Apple Pie

My mom sent me this fun apple pie cutout the other day and I'd been anxious to make one ever since. So yesterday I went at it. I've made an apple pie once before but did a crumb top so this was my first real attempt. The top broke when I put it on so it didn't turn out as pretty as it could of, but it wasn't half bad. I'm on a diet right now so I resisted having a piece, but Chad said it was wonderful. He also said he wasn't a crust person, but he loved the crust on this. So if any of you are interested, here's the recipe. And thanks again mom for the fun new kitchen tool!


Oh, and I almost forgot my funny story...

Today I was going out shopping with the boys. I ran upstairs real quick to get my shoes on and when I got back down Devan and Tristan had pulled a chair up to where the pie was and were hovering around it. As I got closer I noticed a fork right dab in the middle of it, and Devan turns around and says, "mmmmm... I LOVE apple pie mom, I LOVE it!" I couldn't help but to crack up.

I'll say it again, that pie looks delicious. And I'm with Michelle on the diet shmiet, however I am far from long and lean, so I guess that means you can't listen to either of us! Haha!

Another cruiser, eh? Sweet!
