|My first apple pie|
I dug through my Joy of Cooking (I wonder if anyone in my family has my grandmother's "secret" recipe?) and roughly followed the basic apple pie recipe. I followed the instructions for a 9" crust, and then discovered I have a 10" pie pan. Oops. I will need to fix that if I make this again. But it covered enough., and into the over it went.
Isn't it a thing of beauty? (not) I am obviously not ready to compete with Ever So Humble Pie Company. The whole kitchen smelled delicious, regardless.
But wait! There's more!

We did not get a chance to try the pie (it was late by the time it came out of the oven). If the taste-test of the apple cake is any indication, I think pie will be a keeper. But that awaits the final verdict of the Judge.
