one time very late at night i tried to make an apple pie from scratch. the filling was a lot of fun to make because of all the apple peeling and slicing and mixing them with lots of cinnamon and sugar. but the crust did not go so well. i have never been good at dough and pie crust was no exception especially cause it’s so thin. i got the bottom crust in basically fine and then put the filling in, but the top crust was such a nightmare because you’re trying to lift this big thin sheet of dough up and lay it down perfectly over an irregular apple chunked surface and i am not good at arts and crafts, ok, i can barely use scissors, so this is a difficult task for my level of manual dexterity. so anyway i just made it fit as well as i could and then did the fork thing around the edges.
really though the thing i thought i’d fucked up was actually not what i fucked up the worst, although it was still pretty fucked up too. but no, i didn’t do something right with the filling and it came out more liquidy than gooey (i think not enough corn starch or
something). i think almost all of it got eaten, though. if you put ice cream on almost anything it can be tolerable to eat, especially if that anything is a mound of sugar and cinnamon and apples and butter.
my favorite kind of pie is actually cheesecake, which according to wikipedia and common sense is actually a pie and not a cake. but cheesecake is a much more difficult word to make the focus of a song.
this is a song i wrote called “pie”. it is about pie and the desiring of it and the eating of it.
