This baking experience was a lesson of “read the entire recipe before you even make your grocery list”, and I wound up visiting the store not twice, but three times before sticking this pie in the oven. It shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to know that fruit pies require both a bottom and top crust, and my no-roll bottom crust was not an option for the top layer.
Live and learn. And everything worked out just fine.
Too much filling, oops. Hey, I just follow directions.
Mmmm, even I loved it! Not too tart at all.
