|Hubby's Birthday Pie|
He wasn't impressed by my technique. I thought the patchwork, rustic look for the pie crust would make it more "flaky." He questioned whether the apples would be cooked, because it didn't look properly sealed. I considered those open spaces "vents."
Hubby believes pie crusts should be homemade. I believe you can buy a perfectly tasty and looking crust at the store.
Before I put away the recipe book, I realized I had failed one key step in the pie crust process. Roll it out on wax paper. I rolled it out on a fancy French mat Hubby bought for all of his bread creations. I pieced strips of thin crust together. The wax paper is easier, because you just flip the crust into the pie pan in one large piece.
I hope I remember this lesson next year, because I'm sure he'll want Birthday Pie again.
While I'm grateful he liked the pie, the situation made me realize it's a lot easier to edit words together than a pie crust.
What are you Thankful for this Thursday?
