A couple months ago, Emily suggested I write a guest post for her blog, and at the time I was all “OMG! This is a dream come true, but alas I’m in a bunch of theater crap right now and barely have time to whip up some mac and cheese let alone a majesty of cakes and cookies and then write a thing about it.”
|Was 9 cents an ounce. A steal, I say.|
Pro tip: Don’t use the tiny one for making a pie crust.
|Not as hot as it's about to get, but you get the idea.|
|It was an unwieldy journey, but it was worth it.|
Pro tip: get a kitten from your local animal shelter to adorably play with grocery bags when you’re done with them.
Now on to the part of this recipe that makes a boring old crust into a pie.
|Not make up.|
|Pro tip: Get an older, more vocal cat from your local animal shelter and have it sit on top of your fridge to meow critiques at you as you combine these ingredients.|
|Ah the magic of folding.|
|Pro tip: don't do this.|
Despite my mistake, patience and determination allowed me to trim and fold the edges over in such a way as to where it actually did start looking like a pie. I have no idea how to describe how to pinch the edges of a pie crust effectively, but I can tell you there's about seventy different ways to do it. I opted for the fold-over method I perfected as a child whilst playing with play-doh.
|That. Just do...that.|
|Harder to grip, but only because it's straight out of the oven.|
|Pro tip: Maybe don't get a kitten unless you want all your food to be eaten behind your back.|
