Pie crust is another great use for the food processor. Fit the bowl with the dough blade and pulse the butter and fat together until crumbly. Then, add ice water bit by bit until a sticky dough forms.
(pretty good for my first real pie crust, huh?)
And again, we were a little pressed for time, so I just whipped up PW's pie filling in a tupperware and brought it with us. We baked the pie at Jake's while we were eating dinner.
"Required baking time seems to vary widely with this recipe. Sometimes it takes 50 minutes; sometimes it takes 75!"
And, indeed, the pie took about 75 minutes. It was soft and beautiful and had a really nice flavor.
Happy (late) Thanksgiving, everyone.
