I'm impressed! You got a lot. Is it because of your hands that you use the prepared crusts? I can make pie crust by hand in about 2 minutes but I have no problem rolling it out. I'll be making 3 pies Wednesday- coconut cream, pumpkin hardly anyone will touch and apple cranberry. Cranberries at Aldi's here were just $1 a bag so I bought 3. Happy Thanksgiving!

Nan, yes it's due to hand issues. I made my own for years. Very difficult for me now. Pillsbury crusts were on sale @ $2, I used coupons, so final cost was $1.50, cheaper than Aldi's @ $1.89.
