2 years later...
Well it has certainly been a while since I have attempted a blog post. Almost 2 years! 2 years ago I had an 18 month old and we had just started live in foster care work. Now I have a 3.5 year old and an 8 week old, and we will be moving from California to Papua New Guinea in September.
Life has certainly changed. I will certainly be learning to more things from scratch, on purpose, and all the time, not just for fun.
These beauties are homemade hand pies filled with peach jam. I used the "Foolproof Double Crust Pie Crust" From the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, and substituted butter for the shortening I didn't have. Following the recipe as is gave me 10-12 hand pies depending on the thickness I rolled to. I used a heaping spoonful of jam per pie, smashed the edges together with a fork, and baked for about 25 minutes at 350.
