Merry Christmas To Us...

We've been waiting several weeks now for the die press for our three-inch tart pies to arrive and NOW IT IS HERE, PEOPLE.  Because we have thirty dozen tarts on order tomorrow by 5 pm, we tested out the press late this afternoon (we are SO GOOD at procrastination).  We held a collective breath that it actually worked as planned...and BEHOLD THIS BEAUTIFUL SIGHT:

I declare it here...PJP is forever changed.  One small step for our sanity, one giant leap for #worldpiedomination.  I'm just going to cross of "learn to be zen with washing jar lids" off my 2017 resolution list.  Merry Christmas to me, indeed.

And before I forget in my new tart press glee, congratulations to the winner of the $30 gift certificate to Paint the Town...Andrea Carrigan.   Andrea, you were the randomly selected entry from blog comments and we couldn't be more excited for you to enjoy it.  Just send me an email at with your address and I'll drop it in the mail.  I'll even have the extra time to do it tomorrow because I won't be making 320 tarts by hand in Mason jar lids and then washing all those lids.  Holla.
