My childhood memories of both of my grandmas revolve heavily around apple pie. Both of them always had tons of pies stored in their freezer, ready to whip out at a moments notice for company, or to send to a friend in need of encouragement.
I’ve only managed this feat once before, and it was very nice to have something homemade, ready to take to a friend with a new baby or potluck at church.
My grandma and her sister-in-law used to get together every fall and bake over 30 pies in one day. While I don’t think I’ll have that kind of time until I’m retired, my friend and I were able to crank out 10 in one day around teaching schedules and kindergarten/daycare pick up and drop off.
I’ll show you what you need and how to get fancy if you want. I’ve also linked to some blogger friends favourite versions of apple pie. I personally use the crust recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.
