Adapted (ever so gently) from In Jennie’s Kitchen
When you make this rich pie, think about a brave young woman starting down a frightening new path. Her life will go on in the absence of the adored husband with whom she thought she’d grow old. She’ll be raising her 8 and 3 year old girls in a way other than what was intended. She will work to redefine “normal,” and she will be surrounded by a community that loves and supports her. Because she is strong, she will persevere. Jennifer Perillo – mother, recipe developer, food writer – responded to an outpouring of emotion and offers for help when she suddenly lost her husband, Mikey, due to a heart attack. She asked people to make his favorite pie on the day of his memorial services in NYC. I made this pie on that morning with Jennie heavy on my mind and in my heart. I stayed true to Jennie’s recipe for the most part, but made a few small adjustments. I offer you my tips and photos here. Enjoy this with the ones you love and take a moment to be thankful for their presence in your life today.
