Pies, Pies and more Pies

It's RAGBRAI week here in Iowa, and I had the opportunity to help make homemade pies for my cousin's booth in Elkhart today.  We made a variety of fruit pies for her to sell.  The pies consisted of peach, apple, cherry, blueberry, mixed berry, rhubarb, & strawberry rhubarb.  It was a lot of fun to do this project together, but a ton of work too.  We ended up with 107 pies!!!  Each one had was completely homemade from the crust to the filling to the topping.  Here is a look at a few of the pies while they were cooling.......

Each pie was cut into 7 pieces and individually packaged.  WOW!  That was a lot of pieces of pie.  I did not help at the booth, but it sounded like she sold all but 20 pieces of pie.  That's pretty amazing!  We had a great time making the pies, but I'm pretty sure that we won't try a project like this again anytime soon!  :-)
