Earlier in the season, we bought bushels and bushels of apples to make our own applesauce. On our last trip, we bought Gala and Stayman apples -- perfect for apple pies. And, I don't make apple pie without having my Cousin Peggy's recipe close by. Cousin Peggy makes the best apple pie.
I haven't managed to make a decent homemade pie crust yet, but I rely on Peggy for the filling. Here is her simple, but wonderful, recipe:
Sometimes, I make a crumb crust. Other times, I use a double-crust, like last time.
Either way, it's good!
It's a beautful, fall day and more apples are waiting on the kitchen counter. Apple pie, anyone?
