Yes, it's true! I did it. I made an apple pie! And it was much easier than I expected.
The apples smelled wonderful as I peeled them. The smell actually reminded me of my mother, who always ate an apple at night, peeling it as we watched TV. Nice memory.
No, I did not make the crust from scratch. But that's just between you and me, right? And when it came time to vent the top, I figured I might as well be creative. My first Little Red House pie.
And yes, it tasted pretty damn good, if I do say so myself. :)
Thanks for all your encouragement. One slight problem, though. Neither my husband nor my daughter likes apple pie. So I will have to eat the whole thing myself. What a shame!
