apple pie

Last Thanksgiving was my first holiday to contribute to the food spread (since I'm now married and that's what married people do) and my food assignment was a dessert. I was at a loss of what to bake. My mom gave me a recipe she had for Upside Down Apple Pie. It didn't seem that hard so I gave it a shot. My first apple pie was a tasty success! But it looked ugly. My father-in-law told me the only apple pie he would ever eat was his mother-in-law's and since she passed, he hadn't eaten apple pie...until mine, who cares what it looks like.

Ever since that day they all look ugly - the kicker - you put it together upside down and have to flip the pie after it cooks. Every time I flip, it always falls apart.

In an attempt to satisfy my father-in-law's cravings and to clean out my refrigerator before the big move, I spent Memorial Day afternoon baking. And voila! It didn't fall apart, was so pretty, and was supppper delicious!
