Pie Party!

Just before Thanksgiving, my sister-in-law, Sarah, hosted a pie party. Isn't that just a great idea? All the girls brought their ingredients and crusts and we put together our pies in her ginormous kitchen.

Emma and I made a pear & plum pie.



She helped me cut up the fruit. I showed her how,





Then I let her try it by herself.



We added our sugar, corn starch & spices and piled it all high in the pie plate.




I decided to try a new crust recipe, and though the dough was a little unwieldy, I have to say that I was very impressed with the texture and flavor.



See that perfectly golden pie? The tall one? Oh yeah. That's my pie.



Lots of other girls also made pretty pies.





Once the pies were well under way, we stopped for a delicious dinner of homemade soup & grilled cheese sandwiches.




It was a super fun night.
Thanks Sarah!

Yay! I'm so happy you and Emma came! It was a chaotic, yet scrumptious evening! Your pie was truly spectacular and I must say (after pie for breakfast this morning), my three pies turned out better than I expected! Thanks for your crust assistance!
