Lady Grey loves a little fancy added to her everyday. Take pie for example. Our fall feature from today shows a pretty little pie adorned with a leaves, like this one:
You might ask, “Who in the world has time for this pinnable yet totally unrealistic pretty?” Only Martha Stewart, I presume. But alas, we did a little sleuthing and as it turns out, Williams Sonoma offers a cheat way to bring the fancy into your holidays for the price of a few Starbucks lattes. Yep. Piecrust cutters. In leaf shapes. Thanksgiving pies will never be the same. Your mother-in-law will be so impressed when your dessert spread looks like this. And then you can email me and say, “Lady Grey, thank you for your easy fancy idea.” And I’ll reply, “I know, right?” Except in a much more eloquent way.
Do not attempt this for your wedding. Unless you are handing off these molds to a baker. DO attempt for a shower, engagement party, holiday festivities or maybe a bake off. Yes, most definitely if you’re in a bake off. Certainly you’ll deserve a few extra slices for a job well done. Impressing and delighting with ease. That’s our motto. Or as we like to call it, “Easy-Fancy.”
(And you know that whole, homemade crust situation? Neither do I. Homemade pies with pre-made pie dough. Easy-fancy, ladies. Easy-fancy.)
