Now - I do have to give all the credit for this particular masterpiece to my husband. He mixed up the dough, and had the pleasure of trying to roll it out just perfectly. This was no easy feat for his first time, and I should have warned him against using too much flour. haha But we figured it out.
Letting the pie cool for the necessary duration of time was probably the hardest part. As soon as we possibly could, we both cut (very messy) slices, and scooped out some plain vanilla ice cream to top it off. I have never seen my husband literally (using this word in complete earnest here) lick the plate clean for any food. But this has happened two nights in a row now. hahaha He says it's the best dessert he's ever had.
I don't think I'll be hearing any protests whenever I want to make another one. Maybe blackberries next time?
