Hmm…pie.  Apart from the annual pie fest that occurs every Thanksgiving, pies do not make nearly enough appearances in my life.  Last weekend, I set out to change all of that by tackling a homemade pie.

This doesn’t happen often, as I usually leave the pie making to my older sister, who has been dubbed the “Pie Queen” in my family.  Despite making countless tarts and even tackling homemade puff pastry in school, pie dough continues to intimidate me.  And for good reason…
