Mom...I Need A Pie

So my Monday began like this.  A phone call from youngest daughter from school.  "Mom...today is pie day at school.  So I need a pie here by 10:30 if possible."  Ummmm......yeah.  She had told me earlier last week she needed one today but I forgot to write it down and she forgot to remind me.  She suggested going to the bakery on the way to school to pick one up.  How considerate of her.  But, I did have a pie crust in the fridge.....and brainstormed as to what I could fill it with.  I went with a Chocolate Chip Pie.  I thought 7th grade kiddos would like that hopefully.  It is cooling right now on my window sill.  The window is cracked even though it is under 40 degrees here at the moment.  Can't wait until we can open the windows and doors for real! 

Here is the recipe I used if you would like it.  It comes in very handy with the words..."Mom, I need a pie."

I suggest not driving by my house on the way to deliver it to school or you might find it missing! :)
