I return to you now, with another kitchen accomplishment!
*waits for the champagne cork to pop*
C'mon... no champagne? Well, streamers?
*waits some more*
Some hole punch leftovers?
*gives up and continues*
So, I have now cooked a pie. And not merely the pie, but I actually made the crust myself! With a tasty (but ginormous) recipe from Teth and some life-saving hints from TG (like, when you're flattening the crust, flip it regularly so it doesn't fuse with the work area ). It was listed in the recipe book as a "fudge brownie pie," and claimed to be from my grandmother... although when I asked her about it, she'd never heard of it.
Anyway. Seven-eighths of it are currently cooling on the range, and the remaing one-eighth was enjoyed with some very tasty, very cold vanilla ice cream.
