I have a small confession to make. I have never, in my twenty-six years of life, contributed to Thanksgiving Dinner. How embarrassing. I told my mom and Sudan that I wanted to change that this year, and they both laughed at me a little. I’m primarily a healthy cook (besides the excessive baking) so I guess they assume that I can’t pull off any traditional Thanksgiving dishes. So rude. Well I’m going to prove them wrong and I have exactly one month (!) to practice. Starting with pie.
I bought a new pie dish and a mini pie baking pan and I’m going to get to work this weekend. I have this idea of making a bunch of mini pies to serve at Thanksgiving Dinner, as well as one bigger pie, but we’ll see how that goes. Do any of you have a delicious recipe I should try? Should I make my own crust or use a store-bought mix? And what’s the secret to making sure the top doesn’t get too brown? I need all of the details!
