Not Martha


It’s very cold here so Oatmeal Dinner (at Posie Gets Cozy) looks incredibly appealing. I love steel cut oats and usually eat them plain with a few dried cranberries, so the idea of toasting the grains in butter before simmering them seems very decadent.

Megnut’s post Thanksgiving pie report and she declares this recipe by Karen Barker the best pie crust recipe ever, I must try it. I’m glad Meg reported that she didn’t use a food processor to make the dough, I don’t have one and will be making it by hand as well.

    I can vouch for it making a yummy pie crust… but I know it as Julia Child’s recipe. (See Mastering the Art of French Cooking, pastry chapter) The fraisage makes it flaky.

    I’ll try the blind baking thing next time… I use ceramic pie dishes and the bottom crust is never crispy enough.
