Every year at Thanksgiving we have pie. Mr. D must have pumpkin pie and then I make a pie of my choice. I will confess right now that I have never made a homemade pie crust. I use the pie crusts that are usually Pillsbury found in the refrigerated section of the store. This year I am going to try to make my own crusts. The recipe I am sharing with you today is from Ina Garten’s Cookbook, Make It Ahead. I am not going to wait until Thanksgiving Day when I am cooking a lot to prepare these crusts. According to the directions, you can make the dough ahead and refrigerate it. I plan on making this on Monday and keeping it until I bake my pies on Wednesday.
Ina is such an inspiration and I have always been pleased with any of her recipes. Mr. D loves to say that, “Ina hasn’t failed us yet” and he is so right.
I hope this inspires you to make your own pie crusts. One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is making some of our most favorite traditional recipes and at the same time, trying new ones.
Thanks for stopping by.
