Hence, this little photo-essay:
First, have your toddler stir together the ingredients.
Make sure he has a beverage handy.
Keep him at it until it looks more or less like this.
Spread waxed paper on a damp surface.
Place pastry dough in the middle of the waxed paper.
Prepare for rolling out.
Unorthodox rolling pin technique or salute to the pastry gods? You be the judge!
Expire of the cuteness.
Remove top sheet of waxed paper,
and transfer rolled out dough to pie plate.
This is what the flour/sugar/lemon juice looked like, proportion wise, this time.
Pour the filling into the pie plate and set aside. Somewhere out of your toddler's reach, preferably, because if you don't...
...this is what happens.
I did mention that I like to overfill my pies, right? And you're not suffering double-vision from the length of this post. We had to make two pies for dinner tonight - 11 people.
Dot with butter. Mmmm, butter.
Not my best lattice top, but it'll do.
Have your toddler tidy up a little while pie's in the oven.
However, the possibility does exist that I may have used one or two (hundred) too many blueberries. You should see the bottom of my oven.
Off for dinner, pies in hand. Happy Sunday, everyone!
