It was such a monumental occasion that I have a picture of me with the pie, as seen above.
Don't get me wrong, I've assembled pies before, you know buy the crust pre-made, dump the pie filling from the can in the pre-made crust and then put it in the oven.
It's shameful I know, but I was always intimidated about making pies, because it seemed to be something that mother's and grandmother's did and had a whole science and theory behind the recipe.
Those days are from the past now.
I was watching my amazing friend and roomie Brett whip up these pies from scratch and I thought it was high time I gave it a try.
So with some direction and a recipe from Brett I made the most scrumptious apple pie.
Goodbye days of the cans and pre-made crusts and hello to all the pies I plan on making.
I have a hunch we are going to have a wonderful relationship!
