All Butter Flaky Pie Crust
Last Saturday was the civil wedding of one of my best and oldest friend. I was one of the bridesmaids. We met when we were 14 years old. I just realized that we've been friends for 18 years ... This is scary how time flies! We've been through a lot of first times and laughs and tears together during those all these years.

We don't talk or see each other as much as we used to a few years ago but I'm so happy that we are still part of each others' lives. I think that it's not easy to keep your friends through the years especially when you met really young.

You grow up, you change, you make new friends, you lose each other and then you reunite. I think that it's difficult to find the good balance but when you do after so many years you know that it's a True Friend.

This is really funny because I learnt at their engagement party that I was a bridesmaid. All the evening I was intrigued because she wanted me to be on the future bridesmaids pictures and then one of the bridesmaids was talking about what we should do for the wedding etc ... I was thinking that they all wanted to be nice to me and to prevent me from feeling rejected or something ...

And then we were having dinner and I was sitting close to my friend. We were having a conversation and suddenly she came up with " I hope you will as a Bridesmaid ! ". Big Silence. Awkward. Me: " Am I a Bridesmaid ? ". She looked surprised and said, " Of course you are ". Me: " Great but I didn't know because you didn't ask me ". Her: " Of course I did remember, I asked you at that dinner a few months ago! " Me: " No I would remember ... ". My friend looked embarrassed and we all started laughing, she came next to me, hugged me and asked me: " Would you be my bridesmaid ? ". Me laughing " Of Course I will ". This is just how my friend is and that's why I love her. She told me that it was such an evidence for her that she really thought that she asked me!

I am really sad because I had to tell her that I might not be able to be there for the church wedding and the big party and that really breaks my heart. I was almost crying on the phone. The thing is, I am starting a new job ten days prior to the wedding day who will be in the South of France.

In my new airline if you want to ask for a day off you need to do it 6 weeks prior the D-Day. So I tried my best to ask them during my training in February and my flights in April ... But I will have my schedule only when I will start working ... I am really sad about it. I want to see my friend in her wedding dress ... This is the main thing I hate about my work. Missing on important family and friends life events .

Other than that I made pie crust. I am really proud of myself. I used to failed and being scared by pie crusts of all kind for years. During my internship, I asked them if they could show me how to make basic pie crust.

Then I came back home and I failed at my first attempt. And then it happened. A few weeks ago I succeeded at pâte sablée, which is my favorite crust. And then I succeeded at this pie crust which is now my second favorite pie crust ... It's flaky, crunchy, buttery.... My mom and my brother loved it. You will too !!

  3. Stir in ice water, one tablespoon at a time until the dry ingredients are incorporated, just until the dough comes together, Be really careful to not overmix it! The butter should be still visible. If it's too dry and crumbly, do not hesitate to add a little more water.
