welcome to part two of the apple pie saga.
now if you are looking for a homemade pie crust...keep looking cause that's not what i'm doing here. all we're doing here is taking pre-made stuff and creating a very pretty lattice pie crust.
oh i've tried to make my own crust...and i don't have the touch yet. i'll keep trying and someday i'll get it right and then i'll rejoice.
but now is not that time. :)
-one deep dish frozen pie crust
-one package of unrolled pie crust (you will only use one)
-one mason jar of apple pie filling
-1/4 cup of milk
-1/4 cup of sugar
-you will need to leave just a little for the leaves.
-you are going to interweave the strips of the dough the other way now
-press down the ends when you get all the lattice done.
-while waiting for the oven to preheat get a square piece of foil paper and fold in 4.
-cut the foil to create a circle
-cook for 30 minutes
-remove the tin foil
-continue to cook for 30 minutes or until you see the juice boil.
now you have a pretty pretty pie.
and it should taste really good.
we wouldn't know because:
while we weren't looking the dog decided to get on his hind legs and grab and drag the pretty pretty pie onto the floor and proceed to eat the WHOLE *breathe vanessa breathe* whole pie.
i gave him "the stare" he quickly backed away.
and then we went to try to find a pie.
oh yeah did you know that EVERYONE and their DOG buy pies BEFORE thanksgving morning??
we even asked the lady at the bakery in walmart if they had any apple pies left.
she gave me the look as "moron, everyone bought pies yesterday."
k fine so we bought a frozen pie.
and you know what?
thanksgiving was fine.
but i can't wait to finally eat my apple pie. maybe this weekend. i mean i have 6 more quarts. :)
