|One Sweet Potato Pie going in the oven and one already out!|
Boy did I mess up today! I was making a sweet potato pie and mixed up my crust. Unfortunately, I misread the directions and used 1 cup of shortening instead of 1/3 cup! I eventually figured out where my mistake was made. There was no other option than to add more ingredients to make more crusts or throw it out. I'm not a "throw it out" kind of gal as that wouldn't be frugal. So, I've spent the entire day in the kitchen. Not exactly what I planned for today, but fortunately, I had the time to go ahead and bake.
I thought I'd make three pies since I tripled the crust recipe, but only made two and just made my bottom crusts thicker than normal. While the kitchen was already messy I went ahead and made 3 dozen banana bread muffins. I'm thinking that I'm gonna have some very happy boys in this house tonight! :-)
