Correction: I've been too intimidated to try making homemade pie crust and didn't feel like just making the filling. It just wouldn't be the same.
Anyway, now that I'm 20 years old and a full-fledged young adult, I figured that it's high time that I master pie. I've mastered bread, cookies, muffins, and pretty much any other baked treats. Pie? No problem!
And it really wasn't with this recipe. I love that the crust didn't need to be chilled, as so many of them do, because I get in baking frenzies and want to bake right then, not prep a bunch of stuff and bake later.
