|Mixing the flour and salt|
I couldn't find my mother's pie crust recipe and didn't feel like searching the back of my recipe shelf for it (and didn't want to make my mother search for her copy either), so I used the recipe in my Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook. We followed the recipe exactly however after searching for at least 40 minutes I gave up finding my pastry blender/cutter and we used forks.
|Feeling the dough|
I decided making it from scratch really wasn't bad and it rolled out very easily. Of course it was not perfect circles like the refrigerator ones, but we had fun. I had to explain to Hazel that her rolling pins in her kitchen and play dough area are not for real food. She did not completely get this, but gave up on the fight and helped me with mine and then "rolled" it more when I had finished.

We of course made apple pie since that is Daddy's favorite dessert. My job was to peal and cut the apples. Then I passed them to Hazel who put them in the food processor to slice them. She enjoyed being the food processor operator.
