SD Alice

A Peanuts Halloween

We probably would have arrived earlier at the annual Halloween party hosted by The Martial Artist and his wife, The Book Lover, if not for the Great Tart Experiment. We had some apples sitting around the house, bought at the farmers' market, and I suggested a simple apple pie. My mom used to make them in about an hour flat, using pre-made pie crusts.

The Gryphon, always the food adventurer, looked up a recipe for apple tarts. It looked fairly simple, as well, although it involved a couple more steps. And as we were in the grocery store, he uttered the words I should have known were a red flag: "I might as well make the dough myself."
