MAKING THE DOUGH
This part was fun. I really felt like I was doing something genius--doesn't take much to get me going! It was so easy, I will never purchase pie crust at the store again.
They called this part the "Method". This is where your masterpiece really starts to come together. In just three easy steps you are almost there. All you have to do is: spread, chop and fold.
BAKE & SERVE
At this point everyone is excited and all we want to do is sample our creations! Thank goodness the baking time is no more than 45 minutes and the Park Hyatt lets us pass the time with champagne.
Delicious!! I can't wait to make this for my friends. They will be so impressed.
