I made the crust from scratch for the first time ever in my life. It didn't turn out half bad. I did realize though, I mixed in 1 1/2 cups of sugar instead of only 1 1/2 tablespoons. Oops. The crust was a little sweet but still very delicious.
Then I mixed the filling. Apparently, Tuesday was not my day as far as reading the recipe goes. I added in 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice instead of 2 teaspoons. That oopsy I claim as not my fault. The tablespoon measurer was labeled with "T." I'm used to seeing "Tsp." Easy confusion; I am not a dumb as you may think.
Besides the two slight changes, it turned out pretty well. I got rave reviews from my wonderful roomies ,which is always a plus.
Tomorrow I am baking two pies. One will be a pear-apple to share with my wonderful roomies after we eat a "fancy" dinner-aka not eat at the dining hall or order pizza. The other pie, which I am SUPER stoked for, is going to be a snickers brownie pie. I'm making that with a friend and there is no way I am sharing it with anyone else.
