My kids helped me make Sweet Potato Pie the other day, and it was a trick and treat!
What happened? When I pulled the frozen pie crust out of the freezer, it came right out of the pie tin and I somehow didn’t notice. So I set the pie crust (without the tin) on a baking sheet and filled it with the filling. We popped it in the hot oven, and thankfully my son was excited and checked on the pie just a few minutes after it went in the oven.
He told me the pie was bleeding.
Curious, I checked on it too. Sure enough, the crust was flat with the filling all over the baking sheet. I was SO confused and thought maybe somehow the tin melted in there, but I just couldn’t see it.
When I realized what really happened, I was happy there was not tin mixed in with the pie. We salvaged the yumminess by putting the crust and filling in a glass baking dish and cooking it up. Not as pretty, but still a treat. 🙂
