I felt my gears slowly shifting this weekend as I craved to bake something on Sunday. This wanting to stay indoors on a Sunday is something that usually does not hit me until the colder winter months when hibernation feels about right. But life has been so hectic and the girls are getting so much more school work than last year that I felt that a quiet Sunday afternoon will do us good.
So I pulled my old and tattered Joy of Cooking cookbook and opened to the Apple Pie page. I love, love this recipe as it is wonderful and easy to follow. I still had to allot two to three hours of cooling off after baking to make the apple pie sauce thicker and juicier. Of course, I served the pie a la mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Ah, what a little bit of sweet can do for the soul!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
