People, I was at nm’s house this afternoon watching her make pie crusts WITHOUT A FORK!!!!!! I think I literally stood there slack-jawed.
If I were not forbidden from making my world famous apple pie* for Thanksgiving, I would have totally come home and tried making pie crusts nm’s way.
She mixed it with her hands. Then she smooshed it with the heel of her palm.
THERE WAS NO FORK!!!!
*Some people I am related to are giant babies about tart apple pies. But I ask you, world, if you don’t fill your pie with tart apples, a.) aren’t you just eating not-quite-done apple sauce and b.) don’t you need the tart to pair with the sweet of a good vanilla ice cream, which you scoop over the hot pie? I shake my head at the babies in my family.
