Bake15: Persimmon Pear Brandy Pie with Vanilla Bean Crumble (Pie #7)

You guys… we have our first mega-fail pie. MEGA-fail pie. So, so, so, so gross. Even Mike said we should throw it out.

But… It was bound to happen eventually, right? No big deal. Kind of disappointing… throwing away a pie is never easy.

I tried this Persimmon Pear Brandy Pie with Vanilla Bean Crumble. Mainly because I had persimmons and pears to use up. Apparently, not the best idea.

I’m only going to share a few photos since it was a disaster. And you guys… I actually followed the whole recipe on this one. Step by step. Like, really. (That never happens).

Gross point A: Super runny insides. This should have been my first red flag, but sometimes pie insides look runny and then get better after they cook!


Gross point B: WAY too much flour in the topping. It’s like… all flour. You’re thinking: you should have just added something to it before you cooked it if you knew it was going to be so bad. I’m thinking: SWEET I’m actually following the recipe!!!

Gross point C: It just tasted so bad. NOT a good flavor combination.


The pie ratings:

The pie rating scale is a Mike-determined scale from 1 – 10, with a 5 being the “classic, homemade apple pie”, and 10 being the highest rating.

Emily: 1

Mike: 1

Definitely never, ever making this pie again. Not good in any way. Seemed like an interesting flavor combination, but was a major flop!

    Well Emily that is not bad – have to admit, it didn’t look appetizing uncooked, but it did look good cooked! You are one brave girl, going out on the limb to try new things. I will still stick to my Marie Callendar – no fail – pies – LOL!! Look forward to your next baking adventure!!
