Just how easy is pie? The best apple pie I ever had was made by my buddy (we've been friends since grammar school, that's a long time) Susie's mom, Annie. I can make a good apple pie, but her mom's pies were outrageous with a crust to die for. So one day I asked Susie if she'd ask her mom for her recipe. Here's how the recipe went: first she goes to the orchard where she gets a couple bushels of apples, then she takes one can of Crisco and a bag of flour...so much for replicating that crust. I forgot that whenever Annie made pie there were usually five or more of them. Annie had seven kids, not to mention all of their friends (lots of friends) and there was always something to eat on the kitchen counter. The memory of those pies is making me salivate.
So this week at Pile it On the challenge is to
make a Thanksgiving card or just give thanks to someone. This week our sponsor is Karen's Doodles who gave the design team some images to play with, I'm using the Grandma Pie image. If you click here, you can see what the rest of the design team created, find the rules, and the linkey thingey so you can post your creation. We all love to see what you do.
