My parents are amazing, and every time we visit though summer we come home with a car full of fruit and veg. Cooking apples give me a brilliant excuse to make a pie! The other half complained that he had to wait for us to visit them and I wouldn’t just go and buy apples to make one, I did explain that this just isn’t the same….I think he now agrees! Anyway, after our last visit (about a month ago, yes, this blog post has been a long time coming!) I finally made him an apple pie, and oh my goodness it was scrummy! And it didn’t look all that bad either!
I wont claim that it is my recipe, far from it, it was from the trusty Hairy Bikers, http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/perfect_apple_pie_73735. It genuinely is the nicest apple pie ever! Made even better by the fact that I made a batch of vanilla angel delight ice cream to go with it. This stuff is also amazing! We don’t eat much ice cream, so having an occasional, very nice batch is definitely the way forward in our house!
