My First Apple Pie!

Last Friday I made my first apple pie! From scratch! Crust and all!

This is a big milestone for me because every fall since we got been married I've had the intention of making one. But this year I actually did it instead of just planning to do it.

It's also a milestone because this scores me a few homemaking points. Because you know what?? It was good! I didn't mess it up! One step closer to domestic goddess. Still miles and miles away, but one step closer ;-)
In my delusional efforts toward creativity, I decided to use an apple-shaped cookie cutter on the top crust because I had seen something similar but with stars on this blog last summer. Go ahead and click the link...I'll wait here for you. And then we can have a good laugh together at the comparison :-)

bahahahahah! I wish I could blame the terrible lighting for how bad it looks, but even perfect lighting and a professional photographer couldn't have made my pie look good.

But ya know what? It was delicious. Like, really, really good. Luke and I enjoyed warm slices with vanilla ice cream on Friday night, and it was heavenly. And delicious trumps pretty, right? Right??

Here's the recipe, in case you're interested :-)


  1. I think it looks delicious! Good job!

  2. I'm impressed with your first effort! I've never made apple pie either but I'm thinking I might need to give it a shot this year.

  3. awww congrats!!!! i think your first pie is always such a huge milestone. my mom had to help me make my first apple pie...i'm still too scared to do it completely on my own. i love your bonus creativity! :)

  4. Go you for making an apple pie :). I couldn't do it, that's for sure!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
