Here’s what I used to do my baking today — all of my mom’s old tools — the rolling pin that clicks when it spins, sifter, Pyrex bowl and pie plates. I used these many times growing up, but this is their first Thanksgiving at my house.
Actually, that pastry blender was my grandmother’s — that I’ve had for a few years now. They seemed to work just fine. Below, the Holy Trinity of Thanksgiving pies — pecan, apple and pumpkin.
