Mmmmmm Apple Pie

In my every attempt to be like Martha, I thought I'd try an apple pie recipe of hers out of her Baking Handbook. I don't recall trying this recipe before, but man did the pictures in her book look good!

First, I went apple picking last weekend! I got some gorgeous Macs and Galas. 

Chris was VERY excited to use our apple peeler/corer for the first time. I think he gave it to me for Christmas last year, but I can't remember. 

While he was working on the applies, I started on the dough. I actually made the dough the night before and put it in the fridge. I got to use my amazing marble dough board! I received this as a shower gift from my aunt and it is awesome, it works so well on pie dough.

I also used these cute little cutout tools. They were so fun!

It looks pretty good. I had Chris take it out of the oven while I was upstairs working on my quilt for the contest coming up soon, but I think I would have left it in for another 5 or so minutes. Some of the leaves didn't have a touch of golden brown on them, although it does look pretty perfect in this picture.

My husband and I are in the ongoing debate of serving apple pie with cheddar cheese or vanilla ice cream. What do you guys think? Ice cream or cheddar cheese?



  1. Looks delicious! I like both sides and will not choose one over the other for fear of supporting the wrong "team"... ;)

  2. Hahaha Tara, that is a very real fear. Chris likes it with cheese and I actually like both. I like it a la mode when it is warm, and with a la cheese when it is cold.

  3. Ooo the pie looks wonderful, Lauren!

  4. Looks delicious - your apple pie puts mine to shame :) lol And I've never heard of apple pie with cheese - with ice cream is the way to go :)
