Vienna falling into Autumn
Or: Sometimes she bakes


Free-Form Apple Pie at Casa Merisi
Made with Topfenblätterteig -
Austrian cream cheese pastry
similar to Rugelach dough,
given a turn or two, to form layers
of flaky dough


One More Outdoor Meal
The leaves and temperature keep falling,
but this being Vienna, patrons insist on dining al fresco,
wrapped in blankets against the autumn chill


Autumn Mood
Subdued colors under grey sky,
observed from an outdoor table
at Mochi's restaurant in Leopoldstadt,
only a bridge crossing from the historic center
Photographed October 2014

  1. Oh, oh and oh, again, Merisi! This collection of October photographs present a perfect invitation to come and taste the pie, enjoy the gentle falling of golden leaves, while gazing at a surrounding palette of loveliness.

    Many thanks. xo

  5. Vienna seems to be gorgeous during this time of year. I have visited and autumn and remember how beautiful it was. Just today I made some Wiener Apfelkuchen! :)

      I have now added "Casa Merisi" next to the apple pie, lest somebody shows up at Mochi and wants to order a slice of my pie. ;-)

    1. Very simple and not very sweet, the only sugar I used is the powdered one on top.

  10. I fear the delicious food at Casa Merisi would undermine my attempts at a low carb life! Indeed, all Vienna would! But I can feast with my eyes.

    1. I see the conundrum, clearly, staying off simple carbs and have the cake too! ;-)
      You could leave the powdered sugar off, how about that?

  15. What a beautiful presentation of pie. The dimensions of flakey wonderful dough baked to perfection. I would eat that outside no matter how cold it was.
