My Guy Loves Pie - May Pinterest Challenge

Welcome to the May Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen!

Handsome Husband stole my heart ages ago.

The father of my children and keeper of my secrets.

His favorite dessert is lemon meringue pie.

Down thru the many years we've been together, I haven't had any trouble making pie filling or meringue.  Crust, however, is a completely different story.  Most of the time, it's not even edible.  I don't know how many times I've said something like, "Sorry, guys.  Just eat around it."  That all changed, last October when I stumbled across this blog post and attempted pie crust one more time.

10 Things You Might not Know you need This Thanksgiving

There's a recipe Elizabeth calls "The World's Best Pie Crust".  I'm thinking pssshhhh...  Not in these hands.  However, I gave it a try for my sweetie's birthday.  No one spit.  That's a good sign!  I tried it again for Thanksgiving and everyone enjoyed their pie.  All of it.  Even the crust.  Christmas went well, too!  With this recipe, I have consistently baked yummy pie crust every single time.  'Totally confident that Father's Day will go off without a hitch.

  1. Pie crust can be hard to get just right. I finally gave up and started buying ready made crust. But you have given me encouragement to try again.

  2. It's been a long time since I've made homemade pie crust. I'm going to have to check out the recipe!

  3. I think we all like pie!
    My mum used to make an awesome lemon meringue pie, I remember if family were coming for a special occasion she would get up really early to get prepared and by the time we came down for breakfast a lemon meringue pie would be on the side making us hungry!

  4. That is the same recipe my mom taught me growing up and we always have great crust! so glad you finally found something that works.

  5. I've used that recipe before, too. It must have been popular in Good Housekeeping or Better Homes and Gardens at one time. It's great that it's making the rounds again!

  6. You're too funny. Pie crust can be a hit or miss. I don't care what people say, it does take a bit of practice and skill to get a good pie crust, so it's great that you finally found one that works for you :-)
