Peach pie disaster

micki | Aug 24, 2002 09:09 PM

I did all the right things--the pie was a small miracle--the crust looked and felt like it would be flaky and tender--the filling was redolent with farmer's market fresh Jersey peaches, cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh lemon juice, a pinch of salt, butter. It had all the makings of a dessert to remember.

I rolled out the crust. I filled the pie. I put on the top crust. I glazed it with egg yolk and a little milk. I made four slits. I put it in the oven.

It was gorgeous! I took it out of the oven on the cookie sheet it had been baking on. I let it cool for a while, I took it off the cookie sheet and put it on a cooking rack.

A few minutes later I hear a "Crack". The bottom of the Pyrex glass pie plate had shattered!!!! The pie was a loss.
