When they were passing out the "baking gene", I was overlooked. But thankfully, DD received an extra helping. Cookies, cakes from scratch, brownies...you name it, she can bake it.
And now, we can add pumpkin pie to the list.
A couple of weeks ago, she saw a note that our church is providing pies for an inner city meal site. "Mom, I signed up to make a pumpkin pie," she told me.
OK, I thought. This could be interesting. While she has done a lot of baking, she has never made a pumpkin pie.
Last night, she made three. We even get to keep one.
Quite appropriately, my sole task was to pay for the ingredients. And conduct extensive taste testing.
