TWD All-American All-Delicious Apple Pie

There are few things better than good, old fashioned apple pie.  It was one of the first things that I tried to make when I was learning to cook.  Back then I turned to the red and black plaid Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.  Surprisingly, the recipe I found there is very much the same as Dorie's.  It makes a delicious pie that is really hard to improve on.  I used a mixture of Gala and Jonagold apples and substituted flour for the tapioca. The super buttery Good for Almost Anything Pie Crust made this pie taste extra special.

 My family gobbled this pie up so quickly that I barely got to take a picture.  They asked why I hadn't made two.  Thanks to Emily of Sandmuffin for this great pick.

That is funny that they asked why you didn't make 2. This is one that my husband and kids are not asking me to take to someone else. :)

I've used that BH&G apple pie recipe for years as well. But I think this is my new "go-to" apple pie. Love the pie dough! Definitely a favorite for me.
