Apple pie, with a side of cussing...


 That was my night last night, making pies... I started at about 6pm, and the second pie came out of the oven at (Oh God) almost 2am... Why so long?

Apparently, low humidity doesn't make for an easy pie-making first time. I followed the recipe, I really did! And after leaving the dough in the fridge so it could hydrate, I came out with... crumbles. So after hydrating the doughs 3 and 4 times respectively, I finally ended up with actual pies, but they aren't so pretty... :-S

But they're done, darnit! And I'll know for next time (will there be a next time?!)

Kudos to my poor husband, who had to put up with a very annoyed Chantel all of last evening...
