Easy as pie, apple pie that is.

So, because I had extra pastry from the turkey pot pie, I thought,’Hmm, I’ve got a few green apples kicking around in my fruit bowl, I am going to waste not want not.’ When I told the kids I was baking an apple pie, the were unfazed. They could care less. See, they just didn’t know that I used to be the apple pie baking queen when I was 19 years old. I was whipping up pies like a crazy person. After the pie came out of the oven, 1 peeked her head in the kitchen and asked, “What’s that smell?” I just nodded like I knew what was about to go down. How did the three kiddies like it? Let’s just say, it lasted only for tea time. It is quite a simple, old, and tasty recipe. Be prepared for no leftovers with this one.
