First Ever Made From Scratch Pie
I just baked from first every made from scratch pie. I have to admit I was always intimidated about making the crust so I always bought the ones in the refrigerator section. This weekend I decided I would take on the challenge and make it myself.
After I started make the crust I realized I don't even know why I was so worried in the first place. It was easy to mix the ingredients together for the crust however I did have a problem really rolling it into a circle but no worries. The filling was made from peaches I picked last year and made into peach pie filling and froze. I used the crust recipe from the Betty Crocker cookbook and the filling recipe was from the Ball canning book. The pie was delicious!! My husband finished off the pie within 3 days and he's not a person that really likes pie but he requested I make more pies with the homemade crust from now on. I told him don't worry there will be more homemade pies. One of my goals is to still make sweets but making them either healthier nutrition wise or at least from scratch so we not consuming all the processed food.
I would have to say that I was so proud of this pie when I pulled it out of the oven!!
