Ratio Baking Experiment #1

I don't know if it's beginner's luck but this was one of the yummiest desserts I've eaten. It's pie dough, improvised from the basic ratio, with a pear-ginger filling I made up. I suppose it's a tart..but no custard. Maybe an open-face pie?

The crust was perfectly flaky, and the bits of crystallized ginger brought out the pear but weren't overpowering. So fun to make!

I had egg whites leftover, so tonight I made up an angel food cake without a recipe - picture to follow. I'm like a liberated woman in the kitchen now! (And yes, I do realize how funny that sounds.)
