|Grandma made such beautiful pies. One day I asked her, "How do you get such beautiful pies with the crimps around the edge so even?"|
"Well, it's a family secret," she said. "But if you promise not to tell, I'll let you in on it."
"Okay," I said. "Tell me!"
"Well, first, I roll out the dough, making sure it is flat and even. Then I cut out the bottom layer and carefully put in the pie plate and make sure it is firmly against the sides of the plate.
"Then I slowly pour in the filling, making sure it's not too full.
"Next, I cut out the top layer and carefully put it over the filling.
"Finally, I take out my teeth and just run them around the edge of the pie crust, and they make the nicest even impressions you ever did see!"
