It was a wonderfully creative assignment, and I immediately had an idea. A really, really bad idea. An idea so bad that it took over whatever processing space was available in my brain to contemplate the dietary habits of important historical figures with the culinary equivalent of "100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall."
Finally I gave in to my inherently poor taste and went into the kitchen to cement the damage the "Sweeney Todd Pie" did to my reputation, not to mention endanger my status as a family friendly blog.
You're so fine and you're mineFor the Material Girl herself I made a wholesome crust with the additions of rolled oats, flax seed meal, and applesauce. (I'll share the recipe after I tweak the proportions. The flavor is simply amazing, but the texture isn't tender enough.) It perfectly complemented the tempting black cherries, previously frozen, which had just a touch of sugar, lemon juice, and corn starch added. To top it off, I sprinkled a ring of toasted coconut along the outside circumference of the tart.
Make me strong, yeah you make me bold
Oh your love thawed out
Yeah, your love thawed out
What was scared and cold
On the bright side, at least I wasn't able to figure out how to make a cone out of dough to bake as a top crust.
