The gang came out for some Labour Day family time.
And I made pies for dessert - lemon meringue and butterscotch cream.
In our family there are many ways to show love - but cooking and baking special dishes for them is close to the top of the list.
and judging by the "ohs and yums", there was a lot of lovin going on here yesterday :)
I always follow my mother's recipe, a variation of the one on the Tenderflake lard box. She added 2 tsp brown sugar and a tsp of baking powder. A never fail recipe!
I make my lemon pie from a box - so simple and delicious. Someday, I'd like to try a fresh lemon recipe.
But, here's the pièce de résistance, Nana's Butterscotch Pie from Warm Vanilla Sugar, a lovely recipe blog. I love the story behind the pie and intend to adopt the title for my own - as I'm a Nannie now too!! Yay!
and with that, here's a sweet little picture of the babykins who made me one!
Cuddled up with my "baby boy" - her Uncle Jimmy.
Labour Day love indeed.
