Dotting the apples with butter
Vanilla ice cream is essential with apple pie.
Gabe loves pie.
As I've said before, Gabe loves pie. His favorites are blueberry and apple so I decided to make him an apple pie on Sunday. I used the recipe from More From Magnolia and while I'm still perfecting the crust, the pie tasted delicious. Sarah bought this cookbook for me as a birthday gift one year and I continue to find the best recipes from it. Gabe and I frequently have this "situation" where he'll come home looking forward to eating something and I'll have already eaten it. Thankfully pie isn't my biggest weakness, so hopefully I'll be able to hold back on eating the rest of it before he makes it home again. This reminds me of one of my favorite Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey.
When you die, if you get a choice between going to regular heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It might be a trick, but if it's not, mmmmmmm, boy.
