Mmmm, that smells good!

You know.
It's that smell that takes you back to the good ol' days when life was simple.

My smell.
Fresh baked pie crust.

My sis and I were rather spoiled as children. For years, we would spend every day before and after school at my grandparents house. Looking back it seems as though my Gramma would have some sort of homemade treat for us every afternoon.

My favorite. Pie crust crackers. The odd-shaped pieces of pie crust would bake in the oven until golden brown. I remember looking at them like they were clouds, trying to imagine what animal or object they would be if they could come to life.

The were flaky, crispy, and just a touch salty!

The extra special treat was when we were able to dip our pie crust crackers in any leftover pie filling! My favorite was chocolate! I know shocking! Seriously, my Gramma made the absolute best chocolate cream pies I have ever had!
