Homemade Apple Pie
“Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness." ~ Jane Austen.
I will have to agree with Jane Austen on this point. It was a considerable part of my domestic happiness and my stomach was equally happy.
So happy, in fact, that I devoured the entire pie minus one last piece that Aaron snagged before I inhaled that too. If you know me, you will also know that I am not a fan of sweet, sugary things. I can make them and have a piece or so, but I am not tempted by anything sweet.
I have no idea what came over me. I am convinced that my sweet tooth made a surprising entrance that day and I could not stop myself from eating this pie! I am glad to report it has since retracted and I have gone back to my non sweet-eating days.
Whether you have a permanent sweet tooth or you want to be domestically happy, and would like to have this recipe, read more. (Taken from Pioneer Woman)
I did not have pecans, and because I don't like things really sweet, I skipped the caramel topping.
But that did not stop me from inventing excuses to go into the kitchen every twenty minutes to grab a forkful and shove it in my mouth.
Make this at home, and you will find yourself gravitating towards the pie plate with no encouragement from anyone.
Most of all, just do it in the name of domestic happiness.
