I lost Sunday morning, you know those weekend morningswhere you keep turning over and going back to sleep. Well I had one. It's nice sleeping in but I lost my morning, the most productive time of the day for me. But I have been able to finish up a few things and even had time to bake an apple pie. Haven't baked a pie in ages. Pie is the one baked item we do finish up around here, not sure why I don't do it more often.
I've got Mom's old crust recipe which is pretty easy. What I like about it the most is it is an easy dough to work with. Doesn't crumble when you are working it. If you're interested here it is:
3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup boiling water
Mix together till smooth, I just use a fork.
Slowly mix in 2 cups flour.
Knead a bit then roll out and bake acording to your favorite filling recipe. I baked this pie for 50 minutes in a 425 degree oven
This is enough dough for a 2 crust pie.
I tried many pie crust recipes before my sister came over to help me one day and said she only uses Mom's old recipe. I could never get the crust from the cloth into the pan without it falling apart. I think the trick is the hot water.
Can't wait to cut into it, I've got the cheddar cheese ready and waiting. My honey wants ice cream. To each his own.
