Merry Christmas!

This year, I opted to make post cards for the holidays because I simply didn't have the time to make pop-up cards for everyone. Still, there was a limited print run, due to printer problems. Sorry if you didn't get one... We still wish you the best this season!

Above are four different designs and below is the reverse (more or less) for each one.

Apple Pie 2.0

My second apple pie! This is way better than one I made two years ago. The dough is dense and doughy and the crust crunchy. Some people may prefer a flakier crust, but this is just the way I like it since it doesn't have shortening. (Butter is best in my book.) Also, the filling is well spiced with the right amount of liquid, unlike last time.

The crust is Saveur's Buttery Pie Dough, with additional vodka to moisten the dough. The rest is a blend of other recipes.
