It’s been a bit quiet in the Gigibird kitchen of late….it isn’t because I haven’t been cooking and baking but somehow I just haven’t got round to taking the obligatory photos….I will be baking next week when I have all the ingredients in place but for now here is yesterdays apple pie and a rare glimpse of a tidy corner.
I usually resist my husbands plea to make an apple pie, or any pie come to that because I have a bit of a mental block with pastry….it’s not because I can’t make it, I can but I view it as very unhealthy opposed to a crumble which we all know is overflowing with healthy benefits!
This is a one crust pie which can't really go wrong - however rough and ready it looks before it goes into the oven it comes out greatly improved.
My only advice about fruit pie making is, is to sprinkle the bottom with an absorbent substance - semolina, ground almonds, or in this case ground rice.
Almost forgot - a clear stretch of kitchen
