Brenda’s Comments:

 There are a few things in my kitchen I can't live without, my  Kitchenaid   mixer, my Cuisinart, my juicer, my French rolling pin and

now a new discovery Fox Run Pie Crust Bag !!! Want to save time   rolling out  pastry dough for a pie? Buy one of these. You unzip the

pie crust bag, dust with flour and place dough inside. Zip up the bag.  Use a rolling pin to form a perfect circle pie crust. It keeps your rolling  pin and counter clean. To clean it, you hand wash. What a great

 invention!

COMMENTS:

I have never combined creme fraiche with whipping cream before and I was surprised by the rich flavour of the whipping cream. You can certainly leave it out if you choose.
