The Day I Made 7 Pies… and Lived to Tell About It.

Last Sunday my Youth Group held a pie auction to raise money for our Mission Trip.. We had a total of 31 pies… and raised $1275.00.  The rule was that each kid should make  2 pies.  Since I have 3 kids going.. and well, I'm going I made 7.  Here they are..

Homemade crust with, blueberries, lemon juice, flour and sugar for the filling.  The top crust I made "holes" instead of lattice. I had a little blow out on this pie..

I also made a Pecan pie.. but I forgot to take a photo of it.

Do you know what these are?


They are pie weights.. I use them when I make cream pies… See that parchment paper that is keeping the weights from touching the crust?  I've NEVER used that… and I've made lots of cream pies.  Guess what I left in one of my crusts?  A pie weight.. How embarrassing!  It was my good friend that got it.. so it's all good.  Still embarrassing 🙁  have you ever done anything like that?
