i watched a couple of episodes of "mad men" the other day and so i was feeling very 1960's housewife and i thought i would make an apple pie from scratch. this was weird because 1. i made it for jessica's summer solstice party and i didn't need to make something nearly as involved as a double-crust pie (its WAY more involved than it looks) and 2. i don't even really like pie. buuut nevertheless, i made it. i used this recipe and i cooked it for the minimum amount of time because i was running late, but i definitely would have cooked it longer because the apples were pretty underdone. but, it looked BEAUTIFUL:
i would definitely recommend a warm slice a la mode. yummmy (i think pie is growing on me...)
p.s. ariel took loads of pictures at jessica's lovely summer solstice party and she happened to capture this lovely moment in time:
i literally canNOT stop laughing everytime i look at this picture...
