I turned a badly made pie crust into a delicious, custard pie-filled ramekin of goodness. Yesterday, I tried a new pie crust recipe, but should have stuck to my tried and true favorite from “The Wooden Spoon Dessert Book”. I expected this new crust recipe to turn out wonderfully, but instead I ended up with a half-burnt, half-baked travesty. Had time permitted, I would have started over. However, I had to hurry to prepare for a birthday party so I whipped out a set of ramekins and pressed small circles of half-baked dough into the bottom of each cup. I then filled them with a doubled version of the planned recipe, an apple/orange custard from “Rustic Fruit Desserts” and baked them in a water bath. What could have been a disaster turned into the hit of the party- Pie in a Cup! Now i’m dreaming of more and more pie+ramekin possibilities.
