Thanksgiving Pies

Lots of baking going on today, in addition to trying out a San Francisco Sourdough recipe from Dave Snyder, pie baking for Thanksgiving was in order.  I found a great Sweet Potato Pie recipe on this site which was submitted by SylviaH.  It's definitely a keeper. 



I also made a pecan pie that's in the oven now--


The San Francisco Sourdough is in its bulk fermentation - I've done one stretch and fold so far and it's looking good.  I hope to bake it tomorrow before the Turkey goes in the oven.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and thank you to Floydm for this wonderful website.

pie and your two pies are the reason why!  Nice baking.  Hope the SFSD is just as good too!

Yes, the SFSD came out really well. Good oven spring, holey, and sour(but not too sour, could even be more?).  I could stand to work on my boule shaping and scoring techniques, but I'm pleased with the results and will make this one again, soon!

Here is a picture of the bread's crumb - nice and holey!
