    Nice job! Looks good! It's a lot of work to make a pie from scratch.

    Congrats, looks beautiful - I can make bread/pizza dough w/ my eyes closed but I just cannot make pie dough, always falls apart when I try to put it in the pie plate. What recipe did u use?

    Looks great!


    . . . how are you pronouncing pecan? I said it wrong to a friend from the south.
    He said "A pee can? A pee can is something you put under your bed in the south."

    Thanks!

    I used this one:

    http://www.chowhound.com/recipes/basic-pie-dough-10746

    I used a food processor to chop in the butter/shortening and i froze the butter/shortening first (recipe calls for all butter, i did half butter half shortening) And i made sure my water was ice cold.

    I also make bread/pizza dough all the time. I recently switched to Type 00 italian flour for my pizza dough and it has changed my life! Unbelievable.

    If you are making pizza dough, this si what yo uneed:

    Looks good to me, but I just eat pie.

    Let me get the opinion of my food scientist. @Neesie what say you?

    I ain't a scientist, but I play one on TV. :D

    It looks really good - pie crust is hard to make. Only thing i would do is pinch/crimp the edge of the crust, but that's just a cosmetic thing. I'm sure it's delicious!

    I agree.

    It was a conscious decision to not go for the nice cures on the crust as I wasn't sure how to do it and i wanted to get it in the oven before my daughter went to bed.

    those are her dirty hands in the first pic "presenting" the unbaked pie
