Munchie Monday


One of my favorite things is apple pie. You might say, “Any fool can make an apple pie.” Not true. Any fool can make an apple pie but it won’t necessarily be a good one. This is a good one.

Apple Pie
Peel, cut, and soak 5-6 tart apples (Granny Smith are great apples for pie) in water and 1 Tbsp of lemon juice. Set aside,
Combine 1 cup of sugar, 2 Tbsp of flour, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1 Tbsp cider vinegar.
Drain the apples and mix into the sugar mixture.
Dump the apple mixture into an unbaked bottom pie crust in a deep dish pie pan.
Dot the apple mixture with 4 chunks of butter,
Place an unbaked pie crust on top of the apple mixture. Pinch the edges to seal. Cut four slits in the top of the crust to let the air escape.
Put foil around the edge of the pie dish. Bake for 50-60 minutes at 400 degrees.
Remove the foil and brush the pie edge with egg whites.
Bake 10 minutes more.
Serve either warm or cold. Warm with vanilla ice cream and a wedge of cheddar cheese is close to heaven.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
