Boysenberry pie a la mode

Remember Merrilyn’s Boyseberry Galette from February 26?
I’d hoped to make tiny galettes for the next RLEHS Throwdown, but my first attempt on Feb 28 was a big failure. I needed to try something else.
For the next batch on March 1, I used Merrilyn’s recipe and put the pastry rounds in a mini-muffin tin. The tiny flower cut-out and sparkling white sugar, also from Merrilyn, were the perfect topping.
I told Justin he could have as many as he wanted but had no idea he could eat SIX of them. (Then again, when he was about 10 years old, he ate 20 of Maria’s tacos in one sitting.)

The RLEHS Throwdown is today and 48 little boysenberry pies are going into the trunk to be driven carefully to Rio Linda. I’ll serve them with a little scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Big thanks to my consulting team: Merrilyn and Phyl; and the many people who taste-tested everything, including the office staff at WALKSacramento. (Noooo, I’m not competitive.)
