Step 6: Add Crust

Again, I normally make pie crust like this. If you skip to the last step, it has some instructions for weaving a lattice top.

However, I didn't have the ingredients I really wanted to make pie crust, so I made something up. It turned out to be really good:

Espresso "Pie Crust"
Put ~1C flour in a bowl.
Open up about six single-serving packets of Promise or some other too-soft-not-actually-butter and cut them into the flour.
Add some sugar and salt- maybe 1/8C sugar, a pinch of salt?
Add about two tablespoons of espresso.
Mix with water until something resembling the right texture (but softer than normal) is achieved.

Top apple with crust. Cut ends to be even, and press them into a defined shape at the bottom.
Like a hat. Sorry, couldn't resist the mustache picture. (If you're interested, Danger is my Middle Name is selling those mustache stickers...)
