King of Apple Pie

 

I put Ben in charge of apple pie this Thanksgiving.  Gotta love the Better Homes and Garden cookbook, by go-to for staples like apple pie.

I think one of the reasons I rarely have to force anyone to help me make apple pie is because we use the Pampered Chef Apple Peeler-Corer-Slicer.  It is such a marvelous contraption that engages my boys so easily.

As impressive as this looks,this is not a homemade pie crust.  I love that Ben has flour on his forehead.  The sign of a hard workin’ cook!

I must admit that Ben’s enthusiasm for figuring out how to weave the top crust made my heart warm.  This pie was definitely in capable hands.

The results.  I think it looks SO good.  It was hard to not want to nibble it before Thursday.

Ben’s pie was really delicious.  I love an apple pie that has crisp apples in it (we use Granny Smiths) because I’ve never been fond on mushy foods.  So for me, this was a perfect pie.  It was sweet, but not sickening, and the crust was just right. 

From now on, Ben is THE apple pie maker in our family.
