Some feedback from friends, a little research on google, and I was set to make it. I am sure somewhere in my past I have made crust from scratch. But nothing that I carried with me to my adults days.
I learned the most important part: temperature is cold. I would even ice my hands a bit before mixing in the drops of water.
And it came out GREAT!! Mmmmm. Flaky, made with butter and actually quite easy.
So ta-DA!! I've accomplished my goal. (nothing like John's 100 pots though!! Maybe someday when I am older...ouch, sorry John.)

I would have to give awards as follows: lower left (Nunzio) for most exotic--he had white raisins inside and coated his crust with egg white...look at it shine. lower right (Steve) for best looking and top (mine) for most apples.
Actually I have been on a 10 year quest to reach the apple limit, and I think I did it this past Saturday. Look at how high it is. Looking at it makes me crack up.
Of course the babies were there, I knew you were wondering. Would they miss out on their first ever pie bake off? They were climbing all over the place, even in the trees...And Sue --well I do not know what she was doing with the babies, looks like they each had a bit too much. (her hubby Steve peeking behind her0 The pie was deee licious!!
Another important part of this Pie Day, was Serbian dinner day!! While not pictured, Zaqlina and Lee cooked up a storm of stuffed pickled cabbage, spinach cornbread and broccoli. yummy!! We were treated like royalty this day.

And later, 12:50am, the costumes arrived, with Becky's sister, Cinder, arriving incognito....and I caught Becky's expression.
