the whole story: a response to kaytie's puff pastry challenge post

First of all, you should read Kaytie's post. Once you're finished, come back to this post to hear the whole story.

One thing that should be noted is that Kaytie had an unfair advantage. Just look at this shirt her sister made. They were clearly trying to psych me out.

There's another important detail that Kaytie just happened to omit. Though her brie and honey turnover did win for best dessert, Kaytie forgot to mention that, when all of the points for all of the desserts were totalled, there was an overall tie!

Besides, how creative is brie and honey? That's just a cheese plate. My number one pastry was a sweet potato pie turnover with candied bacon. Candied bacon!!

Candied Bacon

thick-cut bacon
brown sugar
baking sheet
one of those racks for cooling baked goods

Line a baking sheet with foil and put the cooling rack on the baking sheet. Dredge the bacon in a bowl of brown sugar, and lay the bacon on the rack. Sprinkle more brown sugar on top of the bacon. Bake at 325 for about 10-15 minutes, checking to see when the bacon is crispy. Allow the bacon to cool before eating. Enjoy!

We'll keep you posted on the outcome of the next challenge. I'm predicting a victory. A victory for me.
