A Delicious Slice of Home made Apple Pie
Delicious Home made Apple Pie
One of my very favorite desserts is, Apple Pie. When I was a little girl, we lived on a school property for a few months, as my father was the new school principal. Everyday, a huge bakery truck delivered bread to the school. In those days, children were given free meals at school.
My mother would go to the truck and purchase cakes for my brother and I,(we were too young to attend school.) One of those cakes was, apple pie, in a small pie shaped carton. I loved the sweet and somewhat tangy flavor of the apples, encased in, melt in the mouth pastry.
Growing up, I continued to purchase those little apple pies. At restaurants, most often, I would choose apple pie with ice cream or whipped cream, for dessert. So my love of apple pie is how I came to learn to make apple pie. I think the kind I make, bears a close resemblance to the apple pies of my childhood days, and a lot better than some I have tasted at several restaurants.
Here is my recipe for, Shortbread Apple Pie.

There are many ways to make this delicious dessert. Some add the apples directly into the pastry, some do not peel the apples, use different pastry, like puff pastry and so forth. I have tried other versions and will publish some of those as well.
Those on special diets should substitute ingredients that comply with a particular health condition. Please note that icing sugar, as we know it in South Africa, is the same product as Confectioners Powdered Sugar in the USA.
