Ah! how long has it been since I baked a pie! And by baking, I mean from scratch. The get your hands all dusty with flour and wipe them off on your jammies kind. The get seduced by the smell of butter and eat a considerable amount of raw dough kind. The fall in love with dough making so much that you decide to make pot-pie for dinner the next day kind. Not the pick up a crust from the frozen foods aisle kind. Nope. And if you choose to go the ready-made crust way, you would have merely assembled a pie. Not baked it. As for the apples, I used a mixture of varieties (read all the leftovers in the refrigerator that I don’t care about enough to know their names). The instructions and recipe came from Smitten Kitchen and Joy of Baking respectively.
