Sangria Pie

Kristie came over Monday evening, bringing my favorite Chinese food and her effervescent cheerfulness. We like to get together now and then to catch up on all the happenings in each other’s life.

Since she brought supper, I made dessert in the form of Williams-Sonoma’s Sangria Pie. I’ve been looking for an excuse to try this recipe after having enjoyed it at Paula’s a couple of weeks ago. I added bits of fruit to make it pretty. Note to self: practice patience and let the pie chill/set in the fridge longer and then it wouldn’t be mushy causing the pretty fruit arrangement to slide off.

Yesterday I went to Williams-Sonoma to get something I needed and was telling the manager about the great Sangria Pie recipe I tried from their store. She got really excited and told me she was the one who actually invented the recipe by mistake when the store ran out of Margarita mix for a demo pie and she substituted Sangria Blanca.

What a novel flavor for a pie! Would it work with red sangria wine?

Kristie said...

That's so cool that the creator of that recipe was a local! It was good pie.

I don't know who came over to your house, though. "Effervescent cheerfulness"?? Moi??? :op

Love you,
