Christmas Eve blackberry.

It was a bitterly cold day in the thumb of Michigan--perfect for pie baking!


A lesson from mother (Chief Pie Expert in Residence) to son (Apprentice in Overalls).



First, she modeled.



Then, she provided guided instruction. (You can tell
that the teacher in me is ridiculously excited by this process!)


Then the Apprentice in Overalls tried his hand at some independent practice.


A beautiful blackberry pie, complete with traditional
design used for years by the Chief Pie Expert in Residence.


A delicious process to be taught and practiced for generations to come.
