I have tried to work on my baking. Unfortunately there are many mishaps and screw-ups. I just had a Duncan Hines brownie I made last night. It was absolutely delicious. Granted, I can make a really good brownie from scratch but Duncan Hines is so easy!
That brings me back to pie crust. It’s always about the pie crust. I swear, I have a complex about it. It seems very womanly in a small town church event kind of way to be able to bake a great pie. From scratch. Including the crust. My pie crust has always been bad and I’ve been prone to giving up. I tried one last weekend and failed. Part of me wants to give up. And the Pillsbury boxed crust that you unroll is pretty darn good. I really need inner strength to keep trying. I could easily say, well I will make pound cakes, and cakes, and cookies from scratch. With those you can taste the difference, and home-made is way better. But with pie crust, in my case, store-bought is definitely better.
What to do? I will keep trying. Maybe I will keep some store-bought on hand, just in case. While I’m learning. 🙂
