I've been baking pies!

I wish I'd been able to make the "real" thing, but the gooseberries are nowhere near ready yet & if the weather stays as cold as it is, I'm not sure I'll be able to pick any of the "real" thing!!
But...my thoughts (despite the weather!) are turning to summer & the very first fruit I get in my garden are the gooseberries...closely followed by red & blackcurrants..I just love anything made out of any of these 3 fruits so in my mini sweatshop, I've been making a gooseberry pie & a prep board to go with it. This pie is not quite the normal pie as I'm not too keen on pastry overkill...so I've named it a "Gooseberry Crown Pie"!  Next one to work on to get my tastebuds anticipating the fruit ripening is a red currant pie, then perhaps a blackcurrant.......





Please send me some warm weather so I can make this for real! :-))
