Apple pie

Saturday is apple pie day. In an attempt to sell the fruit from more than a hundred apple trees, my mom and sisters designated Friday as baking day. Yesterday they peeled, sliced, mixed and rolled pie after pie. Some of the pies are destined for the farmer's market, some for our roadside stand, and a couple for the blueberry farm. Any leftovers may find their way to our Sunday dinner table.


  1. The Cook's bounty continues to grow! What time is Sunday dinner?:-)

    Would you be able to share your pie crust recipe? It looks beautiful!

  2. 5 & 6 are very impressive. I like the fresh apple pie sign addition. Do you have any regular roadside pie customers yet?

  3. PS: Grandpa would have been your most faithful know he only liked two kinds of pie :)

  4. Now I'm hungry for apple pie :) . . . those look beautiful not to mention delicious!

  5. WOW! this post almost makes me want to buy an apple pie...and there are six of them sitting in the kitchen!

    pie crust:

    1/2 shortening (has to be real Crisco not butter or any substitute)
    1 and 1/2 cup flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    cut shortening into sifted flour
    add cold water (aprox 3T)
    gently form ball

    split in half and roll to desired pie size
