I am seriously trying to save money!! The other night, I really wanted chicken popeye, but had no pie dough! Rather than running out to the store and buying the pre-made stuff, I decided to make my own! I have watched countless episodes of Martha Stewart Live where she made her own pie dough, and tried my best to remember all her tips and tricks. I decided to make a double batch (why not? had all the stuff out) to save time and money. Click here to see my pie dough recipe! Below are some money saving pie crust ideas!!
- Make a double recipe, use one today, freeze the other in a tin foil pie pan. By Christmas, you will be ready for a baking marathon and have some money left in your grocery budget!
- When your favorite fruit is on sale, make ahead some pie and freeze them!! Just think about your favorite Mrs. Smith pies, any of those varieties will work just fine! Great for when your mother-in-law drops in unexpectedly.
- Freeze your extra pieces of pie dough. Get the cookie cutters out and let the kids have fun!
