Pie # 17 Perfect Apple Pie

Here is the recipe for today’s pie Perfect Apple Pie
  • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
 Perfect Apple Pie
This is our first double crust pie!! I was beginning to think that we wouldn't have one.  So the first thing you need to do is to make the bottom crust.  Go ahead and trim the edges but don’t crimp them. 
Peel, slice and core your apples you’ll need six cups.  HINT I used about 8 cups for a 9 inch pie plate.
Then mix up the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Pour the dry mix and pour it over your apples and toss to coat. Then pour it all into your unbaked pie shell.
017 018 019 Pile the apples nice and high mounding them towards the middle then place your top crust over the top.
020 021 Once your top crust is on you need to trim the edges to match the bottom crust.  Then you fold over the top crust to include the bottom crust then you crimp them together.  I added a little decoration to the top of my pie.  Sometimes I like to brush it with egg white and dust it with cinnamon and sugar.  Today I just added the apples.  Don't forget to add a few slits on the top of your crust for venting purposes. When you’re ready bake it at 425 degrees for 40-45 minutes. ENJOY!!

The Verdict
This pie was also really easy to make.  I would give it a 4.5 for ease of preparation.  For taste I’m not sure what the star value would be but the person who rated this pie said that “between a one and a delicious this pie gets a yummy!”  It was your total traditional apple pie.  I would make this pie again.
and the verdict on yesterdays Real Pecan Pie This recipe was the easiest pecan pie recipe that I have ever used.  It easily gets a 5 stars for ease of preparation.  As for the taste I thought it tasted just like every other pecan pie that I have ever had.  I guess if you like pecan pie and are looking for a super easy recipe to make it I would go with this one.  Though I can’t guarantee it’s outcome since I didn’t actually make a full size pie.  If you were going to make it I would suggest going to allrecipes and read the comments/suggestions that other people have given it.

Stop! Stop it right now, Jaime! You are killing me! What kind of heartless mother of five manages to make a pie every day for an entire month? How do you even get to the store to buy ingredients for these things? I baked yesterday. Just one day. In that one day, my house fell apart, the baby went unchanged, the laundry exploded out of the laundry room door, homework went unchecked, and the dogs went unfed. You must be superwoman, and I wish we could do like we did in college and I could send you to the store with my grocery money and you could just include me in your dinner plans for the week. Instead, my family still eats plain rice wrapped in lunch meat for dinner. So, so sad.
