If you thought I only aspired to be The Soup Queen you would be wrong. I also want to be Pie Woman. I could never make the heavenly pies my mother in law makes, but I'd like to make very good pies.
Today I made pumpkin pie (Libby's recipe). I can make pumpkin pie no problem.
I'm branching out and my very first Apple Pie is baking as we speak. I think the preparation went well. I don't mind peeling apples and slicing them thin, but that gnarly apple core, grrr. I'm pretty sure there are apple coring tools...eek do I have one of those things that cores and slices in a drawer someplace? That would have saved time and minimized the core size.
I'm a lifelong Betty Crocker fan so I used the recipe in the 2011 edition. I forgot to put the foil ring around the edge to prevent excess browning. :(. I did put a pan underneath to catch wily juices that will likely escape.
I used the Pillsbury crusts but I haven 't made a pie before with a top crust sooo the whole crimping the edges thing was a bit off.
After I wrote this I was worried and went to look at the pie which I pictured to be a dark dank mess. But noooo I opened the door and said "Wow, that's beautiful!"
Pie mania running wild, we had pizza pie for supper.
