Dear pre-made pie crust.
I hate you. You melted and fell apart in my oven causing a tiny fire. I'm pretty sure I got some of the salt on the corner of my apple pie when I was putting said fire out (I'm sorry to whoever gets that corner). You still puffed up even when I used pie weights when I made my pumpkin pies, and my pretty crimped edges on all of my pies fell down. I hate you pre-made pie crust, we are not friends.
Julia Child, I will never stray from your crust recipe again. In all the years I have used it it has never failed me, never melted, never caused a fire. I apologize for every going the "easy" route.
Oh and have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
Three of the ugliest pies I've ever made (the apple pie is the one that melted and caught the oven on fire):
