Okay I am going to admit it here. I cannot make a pie. I have tried. The crust is either inedible or undone. It is either soggy or so tough that you need a chain saw to cut it. So, yes, I use Mrs. Smith. Once upon a time I would carefully remove the pie from the aluminum pie pan and put it into my own fancy pie dish. Then when the compliments came I would just smile. One time my husband found the empty pie box in the trash. He just smiled and the next year asked me what kinds of "Mrs. Smith's" pies did I want from the store for Thanksgiving. All of my family knows that I 'cheat' and buy Mrs. Smith. But that is just the way it is.
Only a few more days and I can heat
up the oven and pop in a few of these.
