Grannie made such beautiful pies!
One day, I asked her, "How do you get such beautiful pies
with the crimps around the edge so even?"
"It's a family secret," she said.
"So promise not to tell.
I roll out the dough, then cut a bottom layer
and carefully put it in the pie plate.
Then I slowly pour the filling, making sure it's not too full.
Next I cut a top layer and put it over the filling.
Finally, I take out my teeth and just run them
around the edge of the pie crust,
and they make the nicest even impressions you ever did see."
I have had this picture for a little while now but was just waiting for the right time to make a post of it. Yesterday I made an apple pie from some Granny Smith apples I had leftover from the last batch I bought at the apple farm. That's when this pic popped into my mind again, and I just had to share it with you all! Sorry, but I forgot to take a pic of the pie I made. And, no, I do not have false teeth, so my crust was just crimped with my fingers!
