3) Welp, we screwed the pooch with the apple pie. We might have made the dough too wet which could have impacted how it cooked--not evenly.

You had to cover the apples in a bowl with lemon juice, bitters, flour and sugar. The recipe didn't say if we should put this liquid in with the pie but we did--and we should not have. The result--gloop. Not terrible tasting, not a disaster. An edible failure. But not something you could serve for company, unless they were a forgiving crowd.

But I think we know where we went wrong. And for what it's worth I did make my first caramel from scratch and that part turned out ok.

Live and learn, right?

You can call the concoction, Apple Brown Betty, and nobody would know.
