The recipe for the topping yielded WAY too much for the 4 little steaks I made so I ended up having to throw like half of the skillet away because let's face it, what would I use that for? I always tend to keep stuff and it gets thrown away anyway right. Luckily, we didn't have any leftovers like I normally do when I make these recipes.
I would probably make this again with a more delicious piece of steak rather than the cheap stuff we bought. And I'd actually measure the hot sauce per the recipe, not just dab some in there like a lunatic. Thumbs to the side.
Though I didn't hate them or anything, I don't think I would make these again. It's just not my thing to drink on a cold night, I'd rather curl up with some hot cocoa or even coffee. Thumbs to the side. Since I had to buy so much apple cider (thanks to the store ONLY have a huge container) I plan to make all the "apple cider" recipes in the book next. And if anyone knows how to use a percolator please comment below!
Second, the cream cheese would not "beat until fluffy." This is one reason why I hate cream cheese (but it's mostly because of the awful taste). It did not beat even though it had been thoroughly softened enough for it to work. So when I added it to the liquefied pudding mix, it was chunky and wouldn't mixed together.
Lastly, I purchased an already made pie crust because that's how I roll... forgot to bake the damn thing before adding the insides. I literally pour the liquefied pudding and apples into the unbaked crust, realized I didn't bake it, pour it bake out while trying to dab the remaining stuff with a paper towel, and then baked it. And when I baked it, the crust shrunk down so that it only covered the bottom of the pan. Oy vey, I had had enough. I put the insides back into the pan and put the pie in the fridge in hopes that the pudding would set... it did not. What a waste of time, effort, and money. I'll stick to normal pies that don't need cream cheese - because we all know that was the problem LOL JK. Thumbs down.
PS: I have a feeling I didn't buy instant pudding like I thought... that could be the only reason it wouldn't set right?
