Day 25: Pre Thanksgiving

I started baking today. And as any good baking day goes it involved lots and lots of butter and some cream cheese thrown in for good measure.

I mean, it's my patriotic duty to commit such gluttonous crimes. I can't be held accountable.

I also can't be held accountable for the mess that ensued. For the record: I HATE this part. I hate cleaning but I hate for things to be messy. There is no happy medium in that kind of situation.

I managed to make pumpkin pies that were not from a can of Libby's easy pie mix.

But my favorite thing from today remains these Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. Seriously, I cannot endorse a dessert enough. These things are magic.

how the heck did you get your pie crusts to be so perfect?! i am jealous...mine taste pretty good but they always look like a kindergarten art project by the time i get them transferred from the rolling pin to the pie dish. le sigh.

Pillsbury frozen section. I'm a pie crust

It's on my life list, but I'll need a food processor first. A food processor being one of those things I always say I'm going to pick up and then never do.

and gurrrrl you don't need a food processor! i've never used one, just the pastry cutter thingamagig. it's super easy to do, but like i said, not always the prettiest thing in the world!
