Apple Pie

6/20/10


After I saw the movie Waitress, I slipped into a Keri Russell induced pie baking state of obsession. For exactly one week. Pie after pie I would bake, and then dump them off on my co-workers. And yet, I never attempted an apple one. I have memories of helping my Grandma and Mom make apple pies, and yet I'd never conquered the All-American dessert myself. Until now. To prove I am patriotic, and to please a few dads this Father's Day, I tackled an Apple Pie.


After consulting 2 of my favorite sources (Smitten Kitchen and my cousin Betsy), I decided to use America's Test Kitchen's Apple Pie recipe, which consists of a butter/vegetable shortening crust. HIGHLY suggested. Flaky, buttery, perfect. I followed SK's notes on the recipe, and cut back on the lemon while doubling the spices. Recipe HERE. I hope everyone enjoyed their Father's Day/Watch US Open Day!

Making crust...




Apples and spices...


Putting it all together...


This looks terrible...


This looks better...




As my cousin Betsy and the rest of my Dutch family say... Eet smakelijk! (Eat deliciously...)

They look delicious Siri! As an apple lover I can totally appreciate the larger chunks you left the apples in. My mom always slices them too thin & its apple mush pie. Good yes, but textural issues abound LOL :)

How are you so tiny and cook/bake like this? I'm so jealous!
