Menu Monday feat. Apple Pie by Author Carole Brown
Welcome I am super excited you are here today.
I have a special feature an Apple Pie recipe graciously provided by author Carole Brown from her book
Toni DeLuca’s Yummy Apple Pie
2 cups all purpose flour
½ cup Crisco
6-7 tbsp of water
Cut shortening into flour until it resembles corn meal. Add water, one tbsp at a time. Add more if needed, but be careful not to over soak it. Divide into half, then roll each half into an even circle and place in pie plate.
Apples (I like to heap my filling, but use however many that suits your taste). Peel and slice into first pie crust liner.
Sugar to taste
Slabs (tsps) of butter (I use about 4-6) placed over the apples
Cinnamon to taste
Sprinkle (LIGHTLY) a touch of vanilla over the filling
Place the second half of the pie crust on top of the filling. Pinch the sides together in whatever simple or elaborate decoration you want. Add top decoration with carved letter, added crust pieces, etc. I usually keep mine simple. Add a sprinkle of sugar on top of crust if desired.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, then turn down oven to 350 degrees and bake until apple pieces are done. Normally about 30 - 40 minutes, and crust is golden brown.
I’m an adjuster when it comes to cooking. Once I’ve learned how a new recipe goes, I will adjust to suit my (or family’s) taste. I might substitute ingredients or change them according to our likes and dislikes.And here are my menu plans . . .
