High Hopes: Accidental Apple Cobbler

So, I wanted to bake an apple pie. Wasn't my first time.

hard at work, like I know what I'm doing...
Everything was going well...

ready for the top layer of crust
The pie went in the oven, sat there cooking peacefully. Forty five minutes later the timer went off, I checked the pie, it looked great. (You have to take my word for it: I have no pic to prove it.) So what did I do? I put on my big red oven mitts, picked up the aluminum plate with the pie, and voilà!

accidental apple cobbler
No, it didn't fall on the floor. I barely lost any of it, just a few pieces of crust. But it sure didn't look like a high apple pie...

this one is from another, more successful, day
Lesson learned: next time I'll put an aluminum plate on a baking tray, take the tray out of the oven when the pie's done and let the pie cool till I can pick the plate with my bare hands. I won't grab a hot flexible aluminum plate with a nice pie in it wearing my bulky oven mitts!

Unless, of course, I decide I want another accidental apple cobbler which, by the way, was delicious!

you don't have to look good to taste great!

Live for the Love of it,

Sasha A. Palmer (aka Happy)
