I have shared before about my Mother's pies. They are soooo good. What makes them delicious is her crust that always seems to turn out for her. It shouldn't be so good. She uses boiling water and a little milk. I have watched her make it for years. Never to attempt this weird recipe. For one thing, she doesn't have a recipe. She just throws it together with no exact measurement. Well, yesterday morning I watched REALLY carefully and took notes. I then went home, (had to buy lard on the way) and made two pies while it was all fresh in my mind. LL says they both turned out great. He is so kind.
|This is the peach pie. The pies are not as pretty as Mom's.|
|Had a lot more trouble with this apple pie.|
The crust would not roll out well and I didn't make enough filling to really fill the pie nice
