I Didn't Have a Pie Dish

I've done so very little baking over the years ---

partly because I've never taken the time to learn how to make pastry/crust (my fault),

partly because I know that any crust I made would be utterly inferior to that which my oldest sister makes (it melts in your mouth) -  I always "demand" her apple pie when I go home to England!  She obliges with a smile,

partly because my aging kitchen in SRQ is notably short of counter space on which to roll out pastry -  excuses, excuses! my Mum made excellent pastry crust when kitchen counter space had not even been invented!

I've occasionally bought those supermarket frozen crusts and found them to be -  well "crummy".


So this morning, with rhubarb and apples at hand I decided to make a R and A Crisp.

Lordy, lordy, I didn't even own an an oven proof pie dish.

So I bought one..

It cost me the princely sum of $2.79 (yes, $2.79!) at my local Publix Supermarket  (I came across a one day sale).


I made the crisp.

Rhubarb and Apple with an oats, brown sugar, melted butter and flour topping.

Looks good eh?  It was slightly  over cooked so the pie edges were a bit hard, but were also chewy and caramely.


If the proof of the pudding is in the eating I need say no more!


My rhubarb and apple Crisp, with vanilla ice cream.  Who could ask for anything more?
