Wordless Wednesday: Conquerer of Crust
My friends, I am so excited. For this week, I conquered pastry crust!
Up until now my crusts have always been kind of bland and chewy. But just last week I made a quiche (carmelized onion quiche from Vegan Brunch) for breakfast with friends and I used vegan Earth Balance shortening instead of margarine for the pastry. Low and behold, a crust of excellence. And then, even more amazingly, I baked my first truly successful apple pie on Monday. Flakey crust! Tender fruit! Perfect balance of sweetness! I am very proud of myself.
(Slightly crappy iphone photo of apple pie because we got excited and ate it before I took a real photo.)
