Happy Pi Day, everyone!

In honor of our favorite mathematical constant, I had to bake a pie.

It was an apple pie, which I don’t have much experience with. I usually do pumpkin pie, or a small fruit like blueberry. The apples were generously contributed by my wonderful roomie.

After I made the pie crust, I peeled the apples (three green and one sweeter one) and then cut them into eighths.

There are only a bazillion recipes for apple pie online, but I ended up going with the “classics” – cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. There was also a little lemon juice and some orange concentrate.

This is gonna be delicious, guys!

After adding some sugar and flour and mixing that up with the apple slices, I tried just dumping the whole thing into the pie crust I had from earlier, but it was really… lumpy? So I poured it back in the mixing bowl and ended up laying them all out. It wasn’t precise by any means, but it made me happier.

We're in a pie, guys!

Most pies that I made either have no top, or a lattice top, so getting the hand of crimping a full-cover top took a little doing. Still, half of it looked pretty good!

You can see some obvious improvement from when I started

After that, I just cut some slits and popped it in the pre-heated oven. An hour later, it was done! Yum!

Eeeeaaaaaaaat meeeeeeeee

Happy Pi Day! ❤
