As usual, we're heading over to my brother's home for turkey. I'm bringing a cherry pie and a pumpkin pie, along with a couple of bottles of wine and sparkling grape juice.

It took most of the afternoon to bake the pies, mostly because I forgot to shield the edge of the crust w/ aluminum foil. The edge was quite burnt, so I decided to make another cherry pie. Off to the grocery store to buy the cherries, etc., while the pumpkin pie was baking.

I remembered as I walked into the store that it was about time to turn back the oven on the pumpkin pie! I called MDH and told him to set the temperature back to 350 F when the timer beeped, then set the timer for 40 minutes. MDH saved the pumpkin pie! When I got back I made another cherry pie and finished around 5 pm or so. This time I shielded the edges w/ strips of foil and all is well!

MDH tells me that the "burnt edge" pie is delicious<G>.
