Homemade Goodies!

In March, I invited several students over to my house to bake cookies as part of an extracurricular “lesson.”  It went so well that we decided to do it again.  The Korean women (my student and her friend) were here on May 24 for their third cooking lesson.  The first two times we made cookies, including making and decorating gingerbread men and women. Since I believed they were already quite proficient at making cookies, I decided to teach them to make pie crust and pie filling.

They each made two crusts: one for a tomato quiche and the other for an apple pie. They made and baked their tomato quiches during the lesson. They made their apple pie here but took it home to cook it since the lesson had already lasted three hours! Sunny promised to try making an apple pie at home and bring me a piece. She already has brought me an oatmeal cookie she made, adapting one of the recipes she had made during her first lesson. As with the earlier lessons, only English was spoken throughout the lesson. Next time, in July, they want to make lasagna!
