Homemade Apple Pie. Nothing says summer quite like it.
Look at that beauty.
I want to bake a pie- from creating my own dough to filling it with fresh fruit (I’m thinking strawberries or peaches), and then of course serve it a la mode with a scoop of slightly melted vanilla ice cream.
I didn’t really become a fan of pie until the past few years, and unless it’s fresh and homemade, I’m not a fan. I’ve had pies in restaurants (ie: Marie Callendars) and have been less than impressed. Something about it just seems so commercialized and processed, not something that was made with love. And with my food allergies, high fructose corn syrup in the pie crust just aint gonna cut it.
So the challenge begins – make my OWN delicious pie this summer AND find a restaurant that serves the best homemade pie in town. Bring it on.
