Great! Now I have to appologize!
I was talking to one of the gals from my knitting group about my caramel apple tart. I was talking about it and I mentioned it was a Martha recipe. This very nice lady said, “and what did you have to change to make it work?”
It came to light that she swears up and down that all of Martha’s recipes either have a fault or make an assumption that isn’t specified in the recipe that causes it to fail if you follow it EXACTLY.
I am sorry to say I called bullshit on that one. At least in my head, I did. I couldn’t really refute the statement since I didn’t actually follow the recipe. But I wanted to prove her wrong. So I bought the right kind of apples and made the crust and followed the recipe EXACTLY. With a timer.
I shouldn’t have bothered with the timer.
The apples turned to mush before I even got them off the stove.
Yup, the McIntosh apples she suggested are COMPLETELY unsuitable.
I wonder if I can still salvage this mess?
Darn you Martha!
