Well, by the time my parents got home the crust was a bit less crusty and the crumble was a bit less crumbly (condensation got it plus, again, lighting stinks), so there wasn’t much of a great photo opp.
Progress pics. I’ll take a picture of the end result tonight. The crust turned out pretty enough and I threw a little scrap into the oven for a quick taste test and it definitely seemed alright. I don’t think the missing butter is going to be the end of the world for this little pie.
Now hopefully tonight after work (and before picking up parents+brother from the airport) I can get started on a big batch of homemade vanilla ice cream to go with it. If that turns out well I’m going to make a bunch to pair with the next two or three pies I plan to make.
I can never just bake a little because I love too many people! 😬😁
