Okay...So it was a good idea!

Feeling very homemakingish...I decided the granddaughters and I would create masterpieces of cherry and apple pies! We donned our aprons, put out our ingredients and "tools", turned on the ovens and voila...started the creation of the most wonderful pies in the world. The measurements were exact, we even had the "dusting" of flour on our faces, and the anticipation of these glorious pies were more than we could stand.

To make it even better, we planned a day at the Dinosaur Museum while the pies "cooled". When we got home, we quickly had a quick meal and then set down to our beautiful creations!

Have you ever had a cherry pie that once you cut into grew back to its normal size??? (We had whipped cream/sweetened condensed milk mixture on the bottom w/cherries on top). It was supposed to stand by itself (so I threw it into the freezer to harden). The apple pie was WAY too cinnamony and a little underdone. The pie crusts (which were fun to make but wouldn't win a beauty contest) actually were okay.

What was important was that the girls had fun, the house smelled great, but I'll probably stick to pumpkin pies!
