Moms Apple Pie // Apple pie is one of those staples. If you're looking for a fantastic recipe, look no further. My recipe for Mom's Apple Pie was made with heart, soul, and love. Perfect for any holiday! | Tried and TastyI’m back with a bajillion photos and I’m still not apologizing. If you missed yesterday’s post I finally debuted our famous {to us} sweet potato pie recipe and shared a katrillion photos that I wasn’t sorry for. These pictures are priceless to me and the memories made are even more special. For those that don’t know me from Adam and this is your first time stepping foot on Tried and Tasty if you read Mom’s Kitchen & My Trip To South Carolina it’ll make a whole lot more sense. Basically my parents moved miles and miles away from us and I miss them like crazy. So I’ll hold on to these pictures like it’s nobody’s business. Let’s talk pie shall we.

It’s no secret that I’m not a pie fan. Never have been. I get hung up on the crust. Not making it.. eating it. There’s just something about pie crust that I just don’t like. Graham cracker crust? I could eat that all the day long. Pastry crust? No thanks. That’s a big part of the reason why I don’t have many pie recipes on my site. I LOVE the innerds. Topped with ice cream or fresh whipped cream? You betcha! When we were planning our trip to South Carolina I knew I wanted to bake something and for whatever reason pies were the first thing that came to mind. My dad loves apple so I figured that would be a great one to add to the list. So together my mom and I suited up in our aprons and baked the day away. Mostly she did the hard work and I took a bajillion photos of the whole process. Apples are a pretty subject so I had a hard time restraining myself.

    Yes, the crust makes ALL the difference in the world. I have found that the secret to a flaky crust is to add a bit of vinegar – it seems to do the trick for me. Regardless, that crust looks DELISH, so I’m sure you have it down!

      Thanks girl! Unfortunately flaky or not… I’m out. I just get get into it, which is fine – there are plenty of people that do like it! So I’ll share for them!
