my newest skill: pie making

pumpkin for our dinner with Anthony's aunt & uncle

an apple our dinner with Anthony's aunt & uncle
Angus Black Chess Pie just because

two apples for Thanksgiving - crumb & lattice

triple layer chocolate pumpkin for Thanksgiving

oatmeal raisin for Thanksgiving

mini pumpkins because I had leftover stuff
the only one I missed a picture of was my pumpkin but it looked like a pumpkin pie. I got to try each of these except the triple layer chocolate pumpkin (the 3rd layer is that white sweetened sour cream - really good). I'll just have to make it again (and eat it myself bc Big A wasn't so fond).

I spent about 8 hours on my feet the Friday after Thanksgiving making pies. I learned a good lesson - wear shoes. My feet hurt terribly for a few days afterward. But I enjoyed every second of pie-baking. I learned I don't like pre-baked crusts (or at least need pointers on it). I learned to read the whole recipe first and get all of your ingredients out (more counter space would help this tremendously).

Wow!!! You're the pie queen! I'm really not great at making pies. My crust never seems to turn out right. Maybe I need some lessons from you :)
