Remember I told you I made an apple pie the other day.....well....
It didn't take long and it was........
So...I thought I would share the recipe. I have to tell right up front, I am not a cook, but I love to bake....that's my thing. Probably because I love to eat all things sweet and yummy! One thing tho I can't do is make pie crusts, my Mother in Law says, maybe your not old enough :) I should probably try again, afraid of failure, I guess or just hate to ruin a good apple pie to a yucky crust.
So, the filling is as follows; I actually got it from a Better Homes and Garden magazine years ago:
Heat oven to 425 degrees
3lb of apples-peeled and cut into chuncks- I use Gala apples, I love how they cook up.
1/8tsp ground nutmeg
1T lemon juice
2T butter cut up
After you have peeled and cut up your apples I put them in a large bowl and add the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and lemon juice. Add to your crust and top with the cut up butter. Place your top crust on and brush with a egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Place the pie on a baking sheet (I use a pizza pan) and bake at 425 for 15 minutes then turn temp down to 375 degrees for about 45 to 50 minutes or until your apples are tender.
This recipe is so easy and so yummy; even my hubby likes it better than his Mom's, shhh we won't tell her that tho!
The cooler weather and leaves turning has definately gotten me in the "fall decorating" mood; I am going to try and get some projects done this weekend.
