An Apple Pie Visit


We are visiting my parents this weekend. They live in Michigan, but it is about a four hour drive, so we don't make the trip very often during the school year. When we do visit, my parents do a good job trying to fit in as much fun for my kids as possible. There is a sledding hill in the backyard, lots of snow, sewing, ping pong and today there was pie making. My daughter really wanted to make a pie. So, my mom made sure it would happen and let her do all the fun parts. Here is a photo progression from start to finish.

 She chopped all those apples to the left.

 Fluting the crust

 Making the crumble.

 Ready for the oven.

Ta-Da!
Pretty delicious too.

  1. Oh, that pie looks good. Granted, I'm off of gluten, but looking at that makes me want to cheat just a bit.

    Glad you're having some good family time with your folks!

  3. How wonderful for the baking bug to be passed on from generation to generation. That is how I learned. Grandmother to mother to me to my daughter and my son gets in on the fun when we bake cookies. I enjoyed the gleam in your daughter's eyes, Betsy.
