Notes

Now that you have the pie crust down, it is time to get fancy. Here are three easy ways to decorate your crust and make your pie look that much more amazing.

NUMBER ONE

Pinch Method
To make a pinched edge, line pie plate with pie dough and trim overhang to 1/2 inch. Using the thumb and forefinger of one hand, pinch a small piece of dough while also pushing with the thumb of the other hand. Continue around crust.

NUMBER TWO

Cookie Cutter Method
To make a cookie cutter edge, line pie plate with pie dough and trim all overhang. Collect all overhang and roll out extra dough to 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to make designs and attach them with a small dab of water. Continue around crust.

NUMBER THREE

Fork Method
To make a forked edge, line pie plate with pie dough and trim overhang to 1/2 inch. Using the back of the fork, gently press lines into the edge of the dough. Continue around crust.

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
