Notes: This was so yummy! I suck at making pie crusts though, always. This one is a great recipe and you can probably nail it, but I suck at making them! This is a pate brisee dough, for those who know what that means. Im sorry for being so behind in my blogging, but we are all up to date now, and look forward to more intimate recipes than what I have been doing. Im in the house alone waiting for the roomies to come home and smell a house of apples and cinnamon. Enjoy with ice cream!
