Yep. I made an apple pie. Looking at these pictures has my mouth watering… too bad it’s already  a l l  g o n e  …don’t worry, we shared with friends : )

Also, notice the individual pie in the empty Nutella jar? Inspired by Fossil’s DIY… Perfect for when you are making a dish that you can’t really taste without messing it up. you want to make sure it’s good enough to serve to your friends/family, right??

Here is the recipe I used /// courtesy of Betty Crocker : )



A pie crust

1/3 cup cold water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (3 large)
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
Additional sugar
  • Heat oven to 425°F. Make pie crust. Press into pie pan allowing it to overhang about 1 inch.
  • Stir together 1/2 cup sugar, the flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in large bowl. Add apples; toss. Spoon into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with butter.
  • Roll remaining pastry; cut into 10 strips, each about 1/2 inch wide. Place 5 strips across filling in pie plate. Weave a cross-strip through by first folding back every other strip of the first 5 strips. Continue weaving, folding back alternate strips before adding each cross-strip, until lattice is complete. Trim ends. Fold trimmed edge of bottom crust over ends of strips, building up a high edge. (Or simply roll out another round crust and leave slits for steam, as pictured) Seal and flute. Brush lightly with milk; sprinkle lightly with additional sugar.
  • Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown and juice is bubbly.


This pie really hit the spot for a southern girl who lives very far away from home.

***Disclaimer- I realize that making a pie is the perfect time to show off your creative ability. There are so many ways to make them beautiful. AND I’m an artist. whoops. Besides being an artist, I’m also a mom. A mom who’s little girlie had the hiccups while she was rolling out the dough. So, yeah, mine is a little lame : ) oh well, it tasted amazing!
