Life is a Piece of Pie

Yesterday was prep for the feast today. The stuffing has been made already before my mom and I even had breakfast. And the pies are made. Pies are one of the things that I like making because they are so simple yet very delicious. Here's my favorite pie crust recipe from Jenna Wogenrich's Made from Scratch.
1 1/2 sticks butter, chilled
2 tbs vegetable shortening
1 tbs sugar
2 cups flour
3 tbs ice water

Cut butter into cubes and place into bowl. Add shortening and sugar.
 Add flour and cut into butter mixture with a pastry blender or food processor until it looks like coarse cornmeal.
 Add ice water until it looks like this.
 Place half of the dough onto plastic wrap. Take two edges and press then to the center and repeat until you form disks like.....
 ...This. Chill for at least one hour.

 Roll out and place into pie plate. The easiest way to do this is to place the pie plate upside down onto the pie crust. Grip two edges of the pie crust and hold the pie plate and flip it.
Now I made pumpkin but do whatever filling you want.
The finished product. Yum!
