pie has become a breeze for me to make, which may or may not be a good thing.
craving something sweet? good, cause i will whip up the best chocolate cream pie you'll ever have. in the mood for berry something? i make the best blackberry pie west of the mississippi. nuts? i've got pecan. if you are simply hungry, i have pie.
you get the point. lately i've been craving apples. with a flaky, buttery crust and vanilla bean ice cream, obviously.
apple pie is uncontrived, simple and inviting, tart at first bite but sweet and forgiving, and reminds me of home. i like that.
i prefer apple pie at room temperature, after the spices have had time to meet and the flavors are most vibrant. this will definitely be on my dining room table come thanksgiving, among an equally delicious pumpkin pie of course.
