Bettina har ordet

Apple-tree, apple-tree, crowned with delight,
Give me your fruit for a pie if you will;——
Crusty I'll make it, and juicy and light!——
Give me your treasure to mate with my skill!

Ny månad och äppeltider. Av Bettina får vi lära oss hur man gör ett perfekt pajskal. I England lärde  jag mig en gång att man ska spola sina händer med kallt vatten, innan man tar i en pajdeg, är det vinter, kan man stå utomhus när man gör degen.

Some of Bettina's Pastry Rules
One—All the materials must be cold.
Two—Always roll one way and on one side of the pastry.
Three—Shortening should be handled as little as possible.
Four—Dough should be mixed with a knife and not touched with the hands.
Five—Shortening should be cut in with a knife.
Six—Cook pastry in a hot oven having the greatest heat at the bottom so that it may rise before browning. Crust is done when it slips from the pan.
