Apple Pie Recipe and Bad Weather...It's Spring

4/10/11


As promised, the apple pie recipe. I have no fancy name for it...it's just apple pie. So make it yours and enjoy it.

Apple Pie
Ingredients:
2 single pie crusts(frozen is fine)
2 lbs of mixed apples, peeled cored and sliced to 1/8" thickness
3 TB flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 TB lemon juice
2 TB butter
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Roll out a single pie crust to 1/8" thick, place in a pie tin and refrigerate.
Roll the remaining pie crust to 1/8" thickness and place on a parchment paper. Keep in the refrigerate till ready to use.
Toss apples, flour, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, salt, and lemon juice together and mix till combined.
Brush the bottom crust with egg white, this helps it from getting soggy.
Pour the apple mixture into the prepared pie pan.
Dot with the 2 TB butter cut up into little pieces.
Pour the heavy whipping cream over the apple mixture.
Top with the remaining pie dough. Trim, leaving 1/2" overhang, fold under and crimp the edges.
Cut slits to vent the pie, or use and 'ol fashion pie bird.
Sprinkle the top of the dough with 2 TB white sugar, chill for 10 min.
Bake at 350* for 60-80 min or until the apples are tender and crust is brown.
You may tent with tinfoil if the edges seem to be getting to brown.
Transfer to wire rake to cool.
Serve warm or cold with a huge scoop of ice cream.

Next week I will share my pie crust recipe. It simple and goes perfect with my apple pie recipe.

With the high 80's* today comes the threat of tornadoes. And we are right in the middle of where they expect them to be tonight. I love thunderstorms....the sound of the rain on the roof, the smell of a storm coming and the clouds rolling in are so peaceful to me. BUT I'm terrified of tornadoes. 3 years ago we had a '5' tornado run through our area, 4 miles from our farm. The damage was horrific for the folks in it's path. People and animals were tossed like rag dolls, and so many families lost everything. The damage we suffered was minimal compared to others.  A tornado has a mind of it's own. It chooses to take one home and not another, it can decide to change course from one side of the road to another and it can disappear and then reappear 15 miles down the road if it chooses. They are mesmerizing, beautiful and terrifying all at the same time. They scare the hell out of me.

The power has just gone down, and I only have a bit left on this battery, so I'd better go and button down the hatches....it looks as if the storms are arriving.

Till next time, stay safe and pray that these storms are kind and take no lives.

  1. YAY! I am so glad to have found out that you have a blog! And now I am following you! I am glad the storms didn't get too bad for you. We had severe weather last week...like you said...amazing, but here in the lightening capital of the world, it can be really scary, too!
    There was a tornado to the NW of Orlando that turn things upside down at an air show, and at a friend's house.

    HUGS to you! Love your blog!
