amy friend asked me for this recipe so here goes...snarky comments and all.



First things first the ingredients: when making fruit pies my nan said it best "Don't f#@& around with what God already made delicious." Oh and I use ready made pie crust, I don't do my own dental work either.




We are making a rosette pie today. I wanted to keep the color on the peel (you'll see why) so to keep the "filling" from getting tough I'm slicing the apples as thin as possible, then putting them in a bit of water with lemon juice to keep them from browning.


Pause to administer first aid. There is no blood in the pie I promise.


Since I cut myself I was done cutting apples but I think there is plenty. So the idea is simple arrange the slices around from the outside in. Oh now is a good time to preheat the oven at 400.


Almost ready to bake.


1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar, zest of half a lemon, and several good shakes of cinnamon. Cook till syrupy but don't touch it's the temp of the center of the sun.




I used a pastry brush to glaze the apples cuz I didn't want any on the crust. Now off to the oven.


Now isn't that nice. 35 minutes in the oven. Slicing the apples is the hardest part and I'm not going to lie I lost a pint of blood, but I think in the end it was worth it.


Enjoy!

Gorgeous, gorgeous! As for slicing the apples, I might recommend using a mandolin. That way you can slice the apples super thin and you also just might be so lucky as to slice off some knuckle skin, too!

Also - gotta say, I agree with your nan.

Thanks guys. Really its easier than it looks if just a bit labor intensive, and if we didn't like labor intensive projects we wouldn't be on craftster right?

Absolutely which is why I am procrastinating on my project.

This pie is also too pretty to eat, I would be of that mindset for maybe 15 minutes (about the time I would allow it to cool).

That looks so pretty! Making your own pie crust is pretty easy. Especially if you have a pastry cutter or a food processor. If you have the patience to arrange all those apples then you sure as heck can make a pie crust:P
