Saturday Surprise - In the Kitchen


Can you remember learning to bake or cook? My early recollections are of standing at the kitchen counter beside my mother and watching her hands work making pie. I loved how the flour would get swallowed up in the dough as she gently worked it with her hands, how she'd so precisely prepare the top crust and lay it aside while she mixed the fruit with sugar and a thickener. My favourite part was when the top crust was carefully placed on top and Mom used her fingers to pinch around the edge so precisely. She'd always save a bit of the dough, roll it out, sprinkle it with sugar and bake it with the pie for a special treat. This fabric journal page is my entry for the Saturday Surprise challenge this week.

Heather, fabulous page! You know as I was reading your post I was thinking of how my mom used to make a little extra dough treat for me with cinnamon and sugar on it! What a great memory! Thanks! Marva
