The Day I made my First Pie - quite a while ago! :)

Today I made my FIRST PIE! =)

I have been wanting to do this for quite a while!
Today, I DID IT!  :) 
I hope it will taste good.  We're using it for the girls promotion into the next grade celebration tonight with ice cream!  Yummmy!!!!  :)
1
First I'm letting my "pre bought" crusts get to room temperature. (takes 15 mins)
2
I have all my stuff set out and ready!
3
Wow, I can open a can of peaches!  LOL!
4
Cutting up the peaces to smaller sizes.  They were in halves.
5
I hope that works out nicely.
6
Seperate the peaches from the juice.
To the juice, add:  1 cup sugar as I am doing here.
7
This is so fun!
8
Then add 2 TBS of cornstarch to thicken it.
9
This one is just for "Aunt Ruthie" and "Beulah!"  LOL! :)
Madi Grace laughed so hard!  (She was my photographer!)
10
OK back to business ;)  Add 1/8 tsp nutmeg
11
Add 1/8 stick butter
This is what it all looks like added together.
12
Cook on low until it thickens.  Then, add your peaches back in.
13
We love lots of pictures, can't yall tell?
14
Still cooking to get it to thicken...
15
Placing my bottom crust in my pan...
16
Wow, that was easy! ;)
17
Cutting out hearts from my top crust.
2 reasons - it will be pretty :) and it allows the steam to come out while cooking.
18
Oh, what a blessing to make a pie for my family!
19
Here's the yummies to pour in!
20
Pie, oh my!  Yummy Pie!
21
"Fluting" the edges of my crust, or trying to!  That part was hard and I didn't do so well!
Practice will make it better!  :)
22
..here it is before it goes into the oven...
23
Oh yeah, I brushed milk over it as one of my "Sugar Pie Sistas" suggested..
and sprinkled some sugar on top as she suggested as well.
24
This is supposed to help the crust be crunchier, I think she said ;)
25
Edges getting dark, time to cover them with foil.
This happened quickly so watch that pie like a hawk!
26
That was a pain to get that on there right!  LOL
27
The pie is DONE!  At least I think/hope it is!!!!
28
I made my FIRST PIE!
I hope it blesses my sweet family!
