When I first got the book, I passed over the pies & tarts section... cause I'm just not a pie & tart person. I'm more about cakes, cupcakes & cookies. This time around... since there are more pie & tart recipes for me to try, I figure I would tackle more than I normally would.
Sawdust pie - I KNEW the end product would somehow resemble sawdust! My tweaks:
- I didnt realize the recipe called for UNSWEETENED cocout until I was ready to rip open the package. I only had sweetened coconut. Therefore, I omitted all the sugar that was in the recipe.
- Instead of making a full pie, I made individual pies. To do this, I majorly cheated. I didnt make any of the pie crust that was called for. I used Keebler's Mini Graham Cracker Crust Pie Crusts.
