i love the cutter you used--unbaked and baked it looks spectacular as does your pastry. it tempts me to go back to making it by hand!

Thanks Rose. Coming from you, it's really nice. I'm going to keep going with my hands and forego the machines where I can. We'll see what happens.

Kim: I made the best crust ever, and it's thanks to YOU! I was so inspired by your tutorial that I made my pastry by hand (partly) and it is perfect!! Do look at my blog because I give you full credit!!

I went to see. Your crust was beautiful. Isn't it satisfying to make things with your hands (except for the manicure).

Wow! I love all that you said! Smear? That is what I was try not to do. I think your experience will serve to help me to better learn to make dough. I think the freeze-dried elderberries I have left will translate better into medicinal teas. Your pie looks so pretty in your top picture.

Hi Kim: What a lovely pie! Thanks for the great tutorial. I have used Rose's plastic bag method but you have inspired me to try to hand method. I like the cream cheese pastry but really prefer her butter pie crusts. Sometimes I have trouble getting the dough to hold together, as though it needs more liquid. I may do it the "smearing" way and see if it makes a difference. One thing has always dissauded me is my long fingernails--I hate the feeling of flour and butter under them! I am baking my pie today. I will probably get out the food mill and strain the seeds. If I don't I'm afraid my husband won't like the pie at all!

Kimberlie, what a gorgeous pie! I'm so glad you made the pastry by hand. I also mix in a bowl and then smear the dough on the bench and this technique produces a far superior pastry than any machine could. I completely relate to your elderberry seed woes. Aren't they distracting? I won't be making this pie. Elderberries are uncommon here, even the dried ones. Yours is a beauty! And thanks for the wonderful pastry tutorial!

Beautiful pie! I love that technique of smearing the butter. My husband asked "Aren't you going to strain out the seeds?" which might not be a bad idea. Good to know the flavor is nice with dried as they are available all year round in the health food store

Goodness the elderberries are soooo, so tiny! Engaging post reading your experiences. Flower cut out on top of pie is nice :) I make pastry either way, does depend if food processor is out

Great tutorial Kim! I guess I'm personally sold on the plastic bag method as it works so well for me but to see all of your steps so beautifully executed was a joy to see and read. I can't find Elderberries in my area but the pictures you gave us resemble purple currents. As always, I enjoyed your work; HAPPY BAKING!

I always make the pastry by hand because I am too lazy to bring out the food processor. lol! I'm glad to see how dried elderberries look like from your photos! I think using the dried berries does make the pie looks drier isn't it? I like how you cut a flower in the centre. So simple and sweet.
