Have a pleasant day everyone.
Early evening sorted Campagnolo brakes, derailleurs, pedals and shifters yesterday early evening.
Things have piled up!
then washed hands throughly and put on baking hat.
NY cheesecake was cool to refrigerate by the time the bars close up
pumpkin pie cooling.

my crust trick is to freeze butter and shortening then grate it, weigh in grams then add it in.
so much easier to confirm a dough that is not overworked. Metric is much easier.

Happy Thanksgiving to my "other" family - the ones I ride with!
If someone tells you that you have enough bicycles and you don't need any more, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Most of us likely know what a PITA pie crust can be so.....

My wife, an accomplished baker, cook, etc. from a long line of Kansas farming families said she thinks this is brilliant genius and will be incorporating it into her process.

She normally works from the seat of her pants with Betty Crocker for the specs so this is a big deal to get her attention.

Tx for sharing this secret, many guard them with their life.

A great sentiment. My BF pals definitely constitute my "other family". Happy Thanksgiving to all!
