Sweet Indulgences Sunday #30

So, last week, I tried my hand at making a pie crust for the first time. After I posted my intentions here, I decided that it was time for me to invest in a food processor before I got started on this endeavor. I got a good deal on one and brought it home to begin the process. I could not for the life of me get the food processor to work. Frustrated, I ended up making the crust by hand with a pastry cutter. Then, when I was almost done and was wrapping the dough in plastic wrap to chill, my husband walked into the kitchen and discovered that I didn't have the bowl and lid lined up correctly on the food processor. It works now! But, I was so frustrated...

Anyway, the crusts turned out just fine with my added elbow (and shoulder) grease. Here's the little pecan pies I made from a recipe from Mini Pies by Christy Beaver and Morgan Greenseth. So, I'm trying to have a working relationship with this food processor. I even had a little trouble this morning when I attempted to use it to make some cinnamon roll muffins. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon. What have you been up to this week?
