When you’re out in the world kicking ass sometimes you get too busy for fussing with pie dough. But you’ve still gotta eat. We’ve all gotta eat. Pie. Thanks to two satellite sillypants correspondents here are two sensible tricks with frozen pie crust:
1/2 cup crème fraiche
1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese
1 white onion
Garlic to taste
Pie crust (“um, I buy them already made”)
Baby spinach leaves
Nutmeg, salt, pepper
Preheat oven to 350
Pre-bake pie crust for about 7 minutes
On stove medium heat a little olive oil and throw in the chopped
onion/garlic till slightly browned
Add spinach leaves
Put spinach/onion/garlic in pie crust
In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, crème fraiche, cottage cheese, nutmeg,
salt and pepper and mix up
Pour on top of spinach in pie crust
Put in the oven at 350 for 50 minutes!
Charlotte’s 15-Minutes-of-Prep Chocolate Chip Pie
2 eggs (don’t use eggbeaters. tried it. nasty.)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened (use the real stuff, it makes all the difference)
1 cup chocolate chips ( or anything that comes in the chip form.. I’ve tried the Reese’s ones.. pretty f’in good)
1 cup chopped walnuts (can use pecans or a mix of the two)
1 9″ deep dish pie shell
i usually set the pie shell on top of the oven while its preheating to thaw it while i’m mixing everything else.
beat 2 eggs until foamy. add flour & both sugars. beat in butter. stir in chips & nuts. put in shell.
yeah. that’s it.
takes about 45-50 mins to cook in my crazy oven.
