This is a little treat for all you Twin Peak fans and sweet tooths out there. I made a cherry pie inspired by Norma’s famous cherry pie that she serves at the RR diner in Twin Peaks.
In this mysterious small town in the American countryside, a high school girl is murdered and the great FBI agent mr. Dale Cooper arrives in town to investigate the murder. The first thing he does is to visit the double R diner and eat some Cherry pie and a black cup of coffee. He really loves coffee too. I have to agree with him, nothing beats a good, black, cup of coffee and a slice of cherry pie. Throughout the TV series there are many cherry pie scenes shot in the Twin Peaks diner and they perfectly captures the American essence. I think David Lynch is one of the greatest artists we have and his TV series Twin Peaks is a true masterpiece.
In this post I will share with you the Twin Peaks Pie I made this afternoon. Yesterday I picked berries from the magnificent cherry tree in my garden.
I had to climb a ladder to reach the berries
It took me some time to remove the pits from all these berries! I found a great tip on google, if you don't have a cherry pitter you can use a normal chopstick. I wonder what people did before google, when they did not have the entirety of human knowledge available at their fingertips.
Making the cherry filling
I made a little palm tree decoration on my pie, here it is before baking
This is how it looked when finished. I remembered too late that the pie should have some cuts in it to allow the steam to get out. The filling was a bit too runny but very very good
Here is my version of Norma's famous cherry pie

I hope you enjoyed this Twin Peaks / Cherry pie post, I wish you a wonderful day
I mixed two recipies to make this pie:
