I had a coupla Apples that were going soft and figured I'd
make DH's favorite dessert, Apple Pie, well, it's really a Galette,
I also found some Crisco, solid shortening in the pantry. I
really can't remember why I had that, I don't use it … must have been
for a recipe I tried awhiles back and we didn't care for,
The crust was not good at all! Very dry, crumbly and tasteless
DH said it was "okay, but... what did you different?"
Well, I followed the recipe on the Crisco can and made the
Apple filling with a touch more cornstarch to thicken up the
juices more, last time DH said it was too "wet".
Second, I said the most foul word to my husband's ears:
DH: What's different about the crust then?
Moi: I used Crisco
DH: So? What do you usually use?
I'll go back to this recipe, for sure!
Much better pie, and I don't even like Apple Pie
