1 Egg + flour + (various) = Pie!

Mondays are baked goods days at work.  Not because of some company policies but because I brought in baked goods four Mondays in a row and that broke the repetition barrier required for something to become a tradition.  It was 1 AM on Monday and thought I’d go for the reliable pineapple upside-down cake but I only had 1 egg.  So I decided to make a Various Pie containing:

  • 1/2 of an expired instant pie crust
  • 2 apples past their prime
  • 1 packet caramel brownie covering
  • A lump of brown sugar of near-diamond hardness
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1 can Lucky Leaf apple filling

Using the maxims of “if all else fails add butter” and “if all else fails add sugar” (does not apply to grilling) I think I made a passable pie.  Someone said it was a bit smoother than normal; that was probably the caramel filling and “over ripe” apples.  I need to find a way to keep an emergency stock of eggs a la “In Case of Emergency Break Glass” kinda way.  I Googled “freezing eggs” and learned quite a bit about the cryonics of preserving human ova, sadly they’re far too small to cook with.
