My Thanksgiving Baking

I know it was last week, but I never did post the two Apple Pies I baked! After a being at the multi-cultural potluck until 3am, I woke up bright and early the next morning to bake pies. I got started at 8am with the crust. Once that was ready, I chopped up approximately 9 large apples.

Sometimes I'm tempted to just bake it like this.

Better yet, like this, after it's been dotted with butter.

But in the end, what harm would another layer of a buttery crust do, really?

Did I mention I made two pies?

Here is pie number one in all of it's baked glory.

And pie number two, fresh out of the oven.

Notice the bubbling juices..

Those bubbling juices left my house smelling like apple pie for days! Torture, because after Thanksgiving, I had no pie left!

Your pie was absolutely adorable. Makes me want to break out my cookie cutters and whip up some grandpa Leanord's Pir crust
