I know I’ve been gone a little while, 6 days of straight working, 72 hours of reporting and 24 hours of my oven permantly being on trying to come up with new recipes.
But Im back!
& What better way to come back than a nice plate of apple pie?
A couple of years back I remember sneaking in my living room trying to catch a glimpse of the first American Pie movie. What can I say, my mother was strict? Well, with the American Pie reunion coming up I figured why not make a pie.
On top of everything the weather in New York has had a few of us fooled. You know when you see people go outside with ugg boots and shorts that maybe the weather itself is having mood swings. Well I must say, I’ve never been a fan of apples by themselves. I think maybe it’s the skin on the apples that make me cringe, but apple pie, now apple pie, thats different. Theres hand pies, dutch pies, traditional pies even deep fried apple pies!
The possibilities are endless.
Not to mention, saving time by buying pre made pie dough will make you a hit at the next family get together.
