Happy Thanksgiving from this Canadian (who celebrated Thanksgiving last month) ;)

I just broke down and used ready made pie crust for my apple pie because I couldn't face the thought of trying to make my own dough. This sounds so simple - next time I'm going to try Anna's recipe, instead.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I would love to try this but I have no idea what size of Philadelphia you mean - here they come in about 5 different sizes - help please!

Happy Thanksgiving!

A standard-size package of Philadelphia cream cheese is 8 oz. I would guess the recipe uses that size, so half of that is 4 oz. Sarah?

Yes! I checked with Anna, and thats exactly right! Thanks!

The same question with a 'stick' of butter- for those us on the other side of the world, please?

oh, yum! so your appetite's back, you say?

In the U.S., butter comes in a 1 lb. package with four sticks to a pound. So a stick of butter is 1/4 pound of butter.

Often each stick is individually wrapped in some kind of wax paper, so a stick of butter is self-contained and needs no further measuring, cutting, breaking, etc.

Thank goodness I had read this post when I attempted to buy a premade crust on Thanksgiving day (silly me). I remembered this simple recipe, it was easy, and it turned out great! Thanks so much for sharing!

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
