Last week Mrs. Wilt shared some of her favorite Autumn books. My library had most of them and our favorite one so far is "The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree" by Gail Gibbons. It is the story of Arnold's apple tree and how it changes with the passage of the seasons.
At the end of the story is a recipe for Apple Pie so guess what we made today?!
Here it is all ready for the oven. I cut out pastry oak leaves for the top crust, brushed on some milk and sprinkled it with sugar.
My kitchen needed a little cleaning up after!
An hour in the oven and they are all hot and bubbly. Grace made a mini pie, complete with a pastry acorn on top! So cute!
Mine has a few dark (ok burnt!) spots, but that is what whipped cream is for. :0)
“Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness.”
