Apparently, if you tell your friends and family that you will be baking pie for a year, they will buy you lots of pie related stuff.
As evidence, here are just a few of the things I received for Christmas (there were more ingredients than pictured.)
Probably the coolest thing is the pastry board at the bottom of the pile. It has sizing guidelines for a variety of different pies and tart doughs. But even better, it hugs the counter edge so the pastry board doesn't slide-really excellent design. Only problem is I'm not sure where to store it since it is BIG.
And the girls were not forgotten. They received a baking set from Grandma (notice the tiny rolling pins) and an adorable little kitty print apron.
