Aren't those husbands of ours great, Kadesma?! Kim did most of the chopping and mixing. Between the two of us, we made some killer oyster dressing.

Emmm oyster dressing is so good. I use to make it for my dad whenever he wanted a roast chicken. My mom and DH look like this at the mere mention os oysters I love them myself so I envy your dressing. And yes, you and I both are lucky to have such wonderful Dh's. Glad your day was wonderful.

I did that myself this year. It's a first for all of us, as PeppA and her Mom have always bought the pies, pre-cooked, from the store. I haven't made a pie in about 10 years. I bought to pie crusts, and just mixed up the pumpkin filling. There is now ONE piece left, and I've put the Fear of Dad into the kids about making sure Mom gets that piece.

I still have several cans of pumpkin left. I may have to get some more pie crusts.

I love the Pillsbury pie crusts!!!! I used to be able to make a darn good pie crust and as with many things......if you don't keep doing it, you lose it!!!! 99% of people really can't tell if you really made it or not; unless you tell them.

Thumbs up

Constance, I don't see anything wrong with using ready made pie crusts. My mom used them for our pumpkin pies. She made the filling from scratch and nobody could tell the difference.

I am another fan of the Pillsbury pie crusts, as is my mom, who can make the real thing beautifully.

Pillsbury does it better than I do, so that's an end to it.

I do agree that most of us do not have the big flour board space but still want to enjoy a slice of pie. I see no reason for "rolling" that dough. Why not just get it to the crumb stage and press it into the pie pan? I did this with some pecan flour and it worked real good. I didn't want to waste a bit of that valueable stuff.

I checked the freezer section of my local store...no Pilspury crusts...just some other preformed crusts. Oh well. Another food unavaiable in Canada.

Yeah, you may not have Pilsbury crust, but you do have Red Rose tea, and we don't. And that's an exelent tea.
