A few weeks ago I had an extra day off so I decided to use the apples that I had purchased back in the fall (before they spoiled) to finally make some pies. It was a cold rainy day, perfect for having the oven on. My view out the kitchen window:
I found I had enough to do three, 9" pies so I got to work...
Ready get set go:
My trusty mixer that has an attachment that I'm gonna use to slice the apples. For one pie I would slice it by hand but for 3 it was worth it.
I covered all the apples in this new wrap that is made with vegetable oils. I really like it. Now the apples won't get all brown.
Look at all that waste. Wish I had some composting earthworms but I have to wait until we move! They would love eating this and then making rich soil for my plants.
I'm cheating and using pre-made shells. Most of the time I make my own. I got these to make Thanksgiving pies but I didn't need them for that this year.
The crumb topping for the pies.
Ooops!, I forgot to put the sugar in the crumb topping for the first one, darn. So I spread it on top and it never melted. I carefully removed some of the sugar after it baked and it still was yummy.
This is what it was supposed to look like!
Well, we had three so I gave one to my (computer guru friend) Danny. I always love to give him home made goodies and he loves to get them.
Isn't sharing fun?
