Mrs. Beeton's Cherry Pie
Well, Princess Mushroom's actually.
Yes, I actually made pastry today from a recipe in a Quirrie edition of Mrs. Beeton. I had some grown-up help, but I did the actual making ALL BY MYSELF, and the pastry turned out just light and beautiful, so my audience (or should one say "gustience") tell me. And they are right, because I had some too.
But a Quirrie Mrs Beeton - what fun! The best of all worlds, you might say. Above are some pictures from it, illustrating the very instructions I followed this afternoon.
