Episode details

It's apple pie season... but what if you don't know how to make an apple pie? Let me be your apple pie therapist and walk you through it. There are lots of things to think about: butter vs. shortening, food processor vs. fingers, Granny Smith vs. an assortment of apples. In this session, I walk you through the entire process: from keeping your butter cold (I say that a lot), to peeling your apples, to rolling out your pie dough, to getting it beautifully brown in the oven. Take it from me, a former pie wimp... if I can make a gorgeous apple pie, so can you.
