For years, I intended to try to bake this apple pie, according to the directions described in the link above, but I never quite got around to it. And then finally I did -- yesterday afternoon.
|Vacuum County & eight Jonathan apples plus a stick of unsalted butter|
|The dough was made of 4 cups of flour, one cup of milk, one teaspoon each of sugar and cinnamon|
I also cut the stick of butter up into individual pats of butter and let them get even softer by standing a while at room temperature.
|Can you see that butter almost melting?|
Then I started to mix the ingredients for the pie filling.
|I used two tablespoons of coconut flour on top of the apples|
The flour I used for the dough had been regular flour, but I decided on coconut flour for the filling.
|I added the pats of butter|
After the flour, I added the butter.
|I then added one teaspoon each of cinnamon and nutmeg and half a cup of sugar|
After mixing all the ingredients for the filling, I rolled out the bottom half of the dough with a rolling pin between two sheets of wax paper.
I then put the bottom layer of dough in the pie pan.

Next, the filling went into the pan.

Then I flattened the other ball of dough and covered the pie.
I made a few slits in the top layer of dough and then baked.
It was not as beautiful and perfect as Julia's pie, but I was happy with it.
|Cuttting a generous slice|
Bow really enjoyed his slice of pie and so did I.
In twenty-four hours, between us, Bow and I managed to consume half the pie.
I had better not eat any more, or I will not be able to fit into my Vacuum County T-Shirt!
