scenes from a weekend

pie making
Thank you for stopping by! I've gotten so many questions about this pie since the original post so I'm just coming back to let you know I've tried to gather them all up and answer them here for you.

Finally got to make use of the fancy new pastry cutters my husband got me in my stocking.
he knows me so well...and also that it would get me to make him lots of pies...

ice on evergreens
The plowed piles of snow are so high that I can't see around any corners to make a turn without risking my life, forserious. On the other hand, what hasn't been plowed is perfectly awe inspiring.

the perfect pairing
And what better pairing for a winter's day than my knitting and favorite (full) coffee mug?

Beautiful pie! Where can I get some cutters like that? :)

Thank you! The pastry cutters were from Williams-Sonoma. I believe they offer different shapes according to the seasons and I've had my eye on some snowflake ones. Not sure what they currently have available though.

Such a beautiful pie! There's obviously a lot of layers there, did it all cook evenly?

Thank you! This pie was one of the best ones I made all year, it turned out beautifully and is made from scratch, inside and out. There are actually not a lot of layers, but rather, the edges of each leaf layer each other, and no more. I used the recipe from the Joy of Cooking for "basic pie dough" and cooked as usual. Hmmm...I see I'm getting a lot of traffic from pinterest on this. Perhaps I need to expand and do a how to post!
