It sounds like something from a late night infomercial, but my delightful new apple corer-peeler-slicer really does make quick work of turning 6 Granny Smith apples into clean, even slices. (I’d still rather have McIntosh apples for pie, but they seem to be an East coast apple, not available in stores here.) And this time I even remembered to brush the top with a little milk and sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar.
For the pecan pie I turned to my grandmother’s recipe. Nana was a wonderful baker and I’m glad to have many of her recipes. The pecan pie is easy and never-fail. And the consensus on both pies was that they turned out great, with or without the vanilla ice cream!
If you had to choose one kind of pie, what would it be?
