Did you know that making pie is an occasion for playing dress-up?

It’s true!

My lovely friends Elona and Janine and I had rather too much fun taking these photos on Thanksgiving morn, as we made a Fancy Chocolate Chess Pie (Thanksgiving, I know. Ouch. What a slacker.) I had also made a Louisiana Browned-Butter Pecan Pie the night before, which I proudly showcase below.

And now for the nonsense…

IMG_1019It is very important that one wears pearls when baking.

Also that one has all of the proper ingredients on hand.

IMG_1023As well as the proper tools.

IMG_1024Begin melting butter and chocolate in a double boiler. This will only work if you wear heels at the same time

IMG_1027What puts the Fancy in Fancy Chocolate Chess Pie? Fine yellow cornmeal.

Don’t be alarmed if chocolate accidentally gets on your face amidst all of the whisking.

And another thing…spare aprons make excellent capes.

It would be rather a sin to let any Fancy Chocolate Filling go to waste. Just don’t let your dog lick any up.

IMG_1054This has been a real, honest-to-goodness portrayal of what it looks like every time I make pie.

(Just kidding.)
