An American Classic
Here she is. The latest in my pie adventures.
Good Ol' Apple Pie. Exquisitely simple. Extremely delicious.
Now that I've earned my "dough chops," so-to-speak, pie has become a whole new ball game.
The obnoxious child in me wants to get decorative and crazy.
But, something in my inner being told me to start where everything starts, at the beginning.
And, just like A starts the alphabet, so Apple starts the pie list in the sky.
So, I eventually told my overzealous alter-ego to calm the fuck down, and I went out and got some Granny Smiths and Fujis. Mixed them with some lemon zest, cinnamon, allspice, sugar, flour, and threw them into this bad-boy.
Simplicity. It's always a good place to start.
