Advantages: Hot, Delicious, Tasty,
Disadvantages: Not that good for you
I'm not sure about others, but as these chillier nights come in, I can't think of anything nicer than having a nice hot pudding. Usually it involves fruit and custard/ice cream. Last night I was in Iceland when I noticed they had an offer on. It was for Aunt Bessies Morello Cherry Pie and they were only charging £1. I've bought these before for £1.59 from Tesco and I knew I liked them, so I put one in the trolley.
Upon arriving home I prepared my tea, and then popped the pie in the oven. It advised to pre heat the oven, which I duly did, and of course remove the outer packaging. One thing I found a little different was when it suggested I glaze the pie with a little egg and/or milk and sprinkle with sugar. I guess this was to stop it from burning on the top. However I did as I was told and waited 45-50 minutes on Gas Mark 4 for the result, turning the pie around half way through.
After the time was up I removed the pie from the oven. It wasn't burnt in anyway and the smell of fruit was wafting around the kitchen. Absolutely gorgeous. My daughter then helped me cut the pie, and this was really the only disappointment. It just fell apart. I'm just glad we didn't have guests because it would have looked ridiculous. Anyway we added Devon Ice Cream to the bowls of pie and they tasted absoloutely delicious. The pie was still extremely hot and we had to blow on it a bit for my young boy (he also never liked the large cherries) but we were all blown away with it. Although it stated on the pack that every effort to remove Cherry stones had been made, some may remain, we found none in ours.

A fantastic pie which is ideal for a family of a winters night. Best served with ice cream or custard. You will often see coupons for £0.30p off so if you combine this with Iceland's price you could be onto a real bargain.
