    Making the crust (makes 6 single crusts)

    Mise en place




    I still cut this with a pastry blender, not a food processor.



    Done



    Add wet ingredients and mix.



    Roll out a bit to fill a 9 inch pie tin. Press the crust into the bottom.



    a-ha! I have a little extra dough.... see what I do with it!

    Pecan Pie

    Mise en place



    check this out closely. this is one of my "tips and tricks" I make batter for 4 pies to fill 3 9 inch crusts. (this is a very old family recipe, they used to make 8 inch pies) There is a little extra batter, but you will see how I use it, maybe you already know!



    The batter is mixed

    Sweet potato, these go in first because they take the longest.



    I always place the pecans in the crust first and then pour the batter over.





    In the oven.



    Here is where the extra pie dough and pecan pie batter go

    Pies are a dedication of love because they are A LOT of work. I always make an apple pie for Thanksgiving and phew that takes some work.
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    I've never met a Sweet Potato Pie that I didn't like. Nearly choked to death on a sweet potato as a youngster, I've been taking my revenge ever since.

    Meanwhile, fishing in Russia:

    Got up early today to make a few pies.



    Had most of the fillings already made.



    Apple pie ready to be topped.



    All total I made 30 pies.



    The 30th pie is an "orphan pie". This was all the leftover filling and some crust. There is sweet potato, pumpkin and pecan all mixed together.

    Special treat

    For my friends picking up their pies. We made hummus and pico de gallo served with yellow corn tortilla chips.
