brooke's bakery

i baked my first pie.
that's right people,
i'm awesome.
everything was from scratch.
the crust.
the filling.
and i used peaches off the tree.
i know,
you're impressed.
you might be feeling the need
to refer to me as betty crocker,
but i'm trying for something even better.
i'm going for my mamma.
the next linda turner.


ps- the crust is the hardest part.
i screwed one up and threw it away.
good thing it only takes three ingredients.
(you can tell it was all crumbly and wouldn't stay together.)
want the recipe for the crust?
then you can do whatever filling you want.
vegetable oil pie crust:
1 1/3 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 C vegetable oil
3-4 Tbsp cold milk
sift flour and salt together.
mix oil and milk together. beat with fork until combined.
make a well in the center of your flour and add milk mixture.
mix with a fork until moistened.
roll in a ball.
refrigerate 30 minutes.
(if you want crust on top, you have to do this twice)
roll out between 2 sheets of plastic wrap.
carefully place in pie plate.
peel back wrap and gently fit into pie plate.
add your pie filling.
place your second crust piece on top.
cut off extra and flute edges.
cut slits for it to breathe.
bake at 450 for 15 minutes,
then turn down your oven to 375 and bake for an
additional 40 minutes.
and that's it.
not nearly as hard as i thought it would be.

  1. Do not and never will use that stupid crust recipe... Love mine soooooo much better. Mine is a revised version of Grandma's. If you ever want the recipe for the better one, just let me know. :) Mick
