Don’t you just hate it when you taste something positively divine that a friend made, ask for the recipe, and they refuse to give it? How awkward is that? I have always found it somewhat rude and therefore have made a point to share any and every recipe that has ever been requested of me.
There is only one recipe which has tempted me to stray from this policy, my apple pie. ~Takes a deep breath~ So, today, to force myself to remain generous, polite, and kind to anyone interested, I am posting not only my apple pie recipe but a photo tutorial as well.
This is actually quite easy. The most difficult and time consuming part is simply peeling and “chipping” the apples. In no time at all you will be wowing folks with your apple pie. That is all that I ask, don’t say you got this recipe off of a blog or website or make any other excuses when someone compliments it (although feel free to send them to my site!). When (not if, but when) someone tells you how divine your pie is, I want you to smile graciously and say “thank you”. This is now your apple pie recipe.
Starring roles: Sugar, Apples (at least two different kinds, one being Granny Smith), Lemon Juice, Corn Starch, Vanilla, Pie Crusts (You can make your own, I just use Pilsbury), Allspice, Cinnamon, and a wee bit of apple juice.
