Thanksgiving Prep 2014

2014-11-26 Pies

Last night, John, Claire and I worked on our food assignments for this Thanksgiving Day.  John made the pie crusts, following my sis-in-law, Leslie Laemmlen’s recipe.  She is the All Time Hands Down Pie Queen.  Claire mixed the pie filling following my mother, Grace’s recipe.  It’s our favorite.  (I’m a little embarrassed to say I was folding and organizing DfG fabric as the pies were made.)  John also steamed the yams for candying this morning.   I made my traditional fresh cranberry and orange relish and I added the cinnamon sugar to the pie crust scraps (our favorite part of pie-making)!

  1. Any chance of you posting Leslie’s pie crust recipe? She was two of my boy’s pre-school teacher and I know she is very talented in many areas!!! I’d love your relish recipe too!
