Motherhood Stuffs: Challenge myself to make a pie crust from scratch

Challenge myself to make a pie crust from scratch

YES! I challenged myself one day to make my own pie crust from a scratch. I figured we had so much flour stocks and it needs to use before it expires. I went online and search for help, seeking for the easiest recipes on how to make a pie crust from a scratch. I am in doubt that it might be too complicated for me, as I am too sluggish to read and understand the procedures I know I thud pathetically.

Moreover, I compelled myself not be unconstructive and procrastinate so I found a better YouTube page to help out with my baking. I usually screwed up with the dough making so I wish myself luck.
 
After the mixture, it needs to store in the fridge for 30 minutes

The reason why I decided to make a pie crust is so I could bake an apple pie as I have been craving one after I ate my MIL’s homemade apple pie. We have fresh apples and I can definitely make a homemade filling, which I do find very easy, rather than making a pie crust.
 
After kneading... ready to transfer into the pie pan.

Eventually make the edge some decorative look...


There goes the pie in the oven...

My bad, I didn't noticed that I have to cover the edges with foil so it won't burnt...but lesson learn from each mistake..

Anyways, after watching and reading, I have finally dared myself and made it through. It wasn’t a perfect diameter after kneading; nevertheless, it wasn’t a bad outcome for the first time. Meaning, the next time I will bake a pie-crust, it would be as simple and easy since I didn’t have any bad experiences. I have now the confident to bake a pie crust.

  3. That is great, you finally found a recipe for making pie crust. Although you burned it, it is okay because first time is always not perfect. I am sure you'll do it right the next time

  8. You taking the challenge to make the crust from scratch is a mean feat. Kneading alone is not an easy task. Kudos to you :-)

  15. Ahhh, it is said, from mistakes you learn a lot, from success...not much, so take the lessons dearly and of course when success comes it means you can eat happily. :) Great job sis, I haven't baked for so long....so I doubt if I'd be ok :D
