Hi everyone! Annie here from the blog Wattlebird. I'm so happy Meg is giving me the chance to share one of my greatest fall accomplishments to date! Without further ado, I give you... Apple Pie for Dummies!
This year, my main goal for the fall was to bake an apple pie completely from scratch. I'm not much of a baker, but I was really hoping said pie would at least be edible and taste like, well, a pie. I'm so happy - I met and exceeded that standard!
Clearly, as this was my first pie-making experience, I did not make my own recipe, but I did mesh a few other ones together. I used this one to make the crust, this one for the filling, I made the top crust glaze from this one (only half the amount though).
It took a looooong time, but it was actually really fun and fulfilling. And it tasted realllllly good if I do say so myself. I might start making pies more often, then I hope my life just becomes like an episode of Pushing Daisies (but without the death stuff probably). Who else misses that show??
Thanks again to Meg for allowing me to share my experience as a pie maker! Stop by and visit my blog, if you'd like. I'd love to "meet" you!
Congrats on your pie making success Annie, it looks AMAZING! If you ever open up that Pushing Daisies pie shop let me know and I'll for sure be the first in line. ...I miss that show so much.
