Saturday Baking - Apple Pie

On Saturday I made two apple pies using recipes from the cook book The Pie and Pastry Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum. The first three pictures are of the The Best All-American Apple Pie. The pie dough was hard to work with while rolling it out. I thought is was too dry. It was tearing and not staying together. The finished pie shell was fine and it tasted good. I used Granny Smith Green Apples in this pie. The apples tasted good in the pie. I did have a little problem with juice coming out between the bottom pie shell and the top pie dough. I guess I didn't have it sealed well enough.

The second apple pie was made using the Apple Crumble Pie. In this pie I used Gala Apples. My family and I like this pie better than the first pie. They were both good, but the Apple Crumble Pie was our preference.


  1. This apple pie looks so delicious, great work! I would love to go wild baking, but there wouldn't be anyone to eat my creations but me (my husband isn't a sweets kind of guy)!

  2. What a delicious looking apple pie! If your goal was aesthetic beauty you aced it....but I bet it was extremely delicious too!
