My nephew Eric - Christmas 2005
Thursday, November 27, 2008
I'm sure there's much more, but it would take all day to list and I don't want to bore you.
I slaved all day Wednesday to make pies for Thanksgiving dinner. Here's part of what I went through.
**start with the pastry**form into nice round ball**make sure it fits**
**fold in half*****fold in half again*****place in pie plate**
**unfold*****tuck under edges*****flute the edges**
**prick with fork***close up shot***HOT 450 degree oven**
**bake for 10-12 minutes*** The end result***
I was too lazy to take pictures of the filling process so you just get to enjoy the end result. Yum! I actually had time to make the pastry from scratch this year. Had a little left over so I rolled it out, sprinkled it with sugar and cinnamon and baked. Forgot how flaky and yummy my recipe is.

To finish this:
I figure if I do my average of 2 rows per day (not much, but my left hand gets cramps really bad!!!), I will finish in about 2 months.
