We made this recipe since it was specified for the crust of our vinegar pie (above). It is a version of semi-puff pastry, but with fewer turns. Unlike most puff pastry, it wasn't horribly time consuming (start to finish less than an hour), and it still came out flaky with good layers. Emilee really did all the work on this one (she was trying to overcome a previous traumatic dough experience) so it was a piece of cake for me!

Today reminded me in a lot ways of being in college and living with Emilee. We spent a lot of the day sitting in the living room, eating Tootise Pops and working on our respective studies. I learned more than I ever would want to know about skin diseases (Em's in med school). Then we made a huge bowl of popcorn for dinner! Plus, we made pie together, which was really fun. It was a nice, relaxing day.
