Today I took on the challenge of baking my very first Apple Pie. However I should have put a baking sheet under the pie as now I have Apple pie filling drippings all over the bottom of my stove. I know what choir I will have to be doing next.
Fall is my all time favorite. It is full of the scents of baking and slow cooker meals along with getting ready for the Holiday season.
I used my small leave cookie cutter from Pampered Chef to cut out 4 leaf shapes. I then placed them diagonally on top of the pie over the cut shapes. This took the place of cutting slits. Know just to try a piece and taste it.
