Update on One A Day
After I wrote the blog I couldn't help running into the kitchen to start my apple pie. A delicious homemade crust made in the food processor.
Three cups of flour, a bit of shorting and a few tablespoons of cold butter, some ice water and there you go! I always get nervous when rolling out dough, but if you remember to give a dough a 1/4 turn inch each time you roll it will ensure a even rolling. And make sure you check the bottom to make sure it has some flour to prevent sticking. The filling--as easy as pie! Diced apples, cinnamon, lemon zest and juice and a few tablespoons of flour. Cover with second dough and brush with egg wash and don't forget a few slits to let the steam out. Here goes the finished product!
Last night served it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream....Heavenly and it freezes well (if any is left that is)too. Tonight perhaps will make a caramel sauce to dress it up a bit. HMMM
