My mother says my aunt was able to twirl her pies around “because she was such an aficionado that she had very little excess crust, i.e. less weight to pull it down.”
She also says, “I know exactly what you’re talking about—the same thing happened to me—I’d have these really pretty crimped edges and they’d flatten out.”
So…a good thing to know before the contest! I will NOT twirl my contest pies!
