when i was a young girl, my momma would trade home-made pies for work done around the house. i remember the bathroom being tiled, the basement being carpeted, the wood floors being re-finished, all paid for with pies.*
she would often let me make my own mini pie with the left-over crust and filling. it was my favorite thing to do and now tops the warm-fuzzy memory list. yesterday my sister and i spent the day cooking at my momma's and it was time to pass on the tradition...

the filling of choice...

still a bit too hot...

the perfect size for sharing...

basically anything wrapped in crust is delicious!
*memories have been known to fail (remember the james frey fiasco?), so please take this as a disclaimer. there may have been more than pies exchanged for all that work.
like homemade soup. or bread. or cookies. i don't know.
