To bake or not to bake, that is the question.
Well, we’re preparing to go to a community Christmas dinner where we volunteered to bring a dessert offering.
It has been a while since we have done any baking around here, so we went out and bought a new glass pie pan.
After all of the ingredients were assembled, the motor for our hand mixer went missing. We borrowed one from a neighbor. Then the baking progressed in a preheated 350 degree oven. When the baking was finished, 20 minutes later, the pie was removed and placed on an oven mitt to cool.
The pie sat undisturbed for about 10 minutes when we heard the explosion. The new pie pan shattered and blew glass around the entire kitchen.
Luckily, nobody was within the blast area. But to add insult to injury, while cleaning the neighbor’s mixer, the unit was scratched. So we will replace it.
We wondered why we haven’t been baking, now we know.
