Published by Amy
I never really appreciated an Apple Pie until recent years. It’s something Granny would make an abundance of each year but being a lover of all things chocolate, I usually prefer to opt for desserts more moreish.
The reason behind Granny’s yearly apple pie bonanza is a little apple tree that now sits in Papa’s garden. It never fails to amaze me the volume of apples such a small tree can produce; but each year, without fail, it gives hundreds and hundreds of deliciously sweet apples.
It was originally a small potted tree, purchased at Woolworths in the 1990s. And as it outgrew it’s pot, it was planted into the garden. Still a rather small tree, it only stands about as high as me. But each year, without fail, everyone is amazed by the fact it doesn’t just snap under the weight of all the apples!
Of course, this sudden influx of apples means Granny needs to get baking, with Apple Pie always being the favourite with friends and family. Papa alone could easily eat a whole Apple Pie (or 3!) in a day…if Granny would let him!
I was rubbish at rolling the pastry for placing into my dish. In fact I almost cried with frustration as it just looked a mess. Sad or what?!! But I filled in the holes…….and was amazed at how lovely it still looked coming out the oven. And tastes wonderful too. But I’m still going to crack this pastry rolling…….!
Interesting, the measurements were very off but we persevered. Slightly upsetting for my daughter though who was looking forward to this.
Hello. Can you clarify what you mean by the measurements being very off?
Fabulous recipe. Have been looking for a similar pastry recipe to the one my mother used to use and have found it – many thanks! Made for my son in law’s birthday dinner and he was in heaven!
How can these measurements be off , they’re exactly the same as I use for all my pastry except for savoury then I just leave out the sugar and add a little salt ? It makes far better pastry than any you can buy !
