savory Russian Carrot Pie from Mollie Katzen’s Enchanted Broccoli Forest. (If you make it, try the nut crust with almonds and pecans.)

I like to make two and freeze one for later. If I can keep the tigers at bay…

    That looks so good I am feeling inspired to make it myself. I need to get some cottage cheese. And carrots.

    Great photo!! Looks delicious.
    Reminds of Bonnard’s ‘La Tarte aux cherises’.
    My copy of ‘Enchanted Broccoli Forest’ is about 20 years old and is really just a collection of very stained individual pages.

    I made a double batch of the same this past Saturday! The universe is calling for carrot pie. (thanks for the recipe oh so many years ago…)
