Here comes the tricky-ish part: make the crust. This actually wouldn’t be tricky if I had a rolling pin, which I don’t. We were going to purchase one with some of our wedding money, but the one I wanted was evidently too expensive, so we just left the store. That was a couple months ago. I still don’t have a rolling pin. Anyway–if you have a rolling pin…you throw some flour on the counter and unfold the pie crusts there–right beside each other–let them overlap about 3 inches in the center. Press the seam to seal. Roll into a rectangle–cover dish with it, pressing the crust to the rim to seal.
If you don’t have a rolling pin, you just throw those things down side by side and beat and push them with your tiny ineffectual fists until they somewhat resemble the shape of the dish. This makes the ugliest crust EVER. But as Trent said last night, it doesn’t matter because you’re just going to put in a bowl and mix it all up. Which is true.
Anyway…lastly, you bake that bad boy in the oven for 40 minutes or until the ugly (or not ugly as the case may be) crust is golden brown.
