This is the best part of food blogging, you know the need to make apple pie and homemade ice cream during the day. It needs to be during the day so that I have the best light to take the photo. And once you dish up a slice of pie topped with homemade ice cream, it must be eaten immediately.
The worst part is the huge pile of dishes I seem to dirty, I really need an assistant who is willing to wash dishes! Volunteers?
Pie makes the boys so very happy, it is their favorite, unless it’s coconut. I baked this pie in my cast iron skillet, which makes the crust turn out just perfect. A few friends have confessed that they don’t own cast iron skillets. I can’t imagine not cooking with cast iron! How about you?
