I made my first pie!!! I was so excited!! My friend Leslie and I went to the farmer’s market and bought the fruit. It was wonderful!
I had a little difficulty with the crust. But making the lattice crust was so cool. I can’t wait to make another one.
Everyone liked it! It was a huge hit!!
I have a lot to learn about pie! And I can’t wait to make more delicious pies as I learn!! 🙂
