Apple Pie! The perfect American recipe to celebrate our country's birth!
I had about 1/2 a recipe of the sweet tart dough remaining from some tart baking. I decided to roll it out and make Maida's big apple pie with it. I made 1/4 recipe of the filling and it filled the dough nicely. Unfortunately, I wasn't very careful with my dough and it tore a bit as I put it together. That caused the apple juices to seep and burn to my silpat during baking. Luckily, this didn't effect the pie except for the juice loss. (If you don't own a silpat I HIGHLY recommend them. See that burned sugar mess? Well, it cleaned up in minutes with little effort. Had that burned to the actual pan I would have had hours of soaking to do and possibly lost the pan.)
Happy 4th of July!!
