Half Baked Lettering

Occasionally I get a pie in the sky idea and have to broadcast it to the world through delicious, half baked wonders. I use a standard recipe for my crusts, cutting blindly to flattened dough to create smooth, dimensional forms. 

Both pies were assembled from a tweaked pie crust recipe, chilled throughout the process to keep the letterforms both flaky and solid. Humble Pie was lightly inspired by Christine Kawasaki-Chan's Easy As, though we use 100% original content. For Pi Day (March 14th), I decided to up the ante, layering pastry to make a meta pie: three layers, one dough, four hours.
