Homemade versus Mrs. Smith

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.

Good luck to brother Fred on his trip

  1. I cheat too but I use the refrigerated pie crusts from Pillsbury and make my own filling LOL

  2. A lot of times it is cheaper to buy rather than bake. I will go semi homemade and buy pre made pie crust but make my own filling. One of these days I will tackle from scratch pie crust.


I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
