November’s Cooking Class: PIES
(or using the shortening/oil in your food storage)

This was originally posted on our Relief Society blog a decade ago, but that is really no longer accessible, and I want to remember this fun evening, so here it is on my blog. In 2009 we spent our monthly activities learning how to use the items in our food storage. November’s theme was oil/shortening. Maybe I’ll get around to sharing all of the other things we learned that year as well. We’ll see!

We started with a demonstration on how to make empanadas. Thanks, Jennifer!
