Saturday Before Thanksgiving!

At first glance, I would pass this pie plate up....snub my nose....however....













   
 
Who would have thought a "floppy" pie plate would  make such a wonderful pie shape?   The real secret: one of these little handy crust pressing tools!   You could probably use any small cookie cutter, but it wouldn't have the pressed design.  


Do you make your pies simple or fancy?   Are you asked to bring your "special" dish for Thanksgiving dinner or other special occasions? 


The pie plate and pastry shaped cutters are all Williams Sonoma. I thought this little half apron, available on Etsy, would be the perfect color!

I am loving both the pie plate AND the cut out design you put on the crust.

I don't "do" pies. Can't master the crust.

My sister? Makes the best crust on the planet - - - or at least she USED to when we were young and still practicing kitchen "arts"

Ok, I can cook, but my pies never look great. This one is beautiful. My daughter would have apron envy if she was on here. Last year I found several vintage ones on ebay for Christmas. She loved them. Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. Reading your blog is a daily treat.

That pie looks beautiful...I'll be making 4 pies this Thanksgiving, and I hope mine turn out half as beautiful as that...or better! I don't think I'll have time to do much of the decorative crust, but it sure looks lovely!

Oh your pie looks so lovely - almost too good to eat. The apron is really pretty as well.

Thank you for visiting my blog and the name suggestions!

Janean, your pie is beautiful. I love the little leaves on the top. I'm making cheesecake this year instead of pies. :)

That is a beautiful piecrust. Bet we can't get them over in the UK - I'll have a look, though. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to meet you. xx

I love the pie dish and the cutouts. The little impressions are so much cuter than the little cookie cutters I use. It's my job to take pies, yams and to make gravy when I get there. My DIL's swithch off having dinner.
My pies are good, but they never look that good. Maybe I should invest in a new pie plate instead of the old Pyrex ones. Love the apron too, very vintage.
Love coming here. Happy Thanksgiving.

What a nice time I had catching up on your posts! I looked to see how the shop/garage/shed/church is coming along, enjoyed the gorgeous maple photos, wished for a pie plate like you found and browsed in the cockerel mercantile. Most worthwhile!
If I don't get back in time, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours down there!

That seems so fun! I love the apron, it's very appropriate :)

Lynn said...

Thank you for telling me where to find the acorn pan! I did find it and did see the floppy pie pan, but gotta tell you, seeing your pie with that fancy crust, makes me think I want to do pies again! That pie of yours is just beautiful! I also saw little "gift" cake with bows! Thought wouldn't that be great to decorate for Christmas and put, "peace", "love", "health", etc on a cake, the real gifts of Christmas that money can never buy. I now have a "wish list" for Williams Sonoma! I just love your blog Janean, so warm and friendly.
Hugs,
lynn

What an adorable apron and beautiful pie!! It depends on how many pies I have to make as to fancy or plain- sometime you just dont have time for fancy with 8 pies!! This year I am not making a thing as we go to DH neice's house for Thanksgiving and she wants to do it all!

happy Thanksgiving!

My husband and I bought the little pie cutters last week when we were shopping after dinner one night. I've used small little leaf cutters before but they didn't leave the impressions. We bake pies year round so they'll get lots of use! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
