Fun House: S2, Ep 2... Tollhouse Jack Pie & Pie Hats

Welcome to Muddy's Fun House: Super Fantastic At Home Bake-a-long and Variety Show... with your host, Kat from Muddy's!

(New to the Fun House? Here's a little FAQ about the show)

For Episode 2 of Season 2, we make a well loved Muddy's recipe that tastes like a chocolate chip cookie in a pie (with a boozy twist)... that's right!!!! During the bake, we discuss quality tips for cooking with alcohol, nut toasting, and how to prep a pie crust. AND THEN we make a super adorable pie accessory.  Have fun with this one!
