Why The Prude Doesn't Do a Recipe Blog

Recipe blogs are all well and good for those among us who can cook.
Or can at  least make pretty food.
The Prude doesn't do pretty food.
Any recipe blog she published would be categorized 'bloopers'.

Below is the proof.

The Prude's mother made something called 'apple slices'
Like apple pie, but bigger, more in the parallelogram family, and capable
of feeding more people.

The Prude, having many people to feed recently, decided to give it a try.
The immediate problem stemmed from The Prude's resistance to making homemade pie crusts.
Why bother when the rotund little doughy guy in the tall white hat makes those clever little rolls of  crust?

The Prude decided to stick with what she knows.
Inserting round shapes into rectangular containers takes some ingenuity.
But she persisted.
Something was clearly wrong.
The Prude decided to mush up the seams a bit
and hope that the baking process would add beauty.
It didn't.

But Prudes never give into despair. Your Prude applied the panacea
used by cooks of ugly baked goods through the ages.

You know, pie crust has a tendency to be temperamental as you've shown, but this is the first time I've ever seen the "help" of using icing to cover up its temperamentalness! BONUS! Just in time for Thanksgiving *wink*

And you just gave me a new word to use someday:'temperamentalness'

(My mom only made this for Thanksgiving. Another reason to love November)
