“I can make apple pie. Shall we have that for tomorrow’s snack then? Is that okay with Tyran-san too?”


It seemed like the conversation was settled.

However, Demon King-sama must have really wanted to eat raspberry pie, as he happily explained the reason as well.

“It seems that the Hero’s favorite is raspberry pie. During their adventures, they would often complain, ‘I want to eat the raspberry pie made by my childhood friend.’ So, I’ve always wanted to eat raspberry pie so badly, and I decided that someday I would have it made for me.”

A slight crack could be heard from Demon King-sama’s face, which was trying to hide behind the word “Hero.”

“Should we stop making raspberry pie after all?”

“Huh? But, Dairy said she would make it…”

“If you keep eating the Hero’s favorite, you’ll become a useless adult in the future. It would be better to have a snack that someone other than the Hero likes. I will research and bring a list for you to choose from.”

“Even though it’s delicious… I can’t have it?”

Demon King-sama pleaded with teary eyes, seemingly wanting raspberry pie so badly.

I felt guilty seeing that adorable expression.

Tyran-san also looked at me with a puzzled expression, wondering why I had an excessive reaction to the word “Hero.”

From the human side, Jude is a hero. It’s understandable if they find it strange.

“…If you say it has nothing to do with the Hero, then I will make it.”

“! I want to try that pie, so please make it.” 


I dislike raspberry pie. I don’t even want to smell it.

But still, the pie and Demon King-sama are not at fault.

I repeat in my mind that this is what Demon King-sama wants to eat, imprinting it in my brain.

If I don’t convince myself of that, I might end up crushing the snack that should bring happiness with frustration.

The next day, at Tyran-san’s request, I made a bowl full of milk jelly.

He took the bowl and a large spoon and headed to the king’s chamber, then showed it off in front of the snack-less Demon King-sama.

It is said that he continued to eat silently, without paying attention or listening to any noise or pleading.

It’s quite immature, but this seems to be Tyran-san’s revenge.

Demon King-sama must have endured quite a lot, as Tyran-san told me with a smile that he was banging the floor in frustration, just like yesterday.

The grudge of food is truly terrifying.

Nevertheless, the next day, both of them were happily devouring raspberry pie with calm faces, and I once again realized that demons and humans had decided to coexist.

“Dairy, there’s another pie I want to eat.”

“What is it?”

While eating raspberry pie, it seems he was already thinking about tomorrow’s snack. It must have come to mind because of the connection to pie. It’s a common occurrence.

I’m glad I made extra pie dough and applied a preservation spell when making raspberry pie.

As someone who often relied on frozen pie sheets in my previous life, making it from scratch every time is quite a task. 

One of the reasons I used frozen pie sheets is that the dough needs a long resting time.

“I want to eat apple pie. Olivier made it for me before.”

“Ah, the one you brought on the first day. I want to eat it again after a long time.”

“Understood. Then, let’s have apple pie tomorrow.”

Apple pie is easy. I often baked it for my friends’ birthdays.

Although there are several types of apple pie, this time I plan to make one with custard filling.

Using the dough that I enchanted, I’ll start with making the custard. 

In a bowl, I put egg yolks and sugar and mix well.

Once it becomes pale, I sift in the cake flour and lightly mix. Then, I gradually add the milk that has been heated until just before boiling while mixing.

I return this mixture to the pot and heat it.

To prevent it from burning, I stir it well from the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon until it becomes a creamy consistency.

While letting the custard cool, I prepare the apple filling.

I cook the cut apples with lemon juice and sugar until they become soft and gooey.

I cut about a third of the dough, and the larger piece is laid in the pie dish, with the excess cut off.

I prick the laid dough with a fork to create small holes.

These holes serve the purpose of releasing air when the pie expands. It is an important step in making pies and tarts, not just limited to apple pies.

The cut-off piece and the smaller piece of dough that was left are combined and cut into strips.

With these strips, I create a lattice on top of the pie and a braided border. 

Once the braids are done, I place custard and apple filling in the mold and cover it with a lattice-like belt on top.

Finally, I surround it with braids and bake it in a preheated oven.

This time, I added custard, but apple filling alone is delicious enough.

It’s also good to sprinkle cinnamon powder at the end of making the filling for added fragrance.

While the apple pie is baking, I make cookies. Once the apple pie is done baking, I put the cookies in the oven.

As I transport them to the king’s chamber, I take out the baked cookies from the oven and let them cool. By the way, these cookies are for Migi-san and Hidari-san.

Tomorrow, I am supposed to visit the demon who is making fruit, and they asked me to make jam cookies.

Just like what I gave to Tyran-san, I plan to put small ones in jars. I have also prepared empty jars.

“Well then, please.”

“Leave it to me!”

While rolling the kitchen wagon with the apple pie and knife, I head towards the king’s chamber.

Tyran-san and Demon King-sama are already seated, and even the tea has been prepared. The preparations are good. They must have been looking forward to it.

However, both of them are wide-eyed in front of the apple pie.

“What’s wrong?”

“It’s different…”


“Even with the same snack, the appearance can be so different depending on the maker.”

“Did it not meet your expectations?”

“The one I had before had apples on top. Are there no apples?” 

It seems Olivier-sama made a type of apple pie with sliced apples arranged on the surface.

As Tyran-san said, even with the same dish, people have different images in mind.

It’s like the difference between jam cookies with a hollow center and those without.

Until now, I never served the same dish as what someone else made, so I forgot about it. I should have asked. 

“It’s inside this lattice… Should I remake it?”

“I’ll eat it! Even with the same apple pie, the taste might be different. I have to confirm!”

“Sometimes, having a different apple pie is nice too. Please cut it.”

With a crisp cut, the scent of apple and custard gently wafts up.

Demon King-sama doesn’t seem to mind that the shape is different anymore and is delighted, saying, “Apple pie! It’s the scent of apple pie!” His voice rises again as he puts it in his mouth.

“Olivier’s was delicious, but Dairy’s is also delicious! I want more, more!”

“I thought I was used to eating apple pie… Yeah, it’s good.”

“There are refills, you know.”

As I inform them, two plates are simultaneously pushed in front of me.

Rather than remaking it, they seem to have the momentum to finish it right away.
