Apple Pie

Since it’s almost Christmas and it’s cold, I decided to make Apple Pie. I think what makes a great pie is the crust, a bad crust could ruin a good pie for me. I have used this recipe for years and it’s always been great for me.


Buttermilk pie crust

-          2 cups flour

-          1tsp salt

-          2/4 butter

-          5-6tsp milk


- Mix together salt & flour, then add melted butter & milk.

- Mix till crust is not crumbling, separate into two balls of dough. (be careful NOT to add too much milk, you don’t want a thin pie crust.)

- Roll one ball out and put crust in the bottom of (greased) pie pan.


Apple pie

-          4 apple

-          ½ cup sugar

-          Pinch of nutmeg

-          Pinch of cinnamon

-          Pinch of allspice


- Heat oven to 425 degrees F.

- For the  pie I cut 4 apples, mixed all spices together, then add apples and mix together.

- Roll out the last ball of dough & add to top of pie, I usually make the crust lattice but I was being lazy and didn’t this time.

- Bake 40-50 minuets.

I sprinkled my pie with a little bit of cinnamon.
