In honour of Pi Day (March 14 or 3.14), we decided to bake apple pies.
We bought pie crusts at the supermarket. One with gluten and one gluten-free.
We followed a recipe for the filling from the "Joy of Cooking" cook book.
First we washed and peeled the apples.
While we were preheating the oven, we cut up the apples and added lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, salt and cornstarch. (We didn't have any nutmeg!)We made sure the apples were coated with the sugar mix.
We put the apples in the pie crust.
I put a little water along the edge of the pie crust before Dad added the top.
And then I crimped down the top and bottom of the pie crust together.
I pierced the pie crust.
And we put them in the oven to bake.
The gluten-free one didn't come out looking too good... but it's the taste that counts.
Can you see the π symbol?
They tasted really good!
