My Grandmother is known for her delicious crust.
I have been going to learn how to make it for years and just have not gotten around to it. So I decided yesterday was the day. We had exceptionally cold weather for Florida yesterday and nothing sounded better than a roast pork dinner and a homemade apple pie.
I was very excited when I told my family that I was going to be attempting the homemade pie that Natalie wanted to learn and help too.
I made the crust according to my Grandmother's recipe but when it came to rolling it out and putting it in the pie plate I had lots of questions, so I called my Grandmother. She graciously offered to come over and help. (The plus of living within a mile of your Mother, Grandmother, two Aunts, and and Uncle.) Yeah, were a pretty tight nit clan.
She came over to help and then joined us later for dinner. The pie was excellent. I made it with Honey Crisp apples, my absolute favorite.
But the best part was spending time with my Grandmother and Natalie keeping the pie making tradition alive for another generation.
|I'm to lazy to put these pictures in order but here my Gram is showing Natalie how to line the first layer of apples.|
|Here she is showing us how to connect the top and bottom crust so the apples don't ooze out as they cook.|
|This one is a little posed for photographer Dave. LOL|
|Still layering. my Gram looks lost in thought in this one. Ha Ha|
|Love this one, instructing Natalie on rolling the dough out.|
|Love that girl.|
|All done, it was delicious.|
