My daughter mentioned today that I should add a recipe to my blog. Everyone loves a good recipe. As we began to talk about what food would be good for summer, my husband mentioned apple pie. Then I said what about Father’s day-he again said apple pie. What about Christmas I added, apple pie again was the response.
So it seems the recipe of choice should be apple pie. It is the perfect choice for any holiday. I found a recipe for a Carmel apple pie a few years ago and it has become a favorite in our house. I make it in the summer and for most winter holidays. Today I made a Dutch apple pie because I wanted a chznge. It was a hit.
Apple pie is also a good choice because it is so easy. Peeling and chopping the apples then making the pie crust are the most difficult parts. You can buy the crust if your in a pinch.
2 pie crusts
8-9 granny Smith apples
1/2 cup butter
3 Tbs flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
(I added cinnamon about 3 tsp and nutmeg)
Core and peel the apples
Place 1 pie crust in the bottom of the pan
Place sliced apples in the pan
Cover with lattice top
On top of the stove mix butter, sugars, flour and spices
Bring to boil stirring frequently. It should be smooth not grainy when done.
Pour over lattice top and in holes to cover and fill the pie. Cook on 350 degrees for an hour or until the top becomes bubbly.
Pull out and let the pie sit for at least an hour for best results.
Have a wonderful holiday!!
