Q: What’s your favorite type of pie?
A: For a couple years now, I’ve been learning my mother’s pie crust recipe from across the pond. I’m originally from Washington, DC, so of course as soon as I moved to Scotland I realized how much I missed it; she essentially just uses pastry dough. It’s incredible. Especially when she bakes it in one of those tins with the holes all over it. I don’t mind if it’s pumpkin or apple or chicken pot pie, but that crust is essential.
