Bonus pie crust recipe
(not because you have a kitchen, but because this pie crust is so good it ALMOST only exists in the Mind of God; also because Thanksgiving; also because REASONS).
1/2 cup butter
2 generous cups flour
5 egg yolks + 1T COLD water
1/2 t salt (only) if for a savoury pie;
1 - 2 T sugar if for a dessert pie
flour for dusting the board
eggwhites/milk for glazing shiny awesomeness
Cut flour, salt and/or sugar and butter together till crumbly; set aside
Beat egg yolks and water gently till smooth, then add 2-4 ice cubes, depending on how big the yolks were, to be sure that what you add to the four mix is cold as the glance of a jaded whore, and runnier than yolks alone.
Fish out the icecubes before they've added more than about 1 additional T of melt-off to the yolks.
Mix briskly till just folded in, and, working quickly so the dough doesn't get too warm, dust the board and roll out.
Makes two open pies or one 2-crust pie shell.
I may have to borrow an oven to try it out! Are you making pie for Thanksgiving? What's your favorite?
