when life hands you pie crust…

Crumble and Crisp

When we defrosted the freezer last week, I found a bag of pie crusts.

Tonight, I decided to make pie.

Well, technically it was a crumble, or maybe a crisp. Or maybe both, because I had too much filling and topping for just my normal-sized pie plate, and had to add some of each to my smaller-sized pie plate.

It all smelled amazing.

And the filling and the topping were perfect.

But the crust dough was freezer-burned. I’d thought the dough smelled off. But I talked myself out of it, because I really wanted pie.

Rudi and I have decided that we’ll just eat the filling. When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. When it hands you dough, you make pie. And let’s face it, this is a way more interesting way to eat those apples than out of hand.

I AGREE! EAT THE FILLING! WE BOUGHT A 22 DOLLAR PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE WHIP CREAM PIE YESTERDAY……AND IT IS OH SO HEAVENLY!

We found some pie crusts in our freezer recently, too. They were clearly very old (use-by dates from years past), and icy, and we were not optimistic. We decided to throw them away. And that seemed the right decision, but now we don’t have pie, so perhaps not 🙂
