Easy as pie . . .

The Cottage Master brought home this delicious blackberry cobbler made by Mrs. Smith.

When it came time to pop it into an oven he chose to use our new toaster oven with the convection feature.

According to the directions we could either heat our normal sized oven to the temperature of 400*F and cook the pie for 90 minutes or heat the smaller convection oven to 350*F for only 50 minutes. I was not aware that there would be such a difference in time and temperature between the two ovens.

It probably only saved a few pennies in electricity but I felt so fiscally frugal and earth-friendly. Excuse me now while I go eat my cobbler with a little ice cream on the side.
