Cooking: My First Pie


So I finally did it, I baked my first pie from scratch, sure the picture isn't perfect, but making a pie from scratch will make you feel a bit like a superhero. As you can not the crust isn't perfect, but I suspect that takes practice. Of course while looking for pie recipes I would choose the more complicated one not really realizing it until I really started sit down and analyze my recipe as I prepared to make it, the pie in question was: Alsatian Apple Pie http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Alsatian-Style-Apple-Pie-105573
It was delicious by the way.

Congratulations on your first pie!

One of my favorite baking cookbooks is Marion Cunningham's Fannie Farmer Baking Book. There's a whole section on apple pie...because it's the sample/training type of pie in the pie chapter. Yum, yum, yum. Lots o' good recipes...and success is quite attainable. :)

Mmmmm- it looks yummy! I am a big pie maker- making apple, pumpkin and pecan for the holidays. In the summer my favorite pie to make is peach. I get my crust recipe from William Sonoma's cookbook about baking- best crust recipe ever!

Congrats! You are one step away from baking a quiche! Up to the next project! (and it looks pretty good to me judging from the photo)

Yum! Looks delicious! :D I wish I was there to help you consume it, hehehe. You're right, pie crust does take practice. The first time I tried to make crust from scratch, I nearly gave up.

Daily, I'll have to keep Williams & Sonoma in mind too. Thanks for the recommendation.
