I love pie.
Love. Love. LOVE pie.
But, I don’t like making pie.
Too much work to do it right. It’s all about the crust and you can’t just roll it out of a box and expect that to be the real deal. So, it is rare that I invest the time and effort into pie creation, I just don’t have it in my life to spare and I can’t face a failure of this nature. But, as a substitute, I have been known to throw together a delicious crisp.
They meet the need for sweet, warm goodness without requiring me to slave away in the kitchen creating a product that may or may not meet my high standards of pie crust excellence.
And, soooooo, goooooood
