Food Wishes Video Recipes: Face Pie – The Halloween Pastry You Can’t Un-See
Face Pie – The Halloween Pastry You Can’t Un-See
A few months ago I saw a pie image on Twitter so creepy, and
disturbing, that I actually questioned whether it was too terrifying to post as
a video. Usually, Halloween-themed recipes have the opposite problem, as they
are almost never actually scary, but that’s not an issue here. By the way, can
someone get sued for giving people nightmares?
Anyway, I eventually traced the image back to what I assumed
would be some sort of food blog, but it was actually someone’s Etsy shop, where
they were selling inedible versions of this basic design. So, I wasn’t able to
see how it was made, but did use their “face” as a rough guide, and despite being somewhat anatomically challenged, I thought this came out looking great.
And by great, I mean terrible.
If you’re disturbed enough to make this, you can use our tourtière recipe for the crust and filling, which is exactly what I did here, except for
whatever reason I added a touch of ketchup to the meat. Of course, this
technique would work for topping any pie, including all your favorite fruit
versions, and the next time cherries are in season, I may just have to give
this one more try. Or not. We’ll see. In the meantime, if at all possible, please
