Saturday was Sweetys birthday. 45 big ones....lol. Anyway, he is more of a pie guy than a cake guy. His favorite is pumpkin but I was feeling like an old fashioned homemade pie might do the trick. For all of you who know me well, I DON'T MAKE HOMEMADE PIE...I just don't. I can make pizza dough, bread dough, tortilla, naan bread...any kind of bread but please don't make me make a pastry crust. Me and the crust have a bad history, but after all it was his birthday, so I had to give it a shot. So I rolled up my sleeves and made a pie from scratch..crust and all.
Here is how it came out: before baking
Then after about an hour in the oven
Ok...this looks good even to me.
Then the real test:
He looks happy
Oh my word....I don't like to pump myself up but this one was a total winner.
So sometimes you just have to enjoy that slice of pie.
Today's tip: try making something totally from scratch. Even if you think you can't, you may be surprised at the results.
