Jun 05, 2013

Everyone loves to eat pie but lots of people never try to make one because they think it’s too hard, but here is a simple recipe that will turn you into a pie master!

The cinnamon sweet taste of apple pie covered in melted ice cream is a favorite of many. Or maybe you are more of a pumpkin, chocolate cream, lemon meringue lover!? Whatever your fave variety all pies start out the same way, with a light, flaky delicious crust!

Once you have this recipe down pat you can use it to create any of type of pie using whatever seasonal berries or fruit are available or fill with various custards or creams. The pie-ssibilities are endless!

Classic Apple Pie

Ingredients:

Pastry

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup + 2 tbsp shortening
  • 4-6 tbsps ice cold water

Filling

  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 8 medium peeled, thinly sliced apples
  • 2 tbsp butter

Instructions:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine flour and salt. Add shortening then using a pastry cutter cut it until it is in pieces the size of small peas (Hint! If you do not have a pastry blender you can use two table knives by pulling them through the shortening in opposite directions)
  2. Sprinkle the flour and shortening mixture with ice cold water, 1 tbsp at a time. Between every tbsp stir with a fork to moisten the mixture. When all the mixture is just moistened stop adding water
  3. Press pastry into a ball and divide in half, flatten and wrap in plastic wrap
  4. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or until dough is firm and cold, if refrigerated for longer allow the dough to soften slightly before rolling
  5. Heat oven to 425F
  6. On a floured surface, with a floured rolling pin roll the dough out into a circle large enough for your pie plate, allowing for the deep sides
  7. Gently fold pastry in half and lift into the pie plate, unfold and press the dough into the plate and up the sides.
  8. Set pie crust aside
  9. In a large bowl mix sugar, ¼ cup flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt
  10. Stir in peeled, cored, sliced apples and toss in sugar mixture until all the apples are completely coated.
  11. Spoon apples into the prepared pie crust
  12. Cut butter into small pieces and sprinkle over top of the apples
  13. On a floured surface roll out the remaining half of the dough in a circle large enough for the top of the pie
  14. At this point you can get creative and use cookie cutters to make shapes in the dough
  15. Gently lift the pie dough onto the top of the apple pie
  16. Trim the overhanging crust from the edge and press the bottom and top crust together around the rim of the plate
  17. Cover the edge of the pie with a 2-3 inch strip of foil to prevent it from burning
  18. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the top is brown and juice begins to bubble
  19. Remove the foil around the edge of the pie during the last 15 minutes of baking
  20. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream

My grandmother was diagnosed with liver cancer around two months ago, and she had gotten better. All of a sudden she landed in the hospital last week because of a urinary tract infection that has pretty much turned her into a vegetable (a person who is impaired physically/mentally). The doctors say that she's fine, but she isn't responding to anyone who is talking to her. I know that my grandmother is dying, and I doubt she'll last another week. The thing is that I live in a different country and I don't have the money to go all the way to Mexico to visit her. So I decided to send a message to one of my aunts (her daughters) to tell her that I'm going to miss her. But I need help. I have difficulty with projecting my emotions into words, so I don't know what exactly to say. The same thing happened when my other grandma died (my mom's mom). I really need some help. If I don't say anything, I know I'll be guilty for the rest of my life and my family members might end up hating me for not saying anything.
