One is for my next door neighbour and the second one is for a neighour two houses up the street - they kindly helped cleared my sidewalk of snow a few times this past winter. Yeah, I know, the pies are bit late in coming, but I am the queen of procrastination. I started on Tuesday - frozen pie shells were in the freezer. I had the apples, the cranberries and all the streusel ready. I prebaked the pie shells and as I was taking them out from the oven, I dropped one.
Wednesday - got another pie shells from the grocery store. In all the rush and excitement, didn't I forget to pierce them with fork? Both puffed up very nicely and performed some miniature landslide. Off to the garbage they went.
Thursday - attempt # 3. Both pies turned out good (as far as I can tell) - and neither neighbour is at home. Arrrrgh!!!!!
No I am sitting here with two fresh pies smelling deliciously on the counter. I have to stay strong!
