Talking Granny's Pie Crust

Granny made such beautiful pies! One day, I asked her, “How do you get such beautiful pies with the crimps around the edge so even?”

“Well, it's a family secret,” she said. “But if you promise not to tell, I'll let you in on it.”
“Okay,” I said. “Tell me!”

“Well, first, I roll out the dough, making sure it is flat and even. Then I cut out the bottom layer and carefully put it in the pie plate and make sure it is firmly against the sides of the plate.”

“Then I slowly pour in the filling, making sure it's not too full. Next, I cut out the top layer and carefully put it over the filling.”

“Finally, I take out my teeth and just run them around the edge of the pie crust and they make the nicest, even impressions you ever did see!”

I guess that explains why everyone was complaining about the Polident aftertaste in granny's pies.

Gosh----I wish we could all get together for a drink(whether if you preferred coke or some vino) after 5 pm some day----the stories and jokes that we could all share---is that what they mean by sinking your teeth into something?
