Let's Eat Pie

Today, I have been preparing for our Thanksgiving meal we will enjoy tomorrow with our daughters, my parents, and the grandbabies. We will have turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, corn pudding, green bean casserole, lima beans, and apple pies. I just took the pies out of the oven, and does my house ever smell good!
Apple pies...
I went into Williams Sonoma yesterday and found these cute little leaf cutters on clearance.
It reminds me of playing with Play-Doh.
And I kinda made a mess.

Two pies ready to go into the oven.

The recipe is one that my husband made many years ago and entered it in a church cookbook from the church where I grew up . It is such an easy but very delicious recipe.

They turned out very pretty, if I do say so myself.

Now, if I can just keep everyone out of them until tomorrow.
It is tempting, though.

Enjoy your day tomorrow with family and friends. I plan to do the same.

I need to find those fun leaf cutters. What beautiful crust you make for your pies. Orange juice huh? I have never tried that before but I am sure it tastes fabulous in there. Even if someone sneaks a piece, it makes for a great story. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

THese are absolutely scrumptious-looking, Sheila! If they tasted as good as they LOOK, Oh. My.

Hope your day was wonderful,

Those leaf cutters are on clearance? I have been stalking them all season. I'd better get to W-S pronto. Your pies look beautiful!

Your pies look wonderful. I always make a mess when baking. Your recipe sounds yummy and easy but I'm allergic to oranges....any suggests for a substitute ingredient? Thanks for sharing.
