Thanks so much for the editor's pick, A & M and Merrill, thank you for making my pie and for thinking the crust smelled like the best cheese straw ever, it means a lot! : )
SallyCan September 23, 2010
All of these pies look so fabulous, and it's great to see all of the different recipes for pie crusts. With all of these entries, I feel honored for the EP, thank you.

Thanks so much for the EP! I really appeciate the kind words and am really glad you enjoyed the pie!
MrsWheelbarrow September 23, 2010
Thank you for the Editor's Pick! I ate that entire pie myself as my husband is "studying" for his annual physical exam and won't eat any desserts.

Thanks, TiggyBee, for testing my pie. I hope you like it! I can't volunteer to test this week because I will be away from any kitchens for a bit now. All these pies look wonderful!

it's hard for me to understand why a recipe that has you make your own pork stock, track down a source for fresh leaf lard, grind your own pork, and build a hot water lard crust, would go begging. However, I am scheduled to make my own recipe the weekend of Oct. 2 in response to a comment/question from SallyCan, and I will take detailed notes about process and time requirements (I did say it required a whole weekend) and put them into comments. I am developing a list of non kosher carnivores to invite and want, for the first time in my life, to make a savory ice cream or ice as an accompaniment. Please send your ideas. I can make this into a pickle if you want.
