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!

Awesome tips. I have definitely burned some pie tops in my day. It's usually because it's just not golden enough to my liking so I pop it back in the over for "just a few minutes" and end up forgetting about it! I will be filing these tips away for the next time I do that. Thanks!

Burnt pie crust: Excellent cherry pie albeit with burnt crust became a "Cherry Chocolate Fizzle" by brushing powdered sugar on the crust to sweeten the dark brown collar and on the embarrassed face of the pie, and then drizzling a thin line of chocolate syrup along the edge of the crust to provide moisture to the dry, burnt offering when it's eaten (or thrown out) followed by drizzling chocolate syrup thinly, artfully on top of pie. Alternatively, try sprinkling powdered sugar after the chocolate syrup is administered. Neither the chocolate syrup nor the powdered sugar is strong enough to influence the taste of the cherry filling which survived the inferno.
