craving the classic

  Okay, so I was craving apple pie. Not only the taste and all the goodness that apple pie conjures up, but the smell. I just wanted to smell the holy goodness that only apples, cinnamon, and pastry can attempt... I know most of us are in the mists of summer and apple pie seems like such a wintery comfort, but  I seemingly just couldn't help myself.
I'm not going to post the recipe for this one since I'm sure you all have a old time favorite lurking in you're kitchen somewhere and on the other hand mine was a little bit of a flop. How you ask? Well lets just say I'm not an expert on making crust edges and mine decided to droop and creep around the pan.  I did follow Jamie Oliver's recipe for short crust pastry and it couldn't have been easier. I'm not going to blame Jamie for this one... it was a no fail crust that I managed to forget to put in the fridge to firm.  I think  eagerness got in the way.

Looks good from here! But I know how crusts can be...well, crusty in their behavior. And the eagerness issue, I can't count the number of times I've burnt my tongue on a brownie or had my frosting turn into a puddle on a cake just so I could have a slice. :)

I love the photos of it too, the green apple against the pretty table cloth looks so striking!
