This weekend I thought it would be a GRAND idea to bake a pie! I was very encouraged after reading Molly’s blog post with advice on baking. But, still a bit hesitant, I took the easy way out and bought a pre-made roll out pie dough and two cans of pie filling.
I thought for sure that I had this one in the bag. No muss, no fuss… I threw a bit of flour on my nose (so I looked like I had been baking) and put the ingredients together. I followed the can and the pie crust package to the last dotted i.
Did I mention that it tasted terrible? Taking a shortcut made me feel as if baking was easy but easy does not exactly equal yummy!!! I better get back to the drawing board because Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Nothing beats a made from scratch pie… I wonder where I went wrong?
By the way, my husband thanked me for even attempting to make a pie and he ate every last bit of it. I think I will definitely try again if only to see his smiling face!
What are your favorite pie recipes? What kinds of pie would you recommend for a beginner baker?
