I received my Country Living magazine recently and my dad told me he was going to use a recipe out of the magazine to make cranberry pie for Thanksgiving so I decided to do the same. However, mine did not turn out and I think the reason is that I substituted half and half for heavy cream.
As you can see, this was a beautiful pie in the magazine but mine, not so pretty. Here is the recipe from Country Living. Read on.
Guess what, this happens when you are cooking. I have come to realize recently that baking is a science and needs to be precise but cooking does not. You do not really have to measure during cooking and things still turn out delicious. So keep this in mind.
BAKING, be precise
COOKING, add what you want
This pie calls for a pie crust filled with cranberries.
The below picture is my messed up pie. You can see that the cream mixture really separated from the cranberries. When the pie was eaten you could
definitely see the separation. Well that is ok, at least I tired a new recipe.
Any mess ups you would like to share?
