My First Pie!

Today I was really bored and I decided to make a pie! The pie turned out really god if i do say so myself. mom says that i have to make it for thanksgiving now...I got a crust recipe off of all along with a recipe for the ingredients. I used mixed Marionberries and boysenberries instead of blackberries and the crust was super easy to make. mom was trying to get me to use a pre made one so i wouldnt mess it up but it turned out great! im so proud of myself. lol. Heres the recipe so you can try it:
Crust (doubled ):
1 egg
6 tablespoons of sugar
2 pinches of salt
3 cups of flour
1 cup of butter
mix egg and sugar in small bowl. In separate bowl combine salt and flour. soften butter until slightly melted and put into bowl with salt and flour. add in egg mixture. knead dough into 2 smooth balls and put in refridgerator for 15 min.
heat the oven to 450 degrees F
4 cups of berries (thawed)
3 tablespoons of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of lemon juice (optional)
after dough is ready, grease a 9 inch pie pan. Roll one of the dough balls to about 1/8 the of an inch and line the bottom of the pan.
Mix all of your ingredients for the filling in a bowl and then spoon into the pie crust.
take the other ball of dough and roll the same as the bottom crust and lay ontop of the pie. cut slits throughout the top.
Bake the pie for 15 minutes then reduce the heat to 350 untill golden brown (should take around 10 minutes) then cool and enjoy!


K. So for Girl's Camp, Tenley, Mandy and I made Disney Princess shirts because the camp theme was Princess Academy. Tenley was
Princess Belle, Mandy was Princess
Aurora, and I was Princess Ariel
(chosen for their hair color). First we went to Michaels and got shirts and later went to my house to tie die (thanks to mandy's tie dye kit) then decorated at Tenley's house and my house. On the front was the title of the movie the princess was in, on the back was their name and an item that represented them, I did the items and writing. On Tenley's shirt we drew (traced. lol) a rose, Mandy's was a magic wand and mine as you can tell in the picture was a sea shell and triton. I took the pictures of tenley's and mandy's before mine was finished. :( Camp was so much fun and 4th year pictures and camp pics will be coming soon!
