My lovely and patient friend Sara taught me how to make a pie this summer. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years but have always been too intimidated by the idea of making pastry. Sara was forced to memorize her grandmother’s recipe by heart on the spot…her grandmother told her she only had one chance! So that was that, and so she did…and she has never written it down or forgotten it. As for me, I’ll be having another pie lesson next summer with my friend Sara!
* One thing I do remember though is that I really like an all butter crust.
