    Homemade crust! [​IMG] I'm following at least four generations of my family's recipe...for the first Thanksgiving ever, my mom is having ME make the pies (normally she does it). I need to fold and pinch the two crusts together better before baking the next time I make fruit pies, but overall, these turned out quite well. Of course, I had to personalize the crust pattern.

    What do you think?

    I love those! What a cute idea with the chicken cutout and using them also to decorate the crust. They look delicious and I know everyone will love them! Good job!

    Those look great.
    I wish I lived close enough to help you get rid of your practice pies. [​IMG]

    Those look very nice. I use to love to sit and watch my mom pinch the dough around the pie tin rims when she baked......

    Ooh! looks yummy! [​IMG] How did you do the cut-outs? With a cookie cutter or by knife? I think I may do something similar with my Pies! Thanks for the idea! [​IMG]
