Make a carmel sauce to spoon over it, and with vanilla ice cream to boot!

Make a crumble topping using melted butter with brown sugar you can add chopped pecans and it will be a praline topping. Just melt butter add sugar to begin to dissolve add nuts stir constantly. Pour over pie.

Is it salvageable? Sometimes it's time to say oops and toss it out. I imagine you could add more sugar and mix it in but it would be more of a glop rather than a (presumably) crisp, but will it taste right? I hate to waste food, but I've had enough mistakes that should just be written off that I weigh the pros and cons on whether to try to salvage it.

I'd use it for bird food! I made a terrible apple pie last year that I just put in the back yard. The birds picked the plate clean!
