Pie!

I've said this before: everything is better when baked into a pie.

Today I trotted out the apple pie filling so I could make a pie for a family gathering. I made my own crust. It's so much better when I do. I even thought ahead and cleared enough space on the counter to roll it out. Which I did in saran wrap so the crust wouldn't stick to anything. Worked GREAT! I am returning my mother's pie plate to her today, so what better way than with a pie in it?

The pie used 2 pints of the pie filling. I suppose I could have shoved a third pint in there, but then it might have overflowed. So, while the top crust isn't as high as it would be if there had been 9 cups of fresh apples, it's pretty. I dolled it up with the hearts, as you can see. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!
