I am not a cookie baking mom – not yet, anyway.
But I am a pie baking mom!
I have loved making apple pie since I was a teenager. My cousin taught me how to make it all from scratch but I’ve changed my ways in the last three years. After a crust disaster one time, I had to buy rolled crust last-minute. I never made my own crust again! I see no point in that and buying the crust means less work, and more frequent pies in the winter months. The crust is the hard part, after all!
My apple pie has a citrus kick to it – and I love it! This is round 2 so far this winter and round 3 is coming in 2 weeks. I can’t get enough!
I messed up and put the pies on the top rack instead of the bottom, so the sugar browned up more than I’d like. That little dish is a treat of baked apples for my little muffin. 😉
