using store bought pie crust. i know, baby steps. i crafted this beautiful crust.

    I’m a pie fanatic! I’ll be making 7 pies this Thanksgiving! But I’ve always wanted to do the braid border crust and you convinced me to! Yours looks GORGEOUS! Check out the Pioneer Woman if you haven’t yet. AND her pie crust recipe.

    It looks fantastic! I would love to make pie too, but have never tried. I love the braiding!

    Yay for you! You make me want to go make one myself. I’m enjoying reading your back posts. I like your style, short and sweet and to the point.

    Were you one of those kids who didn’t talk until you could say a perfect sentence? Cuz seriously, that pie is beautiful!

    THAT my dear, is THE most beautiful pumpkin pie I have ever laid eyes on. Heck, I’ve never even ever made a pie. Yours turned out perfectly delectable. It also photographed beautifully. Congratulations! My hat’s off to you, my friend.

    How could this possibly look this good? Huh? It’s beautiful – like something out of a magazine. That braided crust is fabulous.

    I have made pie but they never look good. Mostly cause I’m impatient and don’t take the time with the crust. But they are still tasty. PS – Try the Pioneer Woman’s crust. It is awesome and pretty simple.

    That’s gorgeous, Michael. And if you ever start a blog solely for cooking and baking, I suggest “Pumpkin and Fearless” as a the title. 😉
