This is by far my favorite video for Thanksgiving disasters. I am not a big baker so if a problem was to arise, it would probably be with my pies. I LOVE the tip about removing the entire top crust and replacing it with a new one! Duh! Such a brilliant idea! Also I have had the edges of my pumpkin pie burn before but it never even occurred to me to remove it and spray some whipped cream over it. Talk about some ah ha moments! This video is great! Thanks!
