How many years ago this tradition started I don’t remember. But I do remember HOW it started. Carol (from work) told me several years ago right before Thanksgiving that she had never made a pie. WHAT?? It’s easy! “Ok, let’s get together and show me how to make a pie.” Two others joined in on the conversation and the pie making tradition was started.
Fast forward to Tuesday (several years later), and we still get together every year the week before Thanksgiving to make apple pies. Except for one time, we’ve always used the same recipe. It needs to stay easy because the focus is now more on wine, appetizers and conversation.
