Vintage Crochet Lines

About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

More my cup of tea

The weather is what I'm talking about...sunny, and 60 degrees....I'm making my husband a
" sho co lat " pie, his favorite, I have the crust in the oven. First day on the new job and all for him....
I have a question for all of you pie bakers out there.....when you have left over dough....
can you freeze it and re-use another time.?
Sometimes, I will roll it and sprinkle it with sugar and when it comes out cinamon and the guys can
sanck on the extra. It's not enough for a full pie, but I could use this batch to make chicken
pot pie covers ups.  
I had wanted to go outside and plant, but with this old bumbstead knee of mine, rather difficult to get around and I cannot get on the ground for sure...we'd have to call the tow truck to get me up again. Getting old, has it's moments, this is not one of them. Moving about smartley today around the homestead....
Hoping you have a beautiful day..whatever your season...

Hi Faith, I am so excited your husband is starting his new job. I hope he really likes it. I have to agree with you about the weather..this is my kind of temp...but the rains that usually come can just stay away. When is your craft show..we want to see pics. Blessings

Mmm,pie! And chocolate,too! I don't know about freezing the dough but it seems like you should be able too. Maybe in pie tins so all you would have to do is pop in the oven? Good luck.

Can't help you on the freezing dough but I use leftover dough and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on it and cook it for snacks too.
