I do very little baking, but every once in a while I'll bake a cake or a tart. I make a pretty good pie crust, but I'm usually making a crust for a savory dish. I had a whole bag of granny smith apples, so it seemed like a good time to try baking an apple pie.
I sliced the apples and tossed them with brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon zest, orange zest, flour and lemon juice. I made a double pie crust and brushed the top with an egg wash and a sprinkling of sugar.
What a gorgeous pie! My wife and I served the still warm pie with some vanilla ice cream, and couldn't wait to dig in. Heavenly! Delightful! Delicious! These are adjectives that should not be applied to my pie. Too much zest! Questionable lemon from refigerator! Undercooked apples! These were the actual words used to describe said pie. If I try to bake another pie, I'll try not to make it too tart, and I'll try to cook it a little longer; 50 minutes at 375 degrees F. was not enough.
At least it looks delicious!
