The Results (sort of)
The day after I attempted my first ever pie crust, I found this tutorial on Smitten Kitchen. Deb has never led me astray so as much as I wanted to toss the crusts I had just finished and follow her instructions instead, I was tired and at that point only had 9 fully functioning digits. It was full speed ahead with the original crusts and I am happy to say that they turned out pretty well! I somehow managed to take completely crappy pictures of them, but you can see the pumpkin above and the uncooked apple below. I made the pumpkin before we left for Thanksgiving, and decided to make the apple when we arrived at my cousin's so it would be warm when served.
I can't take much credit for the apple pie besides bringing the ingredients and peeling some of the apples. I was rolling out the dough while the rest of the ladies in the family mixed the apples with the seasoning, and I was having trouble even doing that! My Mom intervened and explained that I wasn't using enough flour, and she rolled it out on wax paper and then just flipped it upside down on the pie dish. Much easier.
