Have you ever made a pie from scratch? I mean the whole thing! Crust and filling? It’s not as hard (or as easy) as you may think! I’ve been called “The Cake Lady” (and didn’t enjoy it) but I think I may have found a new calling in pies as well!
One of my old college roommates came down for a visit and during naptime, we decided to go for it. Let’s make a pie! We used the Joy of Cooking’s deluxe butter crust recipe (because it called for the least amount of Crisco and I like to keep that to a minimum) and Apple Pie recipe. We made the crust, chopped the apples, added some delicious spices and threw it in the oven! Here is Kristin adding the finishing touches: cinnamon sugar on top!
Once baked, it had to cool for 3-4 hours. That is not fun. I prefer to eat my creations moments after they exit the oven and by the time it was cool, I wasn’t hungry anymore! So we had some for breakfast! Here is the finished pie:
Look at that delicious goodness inside!!!
Let me know if you’ve ever tried to make a pie from scratch! If you haven’t – go try and let me know how it goes!
