What the heck do I do with all these apples

Apple pie!

Sunday my favorite sous chef and I made apple pies. First we had to peel and chop tons and tons of apples. Haley peeled and I chopped. Notice the cool apple peeler we have, it even cores and spiral cuts the apples which means I don't really have any chopping to do (don't tell Haley). Also notice my messy messy kitchen and some of my Halloween greatness.

After we prepared all the apples we added some flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon and mixed mixed mixed it all together. Have a look, Notice it's also in the pie shell.

Next we added a dab of butter then covered it in more pastry and cut a few slits in the top.

Throw it in the oven till it's golden and smells delicious. While you wait you should bathe a baby.

Finally we have a finished pie. We actually made 3 to use up all the apples. One for that night and 2 for the freezer for another time.



  1. I have to try this. Do you actually make the crust or buy those? Please tell me you buy them so I can buy them, too.

    And now he has more hair than Neil again. :)

  2. Haha I totally bought those pie crusts, I'm way lazy these days. I bought the ones that were already in the pans and just inverted one to make it the top.

    It's kinda patchy but it's growing way fast. haha Neil :p

  3. That looks SOOOOO yummy! I want a slice. Love the pics of your kids, and the bonus shot of Meyer in the corner :p

  4. Woohoo! When I get back into town after this weekend, I'm so making a pie. I'll take pictures in case it ends up funny.

  5. That's plagiarism, I already did a failed pie blog. :p

    I'm kidding of course. I would love to see your pie.


    That didn't sound right.
