Apple Pie Training

Today is Poppy's birthday, so as per usual, I made him an apple pie.  It's his favorite thing for me to make. 

Alli pointed out that we should make 2 so that his doesn't get all eaten in one night by all of us.

So, I made the first one, and the second one was done by Alli and Jon - with my supervising and telling them what to do. 

Alli did the bottom crust and the filling, and so she had Jon do the top.

It was at that point that I got my camera because I asked if he was going to go home and make a pie for his mom and he said something to the effect of, "this never happened."

 So, I had to get pictures for proof!  :)

Alli and Conor did the cinnamon rolls with the left over dough.  

It may have taken a few hours, but we made 2 Apple pies!  I hope they both turned out OK!

Why'd you stop at only two? :)

I like pie.

Katie said...

Stopped at 2 because I only had enough apples for 2... and because it was after 8pm and I can't be up all night baking pies! :)

Barb, I'll have to make you another one soon, I don't know if the one at my house will last much longer. Only about 2 pieces left already!

The pie was perfect, as usual. My Katie makes "the best apple pie ever tasted." The crust is light and flakey and ever crumb gets eat. It's almost sinfully delicious cause you can't stop at one piece. I'm not saying I have some left. It never lasts 24 hours. Thanks Kate!! Your pie certainly trumped my cake.

Also, no one here knows where I hid the cinnamon rolls. They are mine!!

Katie said...

LOL! The cinnamon rolls were vanishing quickly at my house, I had to go in there and get those for you before they were all gone! There was one left after I put those in a baggie for you, and Conor grabbed it quickly while Alli and Jon protested. Jeff didn't get any cuz he was in the man cave and they didn't last 3 minutes after I cut them.

And thanks for the compliments on the pie - we have 1 piece left, I'm trying to save it for Alli. :)

I can almost smell the apples and the cinnamon. YUM! What a creative and fun post of a meaningful activity. Love this.
