Apple Adventures | Part 3: The Pie

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Well, this is the culmination of my Apple Adventure Trilogy (Part 1, Part 2). Obviously we're ending with the best part.

The Pie.

I have never made a pie completely from scratch. Usually, I buy the pre-made crust, which I love. This time, however, I had added the culinary endeavor to my Bucket List, so I was really left with no other option.

I was nervous. There was a lot on the line. First Homemade Pie Ever.

My husband knew what I was planning on doing and he thoroughly encouraged my creative efforts. The thing is, Andrew will eat just about anything, so I did have some confidence going into this.

I started by perusing Pinterest. I really should get the family recipes from my Great-Aunt Nancé because her pies at Thanksgiving are seriously the best. The Best. Anyway, onto my own pie adventure.

I ended up using this recipe for the crust, and it was super easy. It turned out AMAZING. Flakey, shortbready, and delicious.

I used this recipe for the filling. I "doctored" it up a bit - adding a little more cinnamon and nutmeg.

It turned out great! I'd say my first homemade pie completely from scratch was a success. And so would my hubby. Thankful for the great crust and filling recipe from Gimme Some Oven!

This pie would be a delicious addition to your holiday parties!

  1. Looks amazing! Was hoping for a recipe.


    1. Hi Sarah! You can find the recipe for both the crust and the filling at Gimme Some Oven (multiple links in the post)! Since this was my first pie, I figured I'd try out a recipe that was well loved rather than make up my own. I'm hoping to make another pie this holiday season, and provide you all with my own recipe :)
