Last summer, while visiting my sweet sister-in-law in Minnesota, I copied a boiling water pie crust recipe out of an Amish cookbook (I know, It totally breaks all of the rules of pie baking)!. I can't believe it has taken me this long to get to it... but it *is* National Pie Day! So here I go...
First, Dad is letting me use his beautiful wood biscuit bowl that belonged to Granny... and also reminded me that Joyce (his wife) is the world's best pie maker. I didn't need reminding, as her pastries and other baked goodies are unforgettable! Scrumptious! However, it *is* National Pie Day and Joyce isn't here... so we'll soldier on and Dad says he'll try a piece. So, check back for the official pie judging results!
Granny's Biscuit Bowl
This is where I'm at now... I'll and let you know how it turns out! Happy National Pie Day!
Note: I've already found (Googled) another boiling water pie crust recipe that I think I'll like better for mobile use. I'll have more experimenting to do before I find *the* recipe. I've always made my pie crusts in the traditional (cold) way. But I'd like to find a "road friendly" approach. I'll post my final recipe at some later date.
