My little helper assisted with pouring all the ingredients. However, she had to leave to room before I turned on the food processor since she is still afraid of the noise.
Josh came into the kitchen and found me on the verge of tears. I threw down the rolling pin and thought of how I could still make it to the store, buy a frozen pie crust already perfectly molded to the tin and fill it with homemade filling. Resisting the urge, I turned to the internet instead. Other people must have had this problem.
Helpful hint: Place your pie crust between two pieces of waxed paper and then roll it out. You can then take the waxed paper, turn it upside down and place it your pie plate. If I had known this before, I would have saved myself an hour.
The pies were a hit! I made an apple crumble and a pecan pie. Although I still have to work on making the crust a little prettier, I'm happy I stuck it out.
