Friday Tip - Perfect Pies

This year for Thanksgiving I decided I wanted to try my hand at homemade apple pie.  Pie crust perfection has always alluded me so I went trolling the internet for the perfect pie crust recipe. One link led to another and finally I literally found "the perfect pie crust."  I experimented using the almond crust which is referenced in the actual apple pie recipe I used found here.  I also used the extra dough and apples I had to make this gallette and it was divine.  Don't tell, but I think I liked it a little better than the pie. 

 This is what the cream and egg wash looks like before baking.  The beautiful color it gives a pie's crust was a revelation.  

The finished product.  Yummy.


  1. That pie looks amazing! How about an encore for Christmas?

  2. HEy there Mary. I love your blog. I have had mixed results with pie crust, too until I threw in the towel on doing it by hand/pastry blender/two knives and just used a food processor (like in the recipe you linked to). Your apple pie looks awesome. Thanks for the cute card. Can't wait to see you guys next time you are in CA.
