happy december, mighty mice!
Yay! it's finally Christmas time. And now, I want to tell you something about pies. Everyone says don't bother making your own crust; just buy store-bought frozen crust. Everyone says it's not worth it. But I want to tell you, they are wrong. There is a third option, and it is magic.
Betty Crocker makes instant pie crust powder--just add water. You have to roll it out. The crust it makes is the kind of crust that's so good, it's actually the star of the pie. it reminds you why pie was ever popular. it makes frozen crust seem, in hind-taste, a form of paper towel.
Pour in some pie filling and everyone will think you're martha stewart.
I also highly recommend Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass's Christmas Album.
