I might have gotten a bit ahead of myself.
For Thanksgiving this year I was in charge of Cranberries and making pies for my wheat allergic self.
Cranberries, no problem. I make them frequently, often stocking up on cranberries and freezing them after Thanksgiving so I can have them when they aren’t in season.
Pies, I’ve made a couple Keto pumpkin pies, but this time I wanted to make them just like Dad does, minus the crust. He always doubles the spices, and I love them that way – store bought pies are so bland in comparison.
So I borrowed pie tins from Dad, bought supplies, and went at it.
The pie cans each stated they made two pies, and I had two cans, so I expected four pies. Mixed everything up, sprayed pie tins, dusted with gluten free flour so they wouldn’t stick, and starting portioning it out.
It became immediately apparent that I had a problem.
In the end, I filled four tins and all my ramekins and set one pie aside to freeze. All the pies and ramekins JUST BARELY fit in our counter convection oven.
The finished pies on my stove:
It got a little out of hand.
They were delicious though, and only three pies made it to Thanksgiving dinner!
