Basic Flaky Pie Crust
I intend to master the art of homemade pie crust. Starting today. And, although I don't often blog "process" photos, I am ridiculously happy with the dough for tonight's dessert, so I took a few.
Somehow I managed to roll a nearly perfect circle. I'm not sure that will ever happen again.
A tip I learned from... somewhere. I forget where. To transport the rolled dough to the pie plate, drape it around the rolling pin. Ta da! I was able to move it without stretching or breaking it, and it landed in the center.
I shall acquire crimping skills. Someday.
