Between Tuesdays with Dorie and French Fridays with Dorie there have been quite a few apple recipes in the last few week. This weekend we decided to take our kiddos apple picking since perfect fresh apples would have been perfect in these recipes. Unfortunately we had an apple picking fail. Even though the website said we could pick until mid November, they actually were out of pick your own apples 5 weeks ago. I had already picked up a bunch of apples though so even though we didn't get to pick our own we were still set to bake.
This week's recipe, All American Apple Pie, was chosen by Emily of Sandmuffin. She is also the wife of a rock star and mommy of 2. :) Check out her site for the recipe and her fun posts.
I have to admit, I was overconfident going into this pie and then I thought it was going to be an apple pie FAIL, but then it tasted great so it was a Win instead. The crust came together easily but I forgot to put the butter on top of the apples and had to rip the top crust off. It got really dark around the edges but no one at our house minded. My son said "Pie! YES!!" Hubby liked it and Munchkin even took a few bites. She said she liked it but wasn't a huge fan.
