I tried to make pie crust....

... but I made a mess!

I used the recipe from this month's Oprah magazine. I subbed margarine for butter, but otherwise followed the directions. Chilled it and all.

I rolled it out, and went to look for my favorite pyrex pie dish. Missing. So I settled for another one., slightly smaller. Too much dough for that dish, so rolled out the leftovers and figured I would press it into a smallish tart pan.

Yeahhhh.. well that didn't work. The pie dough in the tart pan burned, the smoke alarm went off, DH isn't home to reach the smoke alarm, I tripped off the stool trying to turn off the smoke alarm....

So now I have one pumpkin pie in the oven (thank god) and leftover pumpkin filling. What to do with the filling? Keep it? Or would it bake up nice crustless?

Please someone tell me this has happened to them!
