Less than a week until Thanksgiving and I have a confession for all of you. I was terrified to make my own pie crust… like avoided it at all costs but when I made my “test” pie I made my own crust and it was way easy!
I use the recipe from Ina for perfect pie crust, note I do not own a food processor so I just use a pastry blending tool.
So use that one if you are a newbie and don’t be scared it isn’t that bad and if you mess up you can always go to the store and get some or maybe just add it to your list just in case.
So as far as pies I am making a pecan and a berry pie this year… what kind of berry I have no idea.. I guess I need to figure that out… but for the pecan I use another Ina Recipe. I use her recipe for a Maple Pecan Pie but I do not add the orange zest, I did in my test pie but I feel it overtakes a lot of the flavors.
So the other pie I do is a walnut pumpkin pie it is from a magazine that is probably like 15 or so years old since my Grandma has been making it as long as I can remember. I love this pie for multiple reasons 1 being that I love graham cracker crusts and 2 I love the nuts on top!
If you have problems reading it let me know and I can email it to you :]
Stay Crafty and Have a fabulous holiday!
