A few weeks ago I had the privilege of baking several apple pies with my daughter and the three grandgirls. See the delicious result!
We had willing hands. Willow, Rosalie, and Sweetpea each took a turn with the pastry cutter. It was apparently a lot of fun.
It didn’t take long for two of them to get bored, though. Soon they chomped down an apple and wandered away.
But we had one loyal helper who stayed through to the end! She kept busy with that piecrust dough while her mommy and grandma peeled and chopped and seasoned apples. All of a sudden we realized she’d been kneading that dough for probably 20 minutes! Making us rather afraid we’d have crust as tender as cardboard later. See Rosalie’s sweet innocence?
So she carefully watched while the chopped apples were distributed.
She was right there to poke holes in the crust.
I should end this with a photo of three little girls enjoying their slice of pie, but alas, I didn’t take any, and the pies disappeared in a blink! Aren’t family work days the best???
