Home made pies

For Thanksgiving this year I was in charge of making the pies! I was so excited because I got to make everything from scratch. It is something I've wanted to do for a long time. I went on to find some yummy ones.

I asked my family what their favorite pies were and my mom said coconut cream (she cooked everything else so I wanted to please her and say thanks) and the other was a fruit pie. The last was my favorite - chocolate cream.

I had apples in the fridge so I made an apple pie - I even made the lattice covering for the pie and was quite proud. 

 Everyone complimented the pies because they really did taste wonderful! I will need to work on the crust a little and the chocolate needs more cornstarch in it to thicken better. But chocolate goop is still yummy. This was my first all from scratch Thanksgiving. Maybe some day I'll be brave enough to do the whole thing.
