Thanksgiving Day Pie Help 2015
TDay is coming up soon! It will be another large gathering at Pie Cottage this year with lots of family and many friends for a potluck. If you’re like me, you are already dreaming up menus of what will be your contributions to the table. Turkey for sure, dressing, sweet potatoes, Brussel sprouts, and pie of course on ours!
My plan is to set up an outdoor prep kitchen under a 10 x 10 tent on the new deck that Duncan just built for me, and do all the cooking and baking inside using the two ranges in the kitchen. Hopefully the wind and rain will hold off for the day, and if it doesn’t? Well, I’ll just bundle up and head out there anyway. And the next day, we’ll have leftovers to feed everyone who’s coming to help with the fence raising around the piece of land that I bought this summer that adjoins Pie Cottage!
To help with your planning, you will find links below to some of the most popular technique and equipment posts. From how to travel with a pie on a plane, to a tutorial on how to make a beautiful lattice crust, I hope these tips and tricks will help to make your TDAY pies the best yet! And, next week I’ll post some links to the top Art of the Pie® recipes, too.
If you have questions and suggestions about things you would like to know about, please do leave a message for me in the comments section of this post. I do read each and every one of them and will do my best to respond to you right away!
