We love our annual Pie Extravaganza which takes place the Wednesday before Thanksgiving every year here at Southmoreland on the Plaza. 

If you are considering a cherry pie for one of your Thanksgiving desserts (and who wouldn't) here are some tips on how to do it, courtesy of Mark Reichle, our innkeeper and chef. 

 
The video is rich with tips on rolling out a light and flakey dough with lots of suggestions on working with chilled butter, adding your ice water, and shaping & cutting your dough!
