Turning out the dough, now with added ice water, onto the table top.
Our group's pie dough. Notice the huge smears of butter. The sad face on the little one is to show that it is smaller than the others.
Apples waiting to go in the pies. I peeled, cored and sliced 2 1/2 flats of apples for the pies. We did one communal filling recipe. I was constantly impressed with the large volumes of ingredients during my week there.
My crusts ready for filling.
We did a lattice crust for the apple pie. Not traditional, but I was happy to be able to try this.
