My My, Miss American Pie

This is my FIRST EVER apple pie, made back in August after my little B's harvested all the apples from our little apple tree. Remember the one we trimmed back in February (First Week In February Fun)? It was actually quite delicious! The only flaw is that it was a just a tad bit runny, but as luck would have it, an apple pie making expert just happened to stop by, and she told me the secret (add a bit of flour)! I come from a long line of Pie Making Goddesses (my mother, her mother and probably my grandmother's mother!). It was a little more time consuming than I prefer for cooking, but we ate every bite of it, and since we used the apples my B's had picked themselves, totally organic, right? The only fly in the ointment was the mess it made in my oven, which I tried to avoid by cooking the pie on a cookie sheet. Unfortunately, the cookie sheet was flat, without any edges, so it still ran over and made a certifiable disaster area in my oven. All in all, though, I'd have to say my Miss American Apple Pie was a success! The best part was that my little B's were super proud of me, and that's all the praise I needed.
