Author Notes

This is a favorite of my mom's to feed a happy group of friends -- mine, hers, or both -- during the summer in her back yard/organic garden. The sour cream adds a smooth tartness that is delightfully complimentary to the sweetness of the fruit and the buttery crumbliness of the crust.

When I was living in Manhattan, my friends and I would periodically hop on the train to New Jersey and visit my mom for a backyard grilling and sangria-tippling evening. It remains a tradition now that I have relocated to Washington DC, both when I am in town and when I am not! On a recent work trip to Jakarta, I received delightful photos of my friends in my mom's backyard enjoying themselves with the message "wish you were here!"

This recipe comes to mind when I think of those good times with my friends and my mom at my childhood home. —Portia Hunt
