In addition to the potato salad I made for 4th of July this year I thought it would be appropriate to make an apple pie as well. My dad had brought down more jars of canned apples for pie making only a week before so they were just staring me in the face begging to be made. How could I say no?
Using one jar of apple pie mixture (recipe will be for another day, sorry) and another jar of spiced apples, plus a couple more apples and a store-bought crust I made a delicious pie that I took with me along with the Red, White and Blue Potato Salad to my friend’s 4th of July celebration (and a can of whip cream!) and we all enjoyed a nice big slice while celebrating our country’s independence. This post isn’t about making the apple pie mixture, but I did make some videos to see part of the process. Here’s Part 1 and here’s Part 2.
One of the things that makes an apple pie especially good is packing it with apples. So check out the first video where I use lots of apples! And while some recipes call for making your own pie crust, you can save a lot of time by using a store-bought crust. And I promise there isn’t a big taste difference. And you save a LOT of time and energy. Here’s part 2, assembling the pie and baking it! You can see on the oven my pot of potatoes boiling for the potato salad. I love to multitask!
