So this is a recipe re-do. I made it in the first few months of this blog. And, well, I’m not proud of how the post looks. When Ashton mentioned doing a re-do post and making it a blog hop, I knew immediately that I was going to re-make this pie.
You see, this pie is special. One, my husband loves it. He cannot turn it down (and ate two slices of it).
And two, it’s the pie that inspired the blog name. Because we love the crust and the crumb of this pie more than the apple filling and one night, chowing down, the idea for a crust-loving store/site/something was born.
And now, here I am, a few years later, working on that dream.
So this pie needed a new place here on this site. Badly.
Plus, it’s always good to re-do some things in life. What would you re-do, if you could?
I would definitely go back and pay more attention to the HTML unit in my programming class in college, instead of copying off my future husband.
I would re-do so many things about my wedding. The colors (um, evergreen? really?) and the attendants.
But not the cake. No way, I wouldn’t change that for the world.
I’d go back in time to the sixth grade and tell myself, do NOT crimp your hair for your school photo. Have you ever seen someones head look like a triangle?
Oh, and for sure I would go back to when I saw City of Angels (you know, Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage) and leave 10 minutes before the ending. I stayed until then end of the movie, and it still haunts me.
I might have re-done the pictures of this pie, and the post. But I will never change the ingredients or the way I make it. Except maybe to add more crumble. More crumble is always better.
My secret in this pie? I cook the apples a little before adding them to the pie crust. I don’t like chewy apples. (Are you surprised?)
I also make my crust with butter only. No offense to shortening users. I’m just not a huge fan. So I use all butter.
Butter is good.
Tart apples. Sweet cinnamon. Crunchy, sweet, crumbly topping. Add some ice cream and you’ve got a meal.
Hmmm…I may have to re-do it again. I don’t know if I like the pictures enough…
