Lets Bake: Apple Pie

So I gave in. Hayden has been asking and asking to make an apple pie. He even tried to give me a recipe. I couldn’t take it any longer so I thought that I would try. I am in the baking mood after all, and maybe making pie is not as hard as I thought it would be.
I once again turned to the goddess of country goodness Paula Deen for help. And she did not disappoint. I found her recipe for apple pie and the perfect pie crust but I am not that talented nor do I have that kind of time so I opted to the store bought crust.

Here are the ingredients.

First you need to peel and cut up all the apples. Hayden wanted to help, so I let him, forgetting of course that the peeler is a knife. So of course, being my son and inheriting the clumsy gene, he cut his finger. Not bad, just a little slice but bad enough for a Scooby Doo band-aid. He was able to continue on as my assistant. Brave boy!

After all the apples have been peeled and sliced, mix then with the juice of one lemon. In a separate bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Then pour the sugar mixture over the apples and stir.

Once it is all combined, pour it in the pie crust. This is when you would roll out the dough if you made your own but I didn’t so just imagine me rolling out the dough and making it all pretty in the pan.


Then in the oven it goes to bake. Hayden told me that we had to make sure that we kept our eye on it. And that is what he did, Quinn tried to see too.
Lastly, after dinner and a bath its time to enjoy. Yum!
