Cheatin' is just fine!

I have often told my children that that lyin' and cheatin' are two ways to get yourself into a real mess of trouble. This is really not a matter of telling a big lie~ just a little fibbin'. Really, not even that... if anyone asks I will tell the truth.

I use premade piecrusts.
I have learned to do it the real way, by watching my Mon and Grandmother, and could if I needed to. If you have ever used them though, these new refrigerated pie crusts that are pre-made are so easy. They are ready to put into your own pie plate and bake. They taste almost as good as the ones I have spent time rolling out. In my humble opinion, I don't think the frozen crusts in the tin plates are a substitution under any circumstances.
There... the truth is out. I may be banned from all food blogs, and my cooking advice may be poo-poo'd away. Saving time is just to important these days, for me and I think for a lot of other busy mom's.
As we come to Thanksgiving ~this is one thing we have to be thankful for...Pre-made pie crust!
Y'all forgive me!

another trick is to use the frozen sheets of puff pastry that are in that section. this works well when you're needing a sturdier bottom layer. i'll be putting a link to ya'll when i get back home next week.

Well I don't think using pre-made pie crusts is that bad. As long as they are good quality it's pretty fine isn't it? ;o)

Saving time is more important then ever, so why not get some "kitchen help" when it's available...

I take sides with you and admit: I use pre-made crusts too :o))
