It is especially gratifying to learn of families incorporating Tie One On Day as part of their Thanksgiving. By participating in TOODay, this mom and her young daughter made many people’s day brighter:

“My 9 year-old daughter heard about this unique day and wanted to participate so we baked muffins together, wearing matching aprons, to give to neighbors and friends. She wrote notes thanking them for their friendship and we delivered them together, explaining Tie One On Day to each recipient. We even gave treats for the dogs! Some we wrapped in scarves instead of aprons to mix it up a bit. Each person was touched and thrilled. Think we have a new tradition!”  Mindy C.

Inspired by this mother and daughter, I invited two sisters to participate in Tie One On Day. In the 3 hours between drop off and pick up, we made up mini peach pies and cookies from scrap dough, worked a puzzle while the pies were in the oven, created note cards for the pie recipients,  ate the cookies and packaged the pies for delivery.

There is no perfect pie crust, except for dough rolled with lots of laughing and flour everywhere!
