Apple pie is a specialty of mine. I make it for Thanksgiving, Christmas, sometimes even 4th of July (even though apples are technically out of season in the American summer). I’m not an enormous fan of baked fruit, but apple pie is just so tasty. Especially nice and hot with a big scoop of cold vanilla ice cream.
I’m pretty neurotic about my pie-making, as you’ll see below. The first time anyone not directly related to me saw me slicing up apples for pie, they expressed sincere concern for my sanity. Which is fair enough because (as, again, you’ll see below) I slice my apples in a completely insane and very time-consuming fashion. But they taste best this way. But if you chop yours a bit more coarsely, I’m sure they’ll be fine.
