Making pastry

Following on from comments after my apple pie post, I dredged these pictures up from quite a while back - August '05, actually. I did them to help out a lad on the forum who wanted to make his own pies, but didn't know where to start, so I helped him begin his pastry making. Bittersweet memories, really, as he is no longer with us, but it made me smile when I remembered our conversations about pies and pastry! Anyway, these were done for him, and I wondered if they would be of help to Moominmama and brightandnew, and others; I hope they are. Excuse the dog LOL

Thank you so much, MrsL. How kind of you to repost this :)

I had a go at making the apple pie today - it didn't turn out too bad! The bottom was a little soggy, but it tasted fine and my husband and kids ate it up without even mentioning the soggy bits - and have asked for me to make it again, so they must have liked it :D

I'm feeling rather chuffed with myself at the moment!
