In further salute to fall foods, I made apple pie for dessert last night. John and I literally have bag-fulls of apples and so I decided to take a few and turn them into a tasty treat.
I made the pie from scratch with a combination of recipes from the book above (if you have this book, I combined the apple pie recipe filling with the crust and baking instructions from the lattice top peach pie). I highly
recommend William Sonoma's Essentials of Baking book. Every recipe I have tried has been sensational. Per usual, though, I had to make a slight adjustment to the recipe since we didn't have any lemon juice. I squeezed a tablespoon full of fresh orange juice instead, and it turned out great!
I'm currently fighting the urge to run into the kitchen and polish off the remaining 3/4 of the pie... maybe just one more little piece:)
Pie looks delicious! Would love to try it. Thanks for the rec. I have been trying to find good apple pie recipes :)ReplyDelete

I would love this recipe from you if you don't mind. Paul would think he'd died and gone to heaven if I managed this one!ReplyDelete
