Making progress...

The day after Thanksgiving I decided to learn how to make pies like my mom. I don't know if you folks know but my mom is sort of a big deal in the pie baking world...she won first place at the church picnic..pretty impressive if you ask me. She always shakes her head at me when I brag about her pies but hey they are delicious and people need to know.'s a pic of the crust perfecting action!
