Apple Pie

Miguel has been begging for an apple pie since we went to the Apple Festival a few weeks back...I'm not a great pie baker, so kinda put it off. But I decided to make him a pie today in honor of his homecoming, so here is the story...

My little helpers...preparing the apples.
That is the handiest little gadget for peeling, coring, and slicing apples!
Gracia did all the work...

I used a recipe called Grandma Ople's Apple Pie from
Instead of mixing the sugar, flour, and butter with the apples, the recipe calls
for simmering the sugar mixture on the stovetop for a few minutes
before pouring it over the pie.

So, while the sugar mixture was simmering,
we got the apples in the bottom crust.

Here is the pie before I poured the sugar mixture over it.
I am not a great lattice-maker...I didn't even try to "weave" it!

I was having fun and took a picture of myself and the pie
before it went into the oven.
You can see how the sugar mixture coats the lattice-work.

My oh-so-large oven!

Miguel slept most of the afternoon...he was
surprised to find a baked pie ready when he woke up!

Enjoying the first bite...I have to say that
this is the best apple pie I've ever tasted!!!

Looks really good! I love making pies, but I had never heard of doing that before. I'll have to try it.
