Submitted by MichelleThis year for Turkey Day, David and I were invited to join my friend Teri and her family. Teri and I met in September of 2011 when we both enrolled in the same Master's Degree program. Teri and I immediately gravitated towards each other and we've been front row friends ever since.
The fall has been so hectic and harried, between my surgery and teaching a new grade level and curriculum, that I eagerly accepted the invitation. I was more than happy to be a guest rather than a host, and offered to bring pie.
Teri told me her two adult children love pumpkin pie, so I was glad to oblige. I made the recipe off the side of the can of Libby's pumpkin and it turned out great, as always.
A few days ago I blogged about pie crust and you can see in the photos that the All-Butter Pastry does not hold it's shape, but I can say that the free-form look is worth it because the crust is flaky and buttery every time.
David and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with Teri and her family and are so grateful that she opened up her home to us. I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with love and joy whether you were guest (like me) or a hostess.
