On slow winter days, when the cold outside has you stuck inside, I find myself with the need to keep my hands busy. Wallace is so much fun in the kitchen, pulling up her chair to the counter to help stir whatever is in the mixing bowl, taste testing as we go along. So, it seemed only right that the boredom buster we needed on this particular day was baking something scrumptious!
Looking through the freezer can be the best inspiration for what recipe we are going to create, and its a great way to get into those back forgotten corners and use up the frozen goods. We just so happened to find a container of frozen saskatoon berries picked a couple years ago from my father in laws property.
And so was inspired our Saskatoon berry Impossible pie.
If you haven’t heard of impossible pie, its the perfect winter dessert, using staples from the pantry and those frozen berries hiding in your freezer. Once baked, these simple ingredients all settle out in your pie dish creating a crust bottom, a custard like filling and a top layer of crunchy coconut and berry topping. It’s basically kitchen magic!
