|My simple, comforting apple pie.|
After a bit of research I learned that apple pie is actually of English origin. (We not only fought a revolutionary war but stole their pie recipe in the process? Talk about insult to injury) Yet over time it has become a staple on the American holiday table as well as the McDonald's drive-thru menu.
At first I was daunted by the idea of baking a pie from scratch. There's an overwhelming amount of recipes on the internet, but I eventually chose Martha Stewart's Old-Fashioned Apple Pie. I must say, it came out just lovely. Almost as good as one from Publix. Almost.
After all, there's nothing more American than that.
