Let’s Review the November Baking Challenge

November 2021 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Cranberry Apple Slab Pie. Oh my PIE! Cranberry and apples sitting in homemade pie dough filled our kitchens this past month. My team and I loved seeing all these free-form pies come together with many of them gracing your Thanksgiving tables. There were rectangle shapes, circle slab pies, full pies in a pie dish, lattice crust tops, full crust tops, thick dough strips, pie dough braids, and more. For many of you, this was the first time attempting a lattice pie dough design and even making a from-scratch pie. A challenge to many if there ever was one. 🙂

Thank you so much for participating! We gathered as many cranberry apple slab pie emailed photo entries as we could and include them below.
