Trials and Tribulations
Running a sporting camp is a tough job. We constantly need to work on providing the best experience for our guests that we can. To do that, we sometimes find ourselves needing to tackle tough jobs like taste testing lots and lots of desserts. For instance, tonight it was Boston Cream Pie. We hadn’t made a Boston Cream Pie yet this summer, and we hadn’t yet tried the recipe we used. (It came from one of the Betty Crocker cookbooks, I believe.) It came out pretty well, although we all agreed that it could use 50-100% more cream filling and a chocolate top that maybe wasn’t quite as stiff as it was. (Picture a nice thick layer of chocolate fudge.) Luckily, we found another recipe that we can try, one which (I just found out) uses thirteen eggs for one 10” pie. I have a feeling that there’s going to be some more taste testing in the future. It’ll be tough, but it’s for a good cause.
