My mother was intimidated when it came to making pie crusts. She bought hers from the frozen foods case in the market. They were good.
Mr. Aitch’s mother was a great pie maker so when I got married, I decided that I should make my own pie crust. It didn’t seem like it should be all that difficult. Sometimes they were tough. Sometimes they were chewy. Sometimes they were perfect.
I rarely make pies any more. Except at Thanksgiving. Mr. Aitch likes my pumpkin pie better than his mother’s. He likes my stuffing better than hers, too.
A couple of years ago my daughter brought her pie crust making machine to our house to help me make pie crusts. It was so wonderful that I bought one for myself.
Do you have one of these?
It makes the BEST pie crusts. I just wish I used it more often that once a year.
To my American readers: Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Be safe in your travels and give your loved ones an extra squeeze.
