Good morning, it’s me, the apple picker from redheadcandecorate.com. Did you go apple picking yet this season? We went 2 weeks ago and picked 4 1/2 bushels. Here we are trying our favorite kind…Empire. They are crisp, juicy, tangy, tart, and sweet. Store bought ones are sometimes okay this time of year, but if you ever go apple picking, try them.
So…why all the fuss about apples?
Apple Pie of course.
Today I’m sharing my Dutch Apple Pie recipe because there seemed to be a lot of interest last month when I mentioned it here At the Picket Fence.
Now, before I get to the recipe…there has to be a story first. In fact, I think eating pie and telling stories are probably 2 of the best pleasures that ever existed. Don’t you?
This Dutch Apple Pie recipe has been tweaked and tweaked to pure perfection over the years. I started making it for my family about 10 years ago and ever since it’s become a tradition this time of year. I’ve made this pie for my husband and daughters, my Mom and Dad, my sisters, and even my neighbors. My neighbor calls me Martha. So, now every Fall I hear, “Hey Martha! When are we getting our Dutch Apple Pie this year?”. It’s hysterical. All in good fun and good friendship.
You will find that this pie is tart, yet sweet. Flakey, yet chewy. Best of all you will find that it is easy as pie. The crust is a no-roll, 10 minute, no-mess crust, that you mix in the pie plate. It takes an hour to make the pie in it’s entirety, and an hour to bake, and about an hour to devour.
From my family to yours…enjoy!
