Did you know that making pie is an occasion for playing dress-up?
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…
Also that one has all of the proper ingredients on hand.
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.
