Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful we've all made it this far.

And for getting the pie crust to this point, too. That's my Grandma's rolling pin and glass pie pan with a scalloped edge and handles. I haven't been making the crust for all those pumpkin pies I've made. Today will tell which direction I take in the future.

What did you decide? I used to make all my own piecrusts until it occurred to me that a lot of people don't really care for the crust. Now I use the ones in rolls that you just flip into the pie pan. I'm actually pretty impressed with them especially when you do a decorative edge!

I will try the rolls you mention. I've been using the frozen & formed crusts, already in a pie pan. So in comparison to those, I liked the flavor of this one I made myself better.

I doubt I will want to make it myself, so the rolled dough may be a good way to go.

In the past, I think I ended up with too much flour due to trying to prevent sticking to the rolling pin. THis time, I rolled it between two sheets of waxed paper and it worked out very well. That is also what helped me get it on the pie pan.

THanks for the note.
