Apple Pie

Can you believe I made my very first pie from scratch a couple weeks ago?

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!


  1. That pie looks amazing! Pretty impressive!

  2. That apple pie masterpiece was your FIRST one? It looks like you've been baking pies for years. I love them warm out of the oven with scoops of vanilla ice cream on top.

  3. Congratulations! Very, very cool. :)
