For the LOve of Pie

Brooklyn TexasComment

It's finally Autumn! 

Olivia picked some fine tiny apples:

Emily chopped them up and put them in a pie:

Here's how to do it yourself:

Heat your oven to 350F

Peel the apples and cut them into slices

Put about a tablespoon of lemon juice on them -- more if you're not using Granny Smith

Add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons of flour, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon in, and mix it up with the apples really well! The apples should coat nicely. If the mixture isn't sticking and seems too liquidy, add some more flour. If it seems too dry, add some water. 

Roll out your pie crust. I usually use this recipe, but this time I cheated and used a frozen pastry crust. They're just as good most of the time =) Add the filling and distribute about 1/3 of a stick of butter in chunks across the top. Add a top crust, cover in an egg wash (egg yolk + some water) and cut a cute design into the top. Make sure the edges are sealed and stick into the oven! It usually takes between 45 and 60 minutes until it's golden enough to take out.
