There was a decent portion of my life where I avoided making homemade pie. I certainly didn’t attempt hand pies.
I left that task to my older sister, who is known as the pie expert in the family. The crust intimidated me, and my crimping skills were lacking.
And by lacking, I mean nonexistent.
I’m all for chocolate desserts and the occasional slice of cake, but fruit crisps and pies are my one true love.
Give me a slice of homemade pie and a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, and I’m one happy girl.
