Don't you just love a beautiful pie? I'm making the apple pies for our Thanksgiving dinner this year. I made them last year too and had wanted to get some little fall leaf cookie cutters, but I never did. When I got a recent issue of BH&G magazine, they had a pie crust kit in it that you could order. I almost order it, but decided that I wanted to customize my own so I could get exactly what I wanted.
So, I went to Amazon and order this leaf cookie cutter set, this rolling pin cover and pastry cloth, and two pie crust protector shields. I was really surprised when I went to write up this post to see that some of the prices had gone up by as much as 50%! I've never used a rolling pin cover or a pastry cloth. They're made from specially treated fabric and you're supposed to put flour on them before you use them so that you don't wind up putting too much flour on your pie crust and drying it out.
I had to go back and scrape off the edges with a straight pin.
I was going to keep it in my pantry, but I thought it was cute enough to display on top of a kitchen cupboard.
'Til next time. Have a great day!
