I don’t like math, but I love pie

May 8, 2010

Yesterday I did something I’ve been really really wanting to do for quite a while now – make a pie completely and totally from scratch. So I set to work peeling apples and rolling dough with help only by my ten fingers and two palms. I was beyond happy when it came out perfect. Seriously, perfect! I don’t mean to brag, but I’m pretty sure it could kick the butt of any premade dough and canned filling pie any day of the week (bring it on pillsbury dough boy!). The crust was flakey and soft and the apples were sweet and tender, what more could a girl possibly ask for?

The crust recipe was from Tartine via Bread Baby.

And the Filling was Martha Stewarts via Handle the Heat.

      Well. despite having been a bar-tender I don’t really “drink” so I drink mostly iced tea – boring I know!

    The one problem with this pie is that it doesn’t go on forever…
