Phewwww....I got called a racist! Hahaha...How can you be a racist and vote for Obama? Go figure! The main reason for yesterday's post was to give people outside of the USA a cross section look at how people think in our country these days. So, if you are interested, go back to yesterday and read the comments. I decided to celebrate the victory by making a good old fashioned apple pie.
Use your favorite crust. I made a pate' brisee.
I sliced up 3 different types of apples. I had Jona Gold, Gala and Yellow Delicious. Mix them with about 1/4 cup of sugar and a few tablespoons of flour.
Roll out your pastry into a circle large enough to fit your pan. Spray the pan with cooking spray.
Place it in the pie plate.
Press it in to fit tightly.
I love having the measured pastry board so there is no guessing the size.
Add the apples and a few pats of butter.
Place another circle of dough on top.
Crimp around the edges and brush the top with cream.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Cut some steam vents.
Bake it in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
The juice should be bubbling and look thickened.
Let it cool before cutting.
Just a good old fashioned apple pie.
Top with vanilla ice cream or serve with a slice of good sharp cheddar cheese. Being the ice cream hater that I am, I go for the cheese every time!
I was very confused by the racist comment and when I am confused I usually keep my mouth shut.
I'm gonna go milk my goat.
I guess we have the right to free speech as long as we say what they like.
Thats one beautiful pie, I have made your other apple pie with the caramel topping a number of times and its a favorite with our family, I think I'll go make a pie too.
Just remember , we can't please all the people all the time, have a good day,
Patriotism often leaves me cold, especially American patriotism (just like apple pies, to be honest), but with the re-election of Obama you have every right and every reason to be patriotic.
I enjoyed yesterdays post - you really stirred something there :)
Love the pie, I'll bet your home smelled delicious!

I'm glad the election is over. I was planning on voting for Obama again (as I did in '08) but after my party tried desperately to remove all traces of God from their platform......I just couldn't stomach it. I've been a Democrat all my life but feel now like my beloved party has "left" me behind.
Looks like you may have lost a few followers..but it's their loss. They will probably sneak back and read your great recipes and then sneak back into the darkness of cyberland. LOL
