I've never made a pie/been a baker. I love baked goods but I've never really attempted, I mean I just learned how to make a good chocolate chip cookie last year--the most basic of all bakingdome.
I saw this recipe on www.ourbestbites.com and my love for all things cute and cuddly I had to try it. It has been on my brain forever. I used this recipe for the apple filling with a little doctoring from one of the comments left on the blog...specifically this one: This is a wonderful recipe. I added 1-2 TBLS lemon jiuce, 2 TBLS flour, 1/2 teas vanilla 1/4 teas nutmeg and used brown sugar instead of white. Then mixed the seasonings with the apples before putting it in the crust. I won first prize at a local Farmer's Market apple pie contest so thanks! I cooked it longer- more like 55 minutes so next time will do the 10 minutes at 450, then 40 minutes at 375 I think will work great. It might be my stove so just wait until it is bubbling.
I admit I haven't actually eaten the pie yet (I'm making a special Valentine's day dinner tomorrow night for Adam and I so I'm saving the pie a la mode for dessert) but it looks great and I hope it tastes as good as it looked!
