grandmama’s apple pie!

There might be nothing more fun than to spend an afternoon with Grandma and her little movable kitchen island. The sweet cutting-board-pastry-platform would come in handy in ay home or kitchen, mind you!

apple pie!
























Now just because I am calling this apple pie “Grandma’s,” does NOT mean that it has not or cannot be adapted…every pie reserves its maker the right to “spice” it up a little…and for this pie, the story’s no different!
























Begin with:

6 medium-sized Granny smith apples

1 c. sugar

1/4 t. salt

1 t. Jamaican Island Spice seasoning (cinnamon, clove, allspice and nutmeg combo)

instructions: peel and slice apples…toss around in sugar + spices + salt…set aside.

for the crust:

2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 t. salt

10 T. butter cut into small piece

4 T. + more ice-cold water

instructions: cut butter pieces into flour with pastry cutter. slowly add T. by T. of ice cold water to mixture, working dough together with hands until just combined. Be careful to not overwork the dough…roll dough out onto floured surface after dividing dough ball into two separate pieces.

get in my belly!























instructions continued: after gently placing bottom crust into pie pan (or pottery pie dish) empty apple mixture into pie crust and then finish the job with the other pie crust…decorate or sculpt pie crust to desired appearance. Bake for 1 hour at 375 degree oven. Cool before serving….or…

























…you could also serve the pie as our family does…


need icecream?























…and THAT’s warm/hot with vanilla ice cream!


a la mode























It’s a funny thing, really…this pie was for my cousin Sara’s birthday celebration…after which I attended this youth leaders meeting with a sort-of cute guy leading a I looked like such a slop…oh well!
























At LEAST the pie was perdy today πŸ˜€
