Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and if you’re stumped on what to bring, you can’t go wrong with pie. But! There are so many different types of pie! It can be overwhelming. Luckily, The Stars are here for you; they’re here to answer this most pressing question: what Thanksgiving pie should you make, based on your zodiac sign?
Before we get into the pies themselves, I want to share this pie crust recipe, which can be used and/or modified for any of the pies in this quiz. (Note: This recipe makes two crusts — so you can do a pie that has a top and a bottom crust, OR you can do two pies that just have bottom crusts! If you’re wanting inspiration for the second pie, consider making a pie based on your moon sign! You can figure out your moon sign here.)
What you’ll need:
- 2 ½ cups of flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 2 sticks of butter, frozen then grated
- 5-ish Tablespoons of chilled vodka
So, first things first: put the bottle of vodka and the two sticks of butter in the freezer. Go do something fun and then forget that you’re supposed to be baking. Remember all at once. Panic. Dump the flour, sugar, and salt into a bowl and frantically grate the frozen butter over top of it.
Rub the butter into the dry ingredients using the tips of your fingers, and add the vodka as needed to help the dough come together. The goal here is to keep the dough (and the butter in it) as cold as possible, so if you have the means, you can use a food processor or even a really high-powered blender instead of your fingers.
Divide the dough in half, shape the halves into discs, then wrap in plastic and rest in your fridge while you make the filling (1 hour, at least; but, up to 3 days! So you can make this ahead, if you want to cut down on some of that panic).
