Yesterday morning I got up to 30 mile an hour winds, cold and rainy. The day before it was 80 and I'm nursing a mild sunburn and trying to wear a sweater. Grrrr! Mother nature is driving me nuts and I so wish she would just make up her mind already. I am so over this one day it's hot and the next day it's cold garbage. This year is the worst i have ever seen. Okay the rant is over and back to the pie.....
There's nothing better on a cool drizzly morning than the smell of apple pie baking. All that cinnamon and apple goodness just makes you feel good smelling it.
My apple pie of choice is my apple pie in a bag that I make and freeze. It is just as simple as taking it out of the freezer and letting it thaw for an hour or so.
Then add it to your favorite pie crust recipe
Cover with your second crust. Brush on a little milk and egg white whipped together. Then sprinkle a little brown sugar over the top and vent. Then Bake!
I took the left over pie crust dough and rolled it out and brushed it with the left over egg white and milk. Then sprinkled sugar and cinnamon over the top and baked until brown and flaky. I remember my mother doing this when I was a little girl. Baby O was waiting on these when they came out of the oven. Just a little treat to carry her over till the real pie was cooled. Great with a cold glass of milk.
We could hardly wait for supper.
You can find the pie in a bag recipe in my canning recipes. Enjoy!
Sure hoping for a bumper apple crop this year to replenish my pie in a bag stock in the freezer. Works great with peaches too.
