I am ashamed to admit...that this was the first ever apple pie I have made from scratch. I have always just purchased ready made pies from the store. Why you ask? I was scared of making pie crust. Totally intimidated, freaked out, and worried I would waste all that apple goodness to a crappy crust. So this year I decided to bite the bullet and make it...well I have to say I was super happy with the results!! I did a lot of research before I started...got a lot of tips from the pro's and just used a little common sense when picking out the ingredients (read: Butter is ALWAYS better!). Here are my step by step instructions to a beautiful flaky apple pie!
Add 1 Cup cubed butter to the food processor and pulse until the butter and flour mixture turns into little butter clumps.
There you have it...perfectly crispy, flaky crust!
I will have two more fall desserts this week, just in time for Thanksgiving weekend!
