Day 2069 - I Won! I Won! I Won!

Greetings, Bloggy Winners!

I won the apple pie bakeoff at work yesterday. Here's a picture. My prize? A gym bag with the company logo on it. One of the other contestants tasted my pie and said 'Yours IS better than mine'. I really appreciated that.

I'll tell you one thing - trying to BAKE at 4:45am is NOT fun!

Aunt Nancy wanted to know the recipe... This assumes you've got the crust ready or purchased crust. I made my own.

2 large Gala apples, cored and peeled and cut in slices.
2 large Granny Smith apples, cored and peeled and cut in slices.

Mix together these dry ingredients, then add the apples and mix well.
3/4 cup of sugar
some cinnamon - not much
just a speck of nutmeg
a few tablespoons of flour (so the pie isn't too runny)
about 1/8 cup of craisins
about 1/8 cup of walnuts, chopped

Line a pie plate with the bottom crust, pour the above into it, dot with butter (I forgot this step), and put on the top crust.

Everyone loved the addition of a few craisins and walnuts, I'd do that again!

Hi Karen! I'm trying again to make a comment--earlier my computer decided to freeze up just as I was starting to exclaim how proud I am of you for this wonderful achievement! Some computer experts are only nerds, but not you, jack of all trades! Is there anything you can't do? I'm writing so late as we worked on the food counter at the Jones Band dance at the Legion Hall, so just got home after 11, then checked out the World Series. Again congratulations!!!!!
