Happy Thanksgiving 2010:Easy as Applie pie :)

This year, my husband Matt & I were invited to our friends Malinda and BJ’s home for Thanksgiving dinner.  I was so excited to spend a second thanksgiving with them this year; they are usual attendees at our Canadian Thanksgiving celebration in October.   Malinda and I went shopping wednesday after a crazy work day but with her list in hand we found everything she needed in about an hour.  She even bought all the ingredients for me to make two apple pies to bring over.  Mission accepted!

A few years ago my friend Sarah and I made an Apple pie which turned out amazing but without Sarah here, I was in undiscovered territory.  So I went home with 2 boxes of Pillsbury ready made pie crust (A little help from the store on Thanksgiving is a must!), 12 Granny Smith apples, cinnamon and sugar; knowing I’d probably have the rest of the ingredients at home.

Ingredients for TWO Apple Pies:

2 boxes of Pillsbury ready made pie crust
12 Granny Smith apples ( Then I peeled, cored and sliced)
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1/2 stick of butter cut into cubes

Assembly line ...

Mix the cinnamon, flour, sugar and nutmeg in a bowl.  Add apples and Vanilla to mixture and mix it all well making sure all apple slices are covered.

Mix it up!

Lightly butter two pie plates and place one crust in each pan.  Divide ingredients into each pie pan and dot with butter cubes.

Fill'er up

Cover with top pie crust ( I used cute little cookie cutter to decorate the top crust).

Ready to Bake!

Crimp the sides and brush with milk and sprinkle sugar on top.
Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes or until done.

Pie #2

Nothing makes your house smell better than apple pies.  Hope every had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We had an amazing time at BJ and Malinda’s, with their family and friends…it was truly an honor to be a part of it.  Thanks guys!
