Great tip!

I wanted to share this great tip before you started making your Thinksgiving pies!Grandma's Pies
Grannie made such beautiful pies! One day, I asked her"How do you get such beautiful pies with the crimps around the edge so even?"
"It's a family secret" she said "So you must promise not to tell"
I roll out the dough, then cut a bottom layer and carefully put it in the pie plate. Then I slowly pour the filling, making sure it's not too full. Next cut the top layer and put it over the filling. Finally, I take out my teeth and just run them around the edge of the pie crust and they make the nicest even impression you ever did see.

My jaw just dropped and I'm having a hard time picking it up. I have to admit I thought I had heard all the "tricks" to making pie crust, but that is one trick that had heretofore been left unsaid. So funny!
