#13 - Become known for my pie-making skills

March 6, 2011 will go down in history as the day I baked my first pie. From scratch. None of this sissy pre-made crust or filling-in-a-can stuff. I'm talkin' apple-slicin', sugar-moundin, butter-poundin', crust-chillin', pre-baked snackin' goodness. My mom helped, of course. It was my first time.

It was delicious. The crust was my favorite. I'm sure the butter-flavored shortening had something to do with that. Next time, I'm going to do a crust with all butter. I loved how it looked too, kind of rustic and imperfect. Quite vintage actually. I snapped a few photos on my mom's spanky new phone.

So here's to becoming known for my pie skills. It's going to be a tasty, tasty ride.

golden AND delicious
hand-sliced. with love (that's the key)
handsome crust.
i'm loving those little star cuts.

GOR-O-GEOUS!! And to top it all was a Double AND bottom! You little over-achiever You! I just figured that French Apple Pies were invented so you didn't have to mess with double crusts all the time!
Good job!
