THE PIE CHALLENGE
Martha's "Pie Challenge" was almost a complete disaster. I really didn't have any ingredients on hand for a pie, but this is a busy week, so wanted to do something. I remembered I had some coconut in the freezer and decided to make a coconut pie. Made the pie crust, and baked it. While it cooled I mixed up the ingredients for the filling. In the middle of the process the phone rang and it was the pharmacy asking me some questions about my medication. Answered the questions, went back to my pie filling, poured it in the crust and stuck it in the oven. The challenge was to make a pie and post a picture of it.
After a couple minutes I opened the microwave to heat up my coffee and there was my 1/2 cup melted butter for the pie! Oops. The pie is in the oven!! I quickly took it out of the oven and poured in the melted butter, tried to mix it in without splashing it all over. Yikes, and this is a pie for a challenge. Yep, that was my challenge.
But to my surprise, when it finally baked (took the middle forever) it looked like a pie, and it tasted like a pie, so that my story and I'm sticking to it!!
You have to make mini cinnamon rolls with leftover pie crust dough....Right???
