I know. Thanksgiving was last week. I did make these before Thanksgiving but didn't get the pictures uploaded in time. Better late than never right?
The crust recipe is from King Arthur Flour. I love their site. So much good stuff. I used to use Martha Stewart's recipe all the time for crust, but I think I like KAF's better.
2 1/2 cups unbleached pastry flour, or all purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
Sift together or use pastry blender to combine flour and salt.
1/3 cup shortening (if you rinse the measuring cup with cold water first, it will help the shortening to come out easier)
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
1/2 cup plus a few tablespoons more of
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and shape into a circle. Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes. NOTE: this is a must! It makes the dough so much easier to work with.
Flute edges as desired.
apple pie filling from here, minus a little of the syrup.
Arrainge the leaves on top and brush with egg whites.
400 degrees for about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly and enjoy!
blackberry pie I had to put in a sqare pan since I ran out of round pie pans. Still super good though!
