Adventures in Pie Baking

Adam made the pie dough with my mom Tuesday night. I brought it back here yesterday so we could work on it this morning before heading back to my parents' later for Thanksgiving dinner. There were 4 balls of dough,  2 for 2 pumpkin pies, 2 for the apple pie. Well, as Adam put it, we were 3 for 4 or 75%, meaning: "WE PASSED!"
I don't know why but the dough just kept sticking, no matter how many times I turned it and added more flour to the counter and the rolling pin. So we decided to scrap the last one that didn't work out (we ended up running out of flour anyway) and make a crumb topping for the apple pie.

Here's what our dining table looks like when we clear out the kitchen to work

And the (hopefully) tasty pies

and the homemade whipped cream

We followed the Libby pumpkin pie recipe on the back of the can, and used Adam's grandma's Blue Ribbon apple pie recipe.

I said it yesterday and I will say it again- I can't wait for Thanksgiving dinner!
