PERFECT APPLE PIE


PERFECT APPLE PIE
Who could teach you better than The Old Farmer’s Almanac? We call our recipe the Perfect Apple Pie because it
has that easy, buttery homemade pie crust you love, and the right mix of apples for that fruity, not gooey, taste.
Note: Be sure to use fresh new apples that are kept cold in the refrigerator. Older apples and/or apples that are
stored at room temperature can turn even a firm apple to mush. This is why we added a step of putting your
cooked apples in the freezer to keep them firm! We particularly love Granny Smith apples, but you can substitute
other apples. Just avoid really soft apples such as McIntosh apples, which would give you a soupy pie.
