Grandma’s Beautiful Pies

You must try this recipe!


Granny Adams made such beautiful pies! One day, I asked her, “How do you get such beautiful pies with the crimps around the edge so even?”

“Well, it’s a family secret,” she said. “But if you promise not to tell, I’ll let you in on it.”

“Okay,”I said. “Tell me!”

“Well, first, I roll out the dough, making sure it is flat and even. Then I cut out the bottom layer and carefully put it in the pie plate and make sure it is firmly against the sides of the plate.”

“Then I slowly pour in the filling, making sure it’s not too full.”

“Next, I cut out the top layer and carefully put it over the filling.”

“Finally, I take out my teeth and just run them around the edge of the pie crust and they make the nicest, even impressions you ever did see!”
