Jani says: “My grandma is known for her pies. Every Christmas and Thanksgiving, she is THE pie maker. Everyone has their separate favorite requests, which she manages to bring all that she can. Dan of course gets his whole pumpkin pie. She loves making this for him. I always know that whatever is inside, her pie crust is absolutely delicious”.
