Okay, so this is a decorative tip that I’m not sure I’m proud or ashamed to share!
Well, here goes.
I buy the really cheap, nasty tasting grocery store pies– the $4 ones.
The thing is, we don’t eat them.
I just decorate with them.
Picture buying flowers— you don’t eat them.
They die and you throw them away and they were lovely while they lasted.
Well, that’s how I view grocery store pies.
I buy them because they look really well made.
They always have a perfect lattice crust– I can never make a perfect lattice crust.
I stick them under a glass cloche and they last for A LONG TIME.
Like a weirdly long time.
It’s probably why they don’t taste so good. ewww
So there– my pie confession.
And for those of you that regularly visit my home–
disregard all you have read above–
and PLEASE, never ask for a piece of pie.
